Our Youth Team
Our youth pastor is Kathryn Belmont, who is supported by a core team of volunteers, with whom she works closely, prays together, discusses ideas, evaluates the programme and builds relationships. All Saints’ works closely with Tees Valley Youth for Christ.
We run midweek groups that are age-specific and focused on young people sharing life and learning more about God’s amazing plan for their lives.
School term time on Fridays from 7pm to 9pm for Years 7-13. Barbecues, games in the park, open mic evenings, tramp suppers, ice skating, movie nights, talent nights, guest evenings…
Based at Egglescliffe School where we take assemblies for year 7, 8 and 9 students. We also support and resource a Christian Union at the school.
During the spring and summer we have a team that hangs out in the local park and befriends groups of young people there.
Every summer we take a large group of young people, including some from neighbouring churches to Soul Survivor – an amazing experience.
Roughly every other year, we take a group of young people overseas on mission. We have now organised four trips to Mexico with Amor Ministries to build a house for a homeless family.
