Young people are very welcome here at Oakham Baptist Church.  We currently have two different groups serving our Youth at OBC:

  • Connect is for young people in Years 6-8 and takes place on Sunday mornings, during the second service.
  • Encounter is for young people in Years 9-13 and meets twice a month, on Sunday evenings.

On Sunday mornings, our young people are encouraged to develop their gifts and learn first-hand about serving in an area of church life. Currently we have young people helping in the children’s groups, playing in the worship band and running the sound desk and visuals for our services.

Everyone who works with our young people goes through a formal recruitment process, including a DBS check, and receives regular safeguarding training. For more details about our safeguarding policy, please click here.

For further information on our youth activities, please contact our children’s worker, Julie Barnwell.
