Ignite at The Beacon Church

Ignite at The Beacon Church logo

Ignite is a fast paced, slightly crazy, very noisy youth group which is dedicated to creating a fun, safe and friendly space where young people in years 6-8 can feel like they belong. We believe that culture is demanding more from young people, and the pressure is on, therefore we want to provide an environment where you can come, chill out, be a bit crazy, but where you know you can be listened to, be valued and accepted, not just by us but by God too.

What we get up to?

Each Thursday is a slightly different set up to keep things different and us all on our toes. However, as we have a full sized sports hall there is always a sport in there, whether is it football, basket ball, hockey or a game we've made up you will be able to use a lot of your energy up in there! In the coffee bar area, we have pool, table tennis, board games and card games, a craft, as well as space for you to just sit, chill out and catch up with your friends. We (nearly) always have small group chats as part of the evening, giving you the space to chat about the stuff that's important to you, for you to be heard,  understood and for you to know that you are great, and it's not just us that thinks it, God does too!
