Young People

GOBS (11-14)
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1 v 9.
Our GOBS (Gideons at Olton Baptist) group is aimed at those just joining secondary school, and enables our young people to question and walk through being a Christian together. Challenging, high energy and quite frequently messy, this group is great fun to be involved in. With a mix of social events and topical discussions, this is a very rewarding group of young people to be with.

YOBs (14-18)
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.’ 1 Timothy 4:12
Our YOBs (Youth at Olton Baptist) is a group for young people to think seriously and be challenged by all aspects of Christianity, wherever they are on their spiritual journey.   They meet regularly on a Sunday night at The Branch as well as for Deeper or Shallower on a Wednesday night where faith is explored further.   A varied programme of socials, discussions and silliness (with the odd residential thrown in) brings together a fantastic bunch of young people with fun had by all!
