Hi! I’m Matt Luscombe, the Youth Pastor here at Christ Church Northcourt Road & Long Furlong. We’ve heard all of the excuses for teenagers not wanting to get plugged into a youth ministry. It’s boring….I won’t know anyone….all the people who go to church are nerds. We’re ready for all of those excuses.

The youth team have designed a youth ministry where you’ll not only have fun & meet loads of great people, but it’s also a place where you can grow in character and spiritual maturity through learning about God’s word and being changed by God’s Holy Spirit.

Just give us a call or drop us an e-mail if you want to find out more! You can contact me on or 01235 539172 (our office - ask for Matt Luscombe).

For more information about the different groups we run, click on this link.  This will take you to our parent church website and the youth pages.

In addition to our regular weekly groups and socials we….

  • Go on a youth Weekend Away at the Pioneer Centre in Kidderminster in the Autumn term, which is always a highlight of the year.
  • Go to the New Wine Bible Week in Somerset during the summer holidays 
  • Are part of Desire…… which is the network of Christian youth groups and youth leaders across the Abingdon area. As a network we are actively involved in many of the local secondary schools, and we also run outreach events through the year.
