Well in the Wilderness…


Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of our decision to close Penny’s Youth Cafe and postpone church youth gatherings for the foreseeable future. 

We are keen to explore new ways of staying connected with young people so we will be making good use of modern technology to continue to provide fellowship and Bible study opportunities. 

A picture was shared by Geoff Lanham on Sunday evening of a well in the wilderness with an encouragement to us all to find ways to stay connected to each other and God during the challenging times ahead.  With this in mind we have some ideas which are highlighted below…


Staying connected:

Well in the Wilderness: Daily Instagram Live at 8pm starting 19th March.  The 8 minute video will include a reading from Luke’s gospel and a short message shared by different leaders from the youth team and church.  Please follow kpc_youth on Instagram for more details.  The recording will also be available on Youtube for any young people who do not have an Instagram account (search for KPCYouth Well in the Wilderness on Youtube from tonight at 9pm for episode 1!).

Zoom: There will be youth home groups available on Zoom next week which will all be recorded.  We will be in touch with more details about how parents/young people can sign up for Zoom and join the group chats.

Penny’s @ Easter: From next week we will be creating a Youtube series which will unpack different aspects of the Easter story.  Please subscribe to pennysyouthcafe on Youtube next week to learn more.

St Philip’s & St James’ Church: Jon Hall will be developing a prayer and Bible study programme on social media which we would love to encourage everyone to try to access.  Please follow them on Instagram @SPJ_youth and/or check out their website: www.stphilipsandstjames.org


Future youth events:

We are sorry to report that all upcoming youth events (eg. Church on the Wood mission and RUSH UK) are postponed although we still hope to be able to take a group in the summer to the :

Lit Residential (August 22-26th 2020).  Limited spaces are still available and we hope to go indoor rock climbing, gorge walking and visit The Big Pit as well as the beach, so please let us know if you are interested by emailing the team (youthteam@kpc.org.uk).  Further details can be found in the Youth News section of the website.


Thank you again for your continued support.

God bless you,

Paul, Natasha, Henry and Jon
