Youth Work

It is vital to have a church that will teach your children to be model followers of Jesus from an early age. We aim to lead children into a living faith in Jesus Christ and embed them into a body of believers, while equip them to live lives that honour Christ in a society that doesn’t.

Youth work at Carey Baptist reveals God to young people and equips them a deeper knowledge of the things of God. They grow to enjoy being with other Believers of the Christian Faith and to experience God’s work in various aspects of their lives.

We really value young people and their families and over the years, we’ve sought to:

Reward attendance and participation with gifts of books at the end of a yearly cycle.

Sunday School

We believe the city of Preston can be an amazing place for children to grow up in, providing richness in diversity, culture, and opportunities for people of all social backgrounds. 

On Sundays, our team of committed leaders run activities for various age groups. These activities include worship, multi-media presentations, small group discussions and age-appropriate Bible teaching. These groups operate during sermon, after the children and youth have been part of the service prior to the sermon.

We run three Sunday School classes each week for different age groups and have a crèche for the very youngest. We follow Scripture Union materials in these lessons.

Messy Church

We also run Messy Church once a month at Carey. This isn’t strictly a children’s or youth activity because it is for the whole family. For more details click the Messy Church button on the main menu.

Day Nursery

At Carey we also run a full time OFSTED registered day nursery. You can click the logo opposite to go directly to their own website, or click on the Carey Childcare button on the menu to find out more on this site.

Child Protection

For your peace of mind, Carey Baptist Church follows a Child Protection Policy in the appointment of all children and youth-workers.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

Remember   your   Creator   in   the   days   of   your   youth,   before   the   days   of   trouble   come   and   the   years   approach   when   you   will   say,   “I   find   no   pleasure   in   them”

Ecclesiastes   12:1
