For students, on Thursdays
Common Ground: Thursdays, Grades 9 – 12
Common Ground, the CG part of #cglw, is here to help students know, and be known by, Jesus!
- View Student Missions Calendar
We meet from 7:00-9:00 PM* each Thursday from September to the end of April.
*Doors open at 6:00 PM
General Elements of the Program
Worship, talks, videos & discussions. Small groups*, prayer & giving.
*Small groups: Each student attends a small group which will consist of at least one adult leader meeting with the same group of students each week. Here we keep up to date with our students, announce upcoming events, discuss the theme of the night and pray together. Leaders are encouraged to sit and talk to students as they hang out before and/or after hours.
Common Ground House Band
This is a team of student musicians, singers, sound techs and imaging operators.
Mission Trips, Retreats, Conventions and Camps
These trips have significant value in a student’s life. We have seen exponential spiritual growth in students who take a whole weekend or week to focus on God and to be with their Christian friends. We believe these events are really important in their walk with Jesus and try to do each one of these annually.
Section Youth Rallies
These are combined youth services and times of fellowship with other youth groups in the London area. They consist of a typical youth service: worship, games, giving, fellowship, preaching and prayer time. The goal is to encourage our own students, and others across London, that they are not alone.
We switch from weekly meetings to two events and two discussion nights each month, from June to August. We join the Livewire students for events such as Christian camp services, and our annual trip to Canada’s Wonderland. This reduced schedule gives our leaders the opportunity to rest and be ready for their leadership commitment in the fall.
