At Roots, we do so much more than a Wednesday evening youth event, or Sunday morning gathering. Jesus calls us to live life, and to its fullest! So that’s exactly what we aim to do. Check out some of the events we attend/run over the course of the year…


What is Soul Survivor?
Soul Survivor is a one of the highlights of the youth calendar!
Each summer thousands of young people gather from across the country to worship God, learn what it means to live for Jesus in every area of their lives, pray for one another and have loads of fun!
Who can go?
Thousands of people go to Soul Survivor without any knowledge or experience of God, yet leave wanting to know more! We encourage as many people as possible to come to this week away as it changes everything! The music, the night life, food vans – there is literally something for everyone!

When is Soul Survivor?
Bookings are currently closed for next years event.
If you’re interested in coming to this event, just ask a member of the youth team for more details.


What is Gilwell Park?
Each year we take a group of young people away to Gilwell Park Scout Centre. The weekend is packed full of activities, time to relax, and learn about God.
Who can go?
In short, anyone! Whether you’re a Christian, not a Christian, or simply exploring, the weekend is a great opportunity to hang out with friends and meet with God.
When is the next weekend away?
The dates for Gilwell 2019 are TBC.
Look for details of our next weekend away in the Autumn


Each term we aim to do at least one social, whether that’s sharing a meal together at Nando’s, competing with friends at a game of bowling or heading over to Soul Survivor Watford for a Saturday Celebration and McDonald’s.
Sometimes there is a small cost to each of these events – more information will be sent to parents and young people closer to the time.
The dates of our next socials are:
14th October – Movie Night @ Holy Trinity
31st October – Recharge: A town wide youth event for 11-18’s @ St. Peter’s, Loudwater
19th December – Roots Christmas Party
