Hello. We’re Mark and Sarah Carter and we have been leading young adult & student ministry since 2009, launching the Established 1825 congregation in 2012. We desire to see young adults succeed in their workplaces, families, relationships and studies, and that’s why we do what we do.
We tailor our messages specifically to address issues surrounding young adults and equipping them to do life well, being an example to all believers in speech, conduct, love and purity (1 Timothy 4:12). We call ourselves “Established 1825” as we believe 18-25 are the years where individuals establish their lives in God and define themselves as independent adults.
If you’re a young adult (aged 18+) you are so welcome to come along to our meetings on Sunday evenings. We are very friendly and will encourage you to stay after the meeting for a cuppa so you can get to know us.
We typically meet at the Empower Centre, but sometimes we mix things up for socials or road trips - so it’s good to keep an eye on our Facebook Page, or the Family Church app, to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time!
As well as our Sunday evening meetings we occasionally run seminars to address specific topics like dating and creation science, we also have a couple of Connect Groups mostly revolving around food, and we connect with the CU to make sure we’re reaching students at Portsmouth University.
