FUSION is the Youth Ministry based at St. John’s Church, Dukinfield.
At FUSION we aim to transform lives and communities by bringing young people into a living and growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through meeting together on a Monday night (during term time) at St. John’s Church Centre to build relationships and learn more about God in a relevant and exciting way.
For those in Year 10 and above we also run FUSION CONNECT, a small group based at Ben and Hannah’s house which meet every other Wednesday.
We also hold socials and other special events throughout the year (for more details see our Socials page).
For those who come to church on a Sunday morning there is also ROCK SOLID which runs parallel to the 10:15 service and is aimed at 11-16 year olds. We have breakfast together and you can find out more about this on our Sunday Breakfast page. Anyone over 16 is encouraged to stay in our lively and welcoming service and hear practical messages about real life issues.
