Verve is a group for 11 to 18 year olds that want a place to hang out together, have a laugh doing all kinds of activities and talk about the big issues of life.

We have loads of things to do, from big team games in the hall to pool, or if you prefer, just chilling out on the bean bags! There is a chance to ask questions about God, look at life's big questions, or listen to a guest speaker.


Verve runs from 7.30 to 9.30pm on Fridays in the youth room behind the main church building at 129 Alder Rd (BH12 4AA).


On Sunday mornings we get together regularly during the service at Alder Rd for Bible study and teaching relevant to the stage and age of your life.

Youth Events

Other youth events at Gateway include socials where we may go bowling, grab a bite to eat, go to splashdown, or go to a local gig. We also have a weekend away each year as well as our annual trip to Newday, a national youth festival, full of great worship, teaching, cafes, and sports.
