"Here at SBC we exist for young people to see God and know truly what God is like. We are here for young people, to help them have encounters with God and be equipped to be everything God has created them to be…
…we believe that everyone is loved by God and we want to show young people who God is and his love for them.
In John 10:10 Jesus says: “I have come so that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Here at SBC our desire is to show young people the ‘life in it’s fullness’ that God has for them.
James, Youth Pastor
The Youth Ministry at SBC is overseen by our Youth Pastor, James Henson, who is supported by a fantastic team of volunteers from the Church.

Edge Youth Group

Edge is a group where young people can come and hang out with friends, meet new people, have fun and learn more about who God is and what it means to be a Christian. It runs Monday evenings in school term time from 6-7:30pm here at Church. We like to play a variety of games, indoor, outdoor and as a group.
Ignite Youth Group
(School Years 9-13)
Ignite is a group for young people to get together with friends, play games and discover who God is and what it means to have a relationship with God. It runs Thursday evenings in term time from 7-9pm here at Church. We play games such as: Fifa, guitar hero, football, table tennis, pool and much more!
Edge & Ignite run most Sunday mornings during the 10:30am service, except on the 2nd Sunday of the month when we are all together in the service. We start out in ‘The Hut’ from the beginning with both together, where we have games, followed by worship and then both groups separate into their own groups to look at the Bible and discuss questions we may have about God, faith, and life as a Christian.
(School years 7-13)
Never been to church in your life? Not sure if God is even real? You are welcome whether you belong to a faith community or not. Unite is a monthly event for all young people across Aylesbury, to hang out together, play games and discover who God is. Unite happens every 3rd Sunday of the month at Holy Trinity Aylesbury from 7-8:30pm. We often spend time at the beginning hanging out, playing games then gather together for a big funny game. We like to worship God together then hear a talk about God from one of the leaders.
(School years 12+)
The Lounge is a group for young adults to come and meet together to grow and develop in their faith. We discuss some of life’s big questions like: why am I here? How do I develop my relationship with God? What should I do with my life? It runs on a 3rd Sunday morning during the 10:30am service after the worship in the office lounge. We like to enjoy tea, coffee, hot chocolate and bacon butties as we hang out together.
(School years 12+)
Open House is a life group for young adults to come and meet together every week and develop friendships and their faith. It runs every Tuesday evening in term time from 4:30-6:30pm at James’ house. When we meet together we like to catch up with each other, play a game and study the Bible together.
