Youth Faith Collective
Youth Faith Collective (YFC) is our weekly youth group on Wednesday nights, during term time, at St Paul’s Church for young people aged school years 6-13.
It’s a great place for young people to hang out, build strong and meaningful relationships, and think about their faith journey. There is a range of games, crafts, cooking, team building, as well as lively and relevant exploration of faith and life issues and choices in a safe environment that’s welcoming to everyone. There’s usually an outing once a term too.
We also offer one-to-one sessions with individuals who want to continue discussions, developing their personal growth, faith and future life choices.

Sunday Youth Church
Youth church is the place to be on Sunday mornings! It meets during the 9.30 service at St Saviour’s and the 11.15 service at St Paul’s, usually on the second, third and fourth Sunday of each month. Aimed at secondary school children up to School Year 9, it provides a fun, safe and loving environment through which we hope to ignite their passion for Jesus. With games, worship and teaching, we help children learn about God’s love and grace, reflect on it in their own lives, and grow in faith.
Summer Youth Camps
Each summer we try to take our young people away to a summer camp. We recently went to Luminosity which is run by New Wine.
West Runton Holidays
Young people go on a West Runton Holiday to have fun and learn away from home in a community of Christians. Herne Hill Parish discovered West Runton “camps” in the 1990s.
Many families have seen children grow in faith and friendships through West Runton – including at least 2 ordinations and 2 marriages. Some of our favourite worship songs were introduced by young people bringing them back from “camp”. Families can help each other with transport and Herne Hill children have benefited from confidential help with cost when necessary.
Milkwood Summer Programme
Milkwood Summer Programme is a fun packed two-week event in our local community for children and young people aged 6-16 in the Milkwood Community Park. In 2023 this will be from the 21st August to the 1st September.
Each week is filled with outdoor multi-sports, arts & crafts, games & puzzles & a double decker gam console bus. Also during the programme we also take young people aged 11+ on a range of trips (including GoApe, trampolining, bike riding and gokarting).
The Five – an informal evening service every week. On arrival, there’s pizza and drinks available. Then, after some singing, the sermon begins and usually involves a time to talk through things together. There is then some more worship and a chance to receive prayer.
