Teenagers are challenged in their faith by rival activities and by the transition they need to make from a child’s faith to an adult’s. Many young people fall away at this stage and don’t allow themselves the opportunity of discovering what faith can offer


Residential Events for Teenagers (Years 7 - 9)  in 2017 are 10th -12th February, 12th - 14th May, 20th -22nd October and 8th - 10th December (Cost: £84 per person)

A weekend of faith and fun run by The Wellspring Community and Worth Abbey's Open Cloister. During the weekend the teenagers will have a chance to participate in prayer with the monastic community and enjoy being in the beautiful Sussex countryside. The programme will include talks, creative activities, games, discussion, drama, space for silence, stillness and thinking, sports, walks and a healthy dollop of competition
