Info for Parents
What’s KingsGate Youth all about?
We want to support and encourage every young person, wherever they’re at on their journey with God. We believe God has a plan and a purpose for their lives and that they have, in the hands of God, a great future to look forward to.
Are all the events supervised?
All of our programmes are supervised and overseen by our team of adult leaders. Our team have undergone DBS checks and agreed to work under our Child Protection Policy. Our aim is not only to create a fun, positive atmosphere at all of our events, but also create a safe and secure environment, where young people are supported and cared for.
Does my child need a consent form for events?
For events such as Friday nights and Sunday mornings we will take down your contact details in case we need to get hold of you, however a consent form is not needed. A consent form will be needed for trips outside of the church building and when we require a payment.
A minibus service runs every Sunday morning, subject to availability – please contact the church office (01733 311156) for more information.
How much does it cost to attend?
KingsGate Youth is free of charge. Events where payment is needed will be clearly advertised. There may be occasions, when we provide food on a Friday night, where we may ask for a small contribution, but this will be highlighted in advance.
Are the leaders professionally qualified?
All of our leaders are highly valued and are provided with regular training opportunities. Although some of them may not be Youth Workers by profession, they take it just as seriously, and many have Youth Worker qualifications.
How do I contact you if I have more questions?
Phone the Church Office from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday on: 01733 311156
