Our All-Age Worship on Sunday mornings at 9.30am is designed especially with families in mind, from young children through to adults. This allows all to leave feeling that they have experienced something valuable, achieved through the informal worship pattern and age-appropriate Sunday School lessons and activities.
YOUTH PROGRAMMING P6-S6
Youth Group (the MSYG) (P6-S6) - Sundays 6:00 - 8:30 PM (P6-S1 from 6-7pm; S2-S6 from 7:15-8:30pm) in the Youth Room (location and times may vary)
Each month of the MSYG has a weekly rotation of Social, Service and Discussion nights. There will always be snacks (and sometimes dinner!) Each night will start off with 10 minutes of free time.
Social: On social nights there will be an activity (i.e. bonfire, quiz night, sport, game tournament, holiday parties, etc.) focused on having some time together to chill and chat.
Service: On service nights we will focus on both local, and international service projects and organisations either with guest speakers, or by getting engaged in the work as a group. Some of these organisations includes Amnesty International, Edinburgh NW food bank.
Discussion: On these evenings, we will either have a topic for discussion, or 'Question Time' evening with special guests. Youth will be able to submit questions before the evening for an engaged conversation. We'll cover topics such as evolution and creation, the Bible, climate change, and other faith traditions.
Youth Worship Night (All Ages) - Last Sunday evening of every month - 7:00 pm
Contemporary style worship for the young and the young at heart; time spent in reflection through prayer, the word and music.
Breakfast Club (12-16+) - Twice a month during the 9:30 service
The Breakfast Club will meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month (unless otherwise noted) during the 9:30 service for 12-16s. The Breakfast Club is an extended time for the teenagers to engage in discussion over breakfast!
Upcoming dates for The Breakfast Club: 5 & 19 Sep, 3 Oct, 7 & 21 Nov, 5 & 19 Dec 2021
Social Outings and Special Events
Throughout the week our young people attend a wide variety of schools, so Sunday may be the only chance they see each other regularly. Social activities encourage them to get to know each other better, and build friendships.
Other opportunities to connect
WhatsApp: There is a Youth Group WhatsApp group which is there for reminders about events and activities - if you would like to be added, please contact Hillary
Instagram: The Youth Group has an instagram and we would love you to follow it! The username is: the.msyg
Our Youth Instagram Prayer Space, 'Time Out Tuesdays,' will be happening weekly each Tuesday. It will be live on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:40am before school, and pre-recorded and posted every other week. Every week will be a little bit different, but it will be a chance for mindfulness, prayer and spiritual reflection together.
S2-S6 Book Group: We will be having another S2-S6 book group for three nights on Mondays 25 Oct and 1 & 8 November at 730pm. We are going to be reading Rowan Williams’ “Being Disciples” which is a follow-up to his “Being Christian” book that we read last spring. There are 6 chapters, so we will tackle 2 each week (the chapters are about 14 pages each, and the book is the same length as the last one!). We’ll also take a little time to pray or meditate together each night. We will be meeting on Zoom initially - please be in touch with Hillary if you are interested and she can order you a book!
