Youth Ministries


Edenderry CE meets every Saturday Night and is for anybody from Year 12 who has been a Christian for a while, is new to following Jesus or just wants some fellowship. Every night there is a time of praise, teaching from the Bible and an update on our friends who live here in Ireland and across the world. If you would like to know more about CE or how to find us on social media, click below.


The Boys Brigade has existed in Edenderry for over 60 years, discipling boys from ages 4 – 18. Every night there is a devotional led by one of our leaders before splitting off into separate groups for Badge Classes, followed by dodgeball, basketball, volleyball, football – to name but a few!

‘Sure and Steadfast’


At First Portadown, we have 3 sections available for girls up to age 14.

Rainbows is the youngest section of Girlguides, for girls in years P1 – P3. It is a fun, friendly place for girls to have fun, play games, make crafts and learn about an amazing God who loves each and every one of them.

Brownies is for girls aged P4 – P6. Most evenings there are fun competitions, games and quizzes and a lesson from the Bible that the girls can think and talk about with their friends and the leaders.

Guides is for girls in P7 – Y10. Every week we have great games, fun activities – and of course, the odd trip away. As well as our chilled time, we come together to study the Bible and think a bit deeper about how it impacts our lives.

If you would like to see more about what we get up to in all of our guides sections or get in touch with a leader, you can do it through our Facebook page.


YF – AM meets every Sunday Morning at 10am in the Youth Room and is for Y8 – University.

Every week, a guest speaker will share with us from the Bible before we split into groups and chat about what this means; a great chance to dig deeper in to the passage and learn with your friends, thinking of how it applies to your life.

And of course, it wouldn’t be YF-AM with a plethora of goodies, coffee and games, but our main goal will always be to grow in love and knowledge of Jesus and what he has done for us.


YF – PM is for anybody from Y8 – Y14.

YF is a relaxed and welcoming place that seeks  to encourage and equip young adults in Edenderry to live out their faith. We do this by studying a series which is either topical or from a book of the Bible. and together, see how the Bible is applicable to all people from all areas of life. Throughout the year we go on trips such as Ice-Skating, to Ulster Rugby and our YF Weekend. A night at YF would not be complete without a sugar-filled and coffee-fueled supper along with some games and a time to catch up at the start of a new week.

Come and join us as we open God’s word together and learn more about His love showed to us by Jesus.
