  1. Year 8’s – High School Programmes in 2021

Even though we’ll be sad to see the Year 8’s leave our Intermediates Programme, it’s not the end, because we run programmes for High Schooler’s too!  Our teenage youth club, similar to Rock Solid, is called Surge, and runs on Friday nights from 7pm – 9pm.  It is full of ex-Rock Solid’ers, and they have their own crew of cool leaders. Click HERE to see what Surge did this term.  All Clubs will be starting the week of 15th February 2021.  Grace Church also runs a Youth Group each Wednesday from 7-9pm for High Schoolers, called GVY Beach. There is no cost for this and everyone is welcome regardless of your beliefs.  There are also teen camps, such as the Surge Summer Camp, Eastercamp and other events just for teens. Come along and bring your new high school mates too.
