What Do You Do At Youth Group?
Anyone in Grades Four through Twelve can come to Duncan United Church youth group. This group is led by Sarah Prestwich and Casey Jones.
We play games together, have a snack and talk about things that are important to us. Some of our favourite activities are:
- games, games, games! Like Wavey, Wavey and Sardines!
- going swimming and bowling
- learning about different faiths and current issues
- helping with church events like pancake breakfasts, garage sales and Harvest Fair
- going to Camp Pringle
- Celebrating the Holidays at the BC Forest Discovery Centre
If you would like to join us at youth group, please fill out both pages of the registration form and bring it to a youth group meeting. We meet most Friday and some Sunday nights from 6 to 8:30 pm, so check out our Calendar of Events for what we’re up to.
Every year, usually in the Spring, young people in Grade 7 and up are invited to join our minister for our Youth Confirmation program. During these sessions, you will explore your faith and what it means to belong to the United Church. At the end of this special time together, if you choose, you will be welcomed as a full member of Duncan United Church and the United Church of Canada.
