Shirley Baptist Church is passionate about supporting young people as they grow and mature into young adults. No matter where a young person is in their relationship with God, we feel it is important that they have a space where they can ask questions, be accepted and learn more about who they are.


SBCYouth wants to grow a generation of young people who are confident in the knowledge of God’s love and who are passionate about seeing His Kingdom come.


So, if you’re in year 7+ and you’re searching for something to get involved with then you’ve stumbled across the right place.


SBCYouth has youth clubs, Bible study groups, brigades, socials… and so much more!
