We believe that God has called us to nurture and disciple young adults to live well for Jesus in contemporary culture.
We have a desire to see young adults grow to maturity in Christ and live provocative, counter-cultural lives that will bring transformation to their generation.
Young adults live with continuous pressures from our society. They are the key target for countless marketing strategies across the world, and there are unrealistically high expectations of them in their work, their social and recreational activities, not to mention the way they dress and look. This generation (18–30 somethings) are described by the Evangelical Alliance as ‘the missing generation of the UK church’ because there are so few of this generation that have stuck with Jesus and church.
At CCBC we want to see this trend changed. We have a dedicated young adult homegroup calledKinetic which meets most Wednesday evenings for worship, prayer, encouragement, and growing as disciples. This core group also hosts socials and meals from time to time, and meets on a Sunday evening in the Volunteer Pub (Campden High Street) after the evening service. Kinetic also runs the Chillout Zone alongside Dover’s Games, and goes to Momentum at the end of August.
We also run an internship programme for 18+ year olds wanting to serve for a year with a local church.
