Five youth cell groups involve around forty young people. These are peer-led and meet in homes, with an adult mentor present for consultation. Groups meet weekly with three of the cells joining together once each month for a social time before dividing into their groups. Study material for the groups is prepared by church members to meet the particular needs of the groups.
