God Is For Today

GIFT, which stands for 'God is For Today' (a name chosen by the youngsters themselves) is the Stourdene Benefice Youth Group.


It meets every fortnight on a Thursday evening during term time from 7pm-8.30pm in Ettington Church.

The aim isn't to force religion onto the children but rather to give them a safe and fun environment in which to express themselves and explore their faith.

GIFT is open to young people from Year 6 -16 years. 

The youngsters are supplied with free refreshments but there is also a Tuck Shop available which the youth are responsible for running.

As well as drama, games, quizzes, arts & craft activities and general discussion, we also fundraise within the Stourdene Benefice.

If you think your son/daughter would like to come along and see what happens at youth group then do contact one of the leaders who will be happy to organise this.
