Youth Activities 15+

We are really blessed as a parish to have great numbers of young people involved; whatever you want to do, it will either already be here or we will try and create it for you. And everyone is welcome – feel free to bring friends who are not Catholic.

For young people who reach age 15, the next step is often Confirmation.

Whether or not you are confirmed, once you are aged 16+ you are welcome to serve as a Youth Leader at Hall of Dreams and Field of Dreams. We will provide training, and this is a great way for you to develop skills in leadership and teamwork, as well as help younger children. As a bonus, volunteering hours count for Duke of Edinburgh and vInspired. You will be joining a superb team of leaders and over the year this group also has evenings out together.

During the year young people also lead some parish social evenings – these have included restaurant nights, murder mystery evenings, a Flamenco Dance evening, and Interactive Quiz Nights.

We run weekends away for young people aged 16+ and we also warmly support and encourage involvement with the Brentwood Catholic Youth Service. This includes supporting young people to travel on the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, as well as a range of activities during the year.

We are also always very open to suggestions – speak to Fr Daniel or Fr Rick and we will help make your idea a reality if we possibly can!
