Since 2015, we have been working alongside other churches and organisations already active in the area. There is currently little provision for the secondary age young people, and we have already been working in St Machar Academy, and other activities. Some of the youth worker’s activities are:

Befriending: meeting regularly with one or two young doing activities such as bowling, pool, eating, and going to the Aberdeen games. Providing a spiritual and emotional support in their daily lives.

School Pastors. Providing broader support with Riverbank Primary P7, and St Machar Academy first years. The school pastor lunch club is still as packed out as ever.

The Riverbank football team. Building up positive values through sport. One young lad we have been working with for years, a previous member of the football team, came in as a coach and has been tremendous. He is also involved with the Lighthouse Bible study alongside one of the leaders, and the change in his life has been amazing - he is even encouraging fellow pupils from St Machar Academy, which can be daunting to go along to prayer meetings and Bible groups run through the Lighthouse.

The SU group in Riverbank Primary. Fun crafts and games and also a God slot where we will share the Bible.
