Illuminate Youth

Illuminate Youth is the youth ministry at St Johns Owlerton. The ministry covers youth work at the church, Winn Gardens estate and other local projects through Hillsborough. If you are aged between 11-18 have a look at what we do:


Limelight is our Sunday morning meeting! If you like waffles with chocolate spread, games and learning about how we do life as followers of Jesus, this is for you. Limelight starts at 10am at St Johns, where we worship with the rest of the church family. We then all head over to the The Attic, our youth base, which is on Forbes Road behind the vicarage. We start with breakfast and teaching and then have a time of games and social till midday.Limelight is our main meeting in the week so is not one to be missed! 



Encounter is our small group for Y10 and above on a Tuesday. Our main focus at Encounter is growing deeper in our faith, by looking at what it means to be disciples. A normal encounter  meets at The Attic from 19:30 until 21:00. After a time of eating 'chippy chips' and playing some games (often uno of dobble!) we then get stuck into a series we are unpacking together.     In the past we have looked at Stewardship, Evil and Suffering along with other big topics.



Illuminate Football is our Friday night football event!
Each Friday we go up to Goodwin Sports Centre where we play against other youth groups as part of the Sheffield Christian Youth League. We have three teams Y7-9, Y9-11 and Y11-13. The season runs from September to June with an award ceremony at the end of the year. This is a great event to meet other young people in other youth groups and play some football. The fixtures for this change due to the nature of the league however the teams often play between 18:30-20:00. For me info contact Will below.
