Wintonbury Youth (WY) is all about helping students follow Jesus together...wherever He leads. Open to all 7th - 12th grade students, our youth group aims to create genuine community where individuals love, care for, and encourage one another in Christ, while sharing His love with the world.

The Hartford Project Summer 2019
July 14 - 18
The Hartford Project (THP) is an urban ministry immersion experience for teenagers in New England. During THP, church youth groups are invited to come and spend the week in Hartford, where they will serve the community, learn about poverty, experience racial reconciliation, and build relationships with the wider body of Christ. This year, Wintonbury is participating in Week 2 of THP. Register by April 21 to secure your spot and save money!
WINTONBURY YOUTH SCHOOL-YEAR
From September to June, students in 7th-12th grade meet on Sunday nights at Wintonbury. Every week, students have time to hang out and connect with one another in community. Our weekly focus will vary between the three formats listed below. Contact Brian or Michele to be added to our email list.
Bible Study Nights
Students and leaders will dig into God's word together. The night will include the study of one or more Bible passages, group discussion that includes how to apply Biblical truths to life, and prayer.
Social Issue Discussion Nights
Guest speakers will address current social issues, allowing students the opportunity to consider each topic through the lens of God's word. There will be time for questions, answers and honest discussion.
Could be (just about) anything as long as it's fun. Some things we have planned this year include aurvivor games, a movie night, and our annual Christmas parties.
The Hartford Project FallServe
The Hartford Project (THP) is an urban ministry immersion experience for teenagers in New England.
