Welcome to WBC Youth!


We have a vibrant youth group, made up of young people from lots of different local schools around Ashford. They are united by a love for Jesus, are fiercely loyal to one another and love inviting newcomers in to be a part of their everyday lives. Through our programmes Blaze, Furnace (bible studies) and Ignite (social), they are given opportunities to go deeper with God and in friendship with one another - spurring one another on in their faith and supporting one another in their everyday life!


Years 7-13 | Friday nights at 7-9pm | Fun, games, snacks, social with short God slot

Ignite is where we hope to spark an interest in the young people that come along to get to know more about Jesus while having a lot of fun, playing games and eating snacks


Years 6-8 | Sunday mornings at WBC | Bible study

Blaze is where those in years 6-8 start exploring the Bible together, going deeper in their relationship with Jesus


Years 9-13 | Monday Nights 7-9pm at Katie’s house | Pizza, Bible study and fun

Furnace is a space for those in years 9-13 to explore their faith, dig into Scripture, have fun, and eat pizza together
