St Luke’s has plenty of events and programmes running for children and young people of all ages but this page is dedicated especially for teenagers.

We run a weekly discussion group on Sunday afternoons especially for teenagers, you can email Sarah Watson if you’d like to join in and she’ll send you the details so you can login.

SUNDAY 29th November

This weekend is Advent Sunday when we begin the countdown to Christmas and it is a time to think about the future.  The Bible passage we are focussing on is Mark 13:24-37. Watch a video representation of this passage here

SUNDAY 22nd November

The parable of the sheep and the goats is in Matthew 25:31-46 and one of the things Jesus talks about is quite a difficult idea.  Look at the TDG sheet for some more information about the Sunday discussion this week.
TDG sheet for Sunday 22nd November

SUNDAY 15th November

We all have different talents and the teen years are a great time to explore this and work out what we’re best at.  Jesus talked about using our talents to the best of our ability – you can read about that here.

SUNDAY 8th November

Remembrance Sunday can be challenging to think about as it raises all sorts of questions about our attitude to war, the armed forces and to death and bereavement.  The teen discussion on Sunday will look at these issues in a sensitive way and ask what it means to really love each other.
There’s a discussion sheet to download here

SUNDAY 1st November

What does it mean to be blessed?  This word has lots of different meanings these days.  Jesus had a lot to say about being blessed and this will be the discussion topic on Sunday.

SUNDAY 25th October

Jesus said: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…. and love your neighbour as yourself”.  The teen discussion this Sunday afternoon will be about how we could do this.  There’s a discussion sheet and link to a video that you can download here.

SUNDAY 18th October

This Sunday is St. Luke’s day and so the main reading in our Sunday service comes from his gospel and is about sending the disciples out to tell people the good news.  Jesus told them to go out without even packing a travel bag – how would you feel having to make do with just the clothes on your back?

SUNDAY 11th October

Jesus told the parable of the wedding feast and how different people responded to the invitation to attend.  How would you respond to an invitation from God – discuss this and anything else you’re interested in with Sarah and the gang at 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon.
Here’s a discussion sheet to get you started

SUNDAY 4th October

This week we’re looking at another parable that Jesus told that sounds a lot like his own life, you can read about it in Matthew 21:33-46.  In the discussion sheet this week there’s a link to a great music video by MercyMe, you can get the sheet here.

SUNDAY 27th September

The story that Jesus tells this week is about two brothers, one doesn’t do what he promised to do and the other does do what he previously refused to do – confusing?  Log in to the Zoom with Sarah on Sunday to chat about promise keeping and the other thoughts outlined in the TDG sheet which you can find here.

SUNDAY 20th September

The Bible reading for this Sunday is a bit puzzling as Jesus seems to be saying that it’s OK to treat workers unfairly – have a read of it here Matthew 20:1-16.  There’s a discussion sheet to help with the Zoom chat which is happening this week at 2.30pm on Sunday – click here.

SUNDAY 13th September

TDG won’t be meeting this Sunday but there’s still lots to think about on the TDG discussion sheet which you can find here

SUNDAY 6th September

This week the teen discussion will think about what Jesus meant when he said ‘where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there also’, especially in lockdown time when we can’t be together in the same room.
You can find the discussion sheet and links to videos here.

SUNDAY 30th August

Our teens are enjoying meeting via Zoom on Sundays and discussing all sorts of topics – this week we’re asking what did Jesus mean when he told us to pick up our cross and follow him?  What does following Jesus mean to you?
