Venture is MCC’s youth group for 12-17 year olds that meets on Friday evenings on the first floor in Manor Mills. It runs from 7-9pm.

Typically, a Venture night begins with some games, snacks and a chance to catch up with everybody. One of our leaders, or a visiting speaker, then opens up a discussion on an aspect of Jesus teaching and we share our ideas and understandings with one another. We then finish off with some more chill time and snacks.

As well as our weekly get togethers, we also have social nights out, which include such things as bowling, cinema trips, ice-cream nights and murder mysteries.

During the year we participate in our local Presbytery Youth events that allow us to meet up with other youth groups in our wider area.

Each October we then head off to the Presbyterian Church’s MAD (Making a Difference) Youth weekend in Coleraine University where almost a 1000 teenagers gather from all around Ireland. It’s a full on few days but a brilliant event and is probably the highlight of our annual programme.

If you’d like any further information or to get involved with our team please email us at or text Cherise on 087 1844691.

We’d love to have you along!

MAD Weekend

“Come to me,all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Venture online pumpkin carving night!

Load 'em up! Venture wasn't able to have its usually in-person fun this year, but that didn't stop the group having a great time! Venture leaders piled on the pumpkins and delivered every kid a pumpkin, along with a small card and goodie bag. A reverse trick or trick!...

Venture Christmas Party

Our last Venture activity for the year was our annual Christmas Party. From gingerbread house decorating competitions to white elephant present scrambles, the night was a fun final hurrah before the break. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Venture Christmas party...
