Young Adults

There are lots of opportunities for service, worship, and fun times at St. Bart’s, not least with the Young Adults group! But what exactly is a young adult? What is our theme for 2022/23? The answers run together: Unsettledness. Contemporary young adulthood is defined by constant upheaval. We face changes in career, place, relationships, perspectives, and an awareness that our lives will continue to be driven by change, be it ecclesial, economic, or environmental. St. Bart’s Young Adults is a space where people can be in a state of upheaval in community. There will be several opportunities to meet this year in ways both active and contemplative.

Please feel free to invite your friends and relations!

On a previous Quiet Day:
“The talks were amazing, and the time spent in Eucharistic adoration. I went into the day feeling quite tired and came out feeling very refreshed.”

On a previous Autumn Hike:
“I greatly enjoyed the hike: I am not a parishioner, but a friend of the parish, since my home church is S. Thomas’s. I appreciated the simple structure, leaving time for fellowship, but with time set aside for worship at the centre”

“The food was amazing and I really enjoyed singing Sext at lunch.”

“I loved our hike. It was a perfect day. I signed up because I’ve wanted to do it for a while, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I enjoyed everyone’s company and appreciated the thought that went into organizing the day”

Please feel free to invite any fellow young adults who may enjoy these events!
