TNG - The Next Generation
TNG meet on Sundays during the morning service in the stage room of the Church Hall. This is a short session that includes games and discussion around themes from the Christian faith. It is geared to young people at Secondary School.
We also meet on Tuesday evenings during term time from 6.30pm to 8pm in the Church. We enjoy a mixture of fun, games, craft activities and Bible teaching. We invite you to come along and bring your friends.
TNG have also done one-off events, for example, decorating the Church Christmas tree and a baking afternoon for Children in Need
On Sunday afternoons we have a group called Space for school years 9 and above (13-18 year olds) which aims to provide more relevant content and discuss topics more appropriate to their age group. Building relationships with each other is a big focus of this group.
Elizabeth Lucas leads our youth work.
Two of our young people have been identified as young leaders and have been attending monthly training and are being mentored as part of the course. One helps with TNG, both on Sundays and Tuesdays and the other with any of the children or young people’s groups.
At St Peter's we take the safety and wellbeing of our children, young people and vulnerable adults extremely seriously. We have a Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy and Procedure which is reviewed annually by our Parochial Church Council and is in line with the advised policies provided by the Diocese of Peterborough. We are committed to good working practice, including safe recruitment of workers. A copy of our Policy for the Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults and a link to the Safeguarding pages of the Diocesan website can be found below. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Jim Reynolds, who can be contacted by email
