School Years 10-13


Revolution is a time where Authentic small groups come together for a chance to chill out, eat cake, play games and spend time together in worship, prayer and hearing some brilliant talks.  It runs on the 1st Tuesday of the month at St John’s from 7.30-9.30pm.


Authentic meets at 5.15pm in the Upper Room at St John’s most Sundays during term time. We drink tea and coffee and eat biscuits alongside exploring Scripture and seeking to apply it to our lives. Many of go straight down to the 6.30pm service together.

Small Groups

Each school year has its own cell group, which runs mid-week during term time. These give space to explore Jesus, share life and eat food! Please e-mail our Youth Pastor Mark Watson for more information (  Click to download a consent form (required for every member of Authentic)

Trips Away

In the Easter term Authentic have their own weekend away as well as going to Soul Survivor every summer. These are brilliant opportunities to laugh lots, have fun, build memories and delve deeper into God as we hear from guest speakers and spend time in worship and prayer. They are always a highlight of the year!


We aim to do something regularly to love our community and express God’s heart for all people.  This could be anything from litter picks in the local area and gardening for people who are unable to do it themselves; to raising money for different charities and people.
