Our Youth

Hi from the youth group

Hi from the youth group

The Parishes of English Martyrs, Didcot and St John’s, Wallingford have a thriving joint Youth Group which was set up by Phyllis Green in 2007 to encourage and inspire young members of both Parishes over the age of 10 to take an active interest in their Church.

The team of youth leaders are all CRB checked and plan and run monthly activities with the help of the youth group members’ input. These are generally run at St John’s, Wallingford on the fourth Friday of the month between 7pm and 9pm. Previous activities have included:

  • First aid course
  • Glass etching and craft
  • A visit from a Police Community Support Officer to talk about policing in the community
  • Pizza, bowling and quiz night
  • A visit from a team at Didcot Baptist Church who gave a talk on a building project in South America
  • Murder mystery night
  • Treasure hunt
  • Weekend away with families in 2008 at the Celebrate Conference in Bristol
  • Silly games evening

Refreshments are provided most evenings and the latest Sunday Gospel readings are discussed and prayers said.


For information about the youth group please contact Phyllis Green or Andy Robins

We are always looking for volunteers to act as ‘welcomers’ before Mass. This simply entails greeting people as they enter the church, and handing out hymn-books. If you think you could help, please contact Camilla King via the parish office.
