Rooted is the St Michael’s, Chester Square youth group. We are a group of 13-18 year olds (school years 9-13) who meet on a Sunday morning to hang out and discover more of the incredible truth of the gospel. We welcome all people of all faith backgrounds and are always excited for new people to join the group.

During term-time we meet every Sunday during the morning service (10.30-11.45) in the Upper Room at St Mikes. We catch up, hear a short talk from one of our leaders about a passage from termly series, study the bible together and pray with each other. Our recent series have included Confirmation Classes, the Wisdom books, the Letter to the Philippians and Marks gospel. This term our series is called ‘The Jesus Profile’ and we are looking at Jesus from lots of different angles. Our bible studies are full of honest discussion and we don’t believe there is any such thing as a silly question.

Once a month we have a special Rooted session where we have an extended time to hang out over coffee/cake/brunch, recap our last few bible studies, and hear a testimony from someone in the wider church congregation. We also have special events outside of Sunday mornings. This term we will be attending a Soul Survivor Saturday Celebration, hanging out at Winter Wonderland, and holding our annual Rooted Christmas dinner. Over the past few months we’ve also had a mini golf and pizza social; attended Soul Survivor Summer Camp; and gone for some incredible milkshakes as a group. Our special events give us a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and deepen friendships.

Our group consists of youth from all different types of school, family and Christian background. We also have four leaders who are always keen to hear how we are doing and to talk about any questions we have about God, the Bible or anything else. Wherever you are at and whatever you think about the claims of Christianity, we would love to meet you and share our Sunday mornings with you.
