Our youth are the heartbeat of JD Church and we are passionate about seeing them become visible in the church and in their everyday lives!

Emerge is a Christian youth group for 11–17 year olds, but it is more than that, it is a family where every individual feels loved and accepted. Your young person will experience fun, energy and excitement when they come along. They’ll find their true identity and who they were made to be.

Emerge on Fridays

All 11-17 year-olds are welcome to join us on Friday nights during term time from 7-9 pm at JD Church. You can expect fun games, upbeat worship music, relevant talks and so much more!

Emerge on Sundays

We also meet every Sunday during the church service. Emerge stay as part of the main church for the worship, but during the preach, we head up to the youth space and have our own time aimed specifically towards young people! We’d love to see you on a Sunday morning from 10:15 am!

Emerging Leaders

Our brand new leadership training programme for year 13 students!
