Glow Youth

‘Glow Youth’ is on every Friday at 7.30pm.

At Victory Gospel Church, we believe that young people are an important and vital part of our church – so we started ‘Glow’ to provide an environment just for them to meet new young people, play games, learn all about God’s word, and more!

‘Glow’ is Victory’s youth ministry for young people aged 13-18 that happens every Friday at 7:30pm. Our aim at Glow is to love and encourage our young people about the problems and issues that they face everyday and tell them that God loves them and can help them through anything, no matter what it is.

We enjoy going through the Bible and telling them of Jesus’ everlasting love for them that never ceases – even when we mess up. Our primary purpose is to encourage our young people to live a life of passion for God and His people!

As well as that, we also believe that church should be fun! That’s why every Friday night we also crank up the music, order pizza, and pull out the; Air Hockey table, Darts Board and Slush Puppy Machine. We also love doing amazing and completely randomly themed nights like Disney night, Hawaiian night, Superhero night and many more! Why would God create life, and then make it boring!

Flourish Fit

‘Flourish Fit’ is on every Friday at 7.30pm.

‘Flourish Fit’ is an exercise group for women of all ages to be able to come together, fellowship, make friends and exercise.

10am Sunday Service
