YouthLIFE PRograms for Friday 16th October:
YouthLIFE meets at our Quakers Hill Campus every Friday night during state school terms.
Our program runs 7:00-9:00, for all High School Students, along with year 6's in terms 3 and 4.
Our Quakers Hill site is open from 3:30 for youth to arrive! This means youth can come directly from school, if it helps with transport, or just to get more YouthLIFE into the day.
During YouthLIFE ARVOs we run a massive JustDance screen. We also have a variety of games set up, along with quite spaces with power and WiFi for homework/study.
Since those who come early will get hungry we provide dinner and a drink for $5, starting at 6pm.
A TYPICAL NIGHT AT YOUTHLIFE
Our official program kicks off at 7:00pm so it’s good to get here a bit before that to register and meet some of the leaders and youth so that you’ll have a great night.
At 7:00 we head into the auditorium and get started!
Some of the regular elements of our night include:
- Worship - we love making and singing songs about how great Jesus is.
- Games - God has made a fun world, and we want to enjoy it together and grow in our friendships.
- Preaching - God's Word the Bible is wonderful and powerful, and we open it every week to see what God has to say to us.
- Group Time - We break down into small groups with other youth our own age to talk about our faith and our lives.
- Supper - we spend some free time together, eating, playing basketball and growing our friendships.
Each week is a bit different, but those are some of the things you can look forward to.
OUR YOUTH TEAM
Joining Josh on the Youth executive are Nicola Hawtrey who oversees the Celebrating Vision Area, and Amy Jackson who oversees the Connecting Vision Area.
The rest of our team consists of wonderful volunteers of all ages. Many of our team have years of experience and training in running youth programs, and every single leader has current WWCC clearance, Safe Ministry Training and is Accredited by the Anglican Church for work with children. They all think life with Jesus is the best and are keen for you to have it too.
We would love to have you visit our program one night drop in or contact us if you have any more questions
One of the most valuable parts of YouthLIFE is our YouthLIFE Groups. These are small groups which meet during the week – similar in many ways to adult Life Groups. These groups are a great opportunity to connect at greater depth – with one another and with God. Time is spent sharing life and fun, praying for one another and learning more about God from the Bible. Contact us if you would like more information about which groups are currently available.
YouthCHURCH runs for years 6-8 during our Family Worship Services. Youth begin the service in the main auditorium and then leave at an announced point in the program. The program involves Bible teaching, prayer and activities.
As COVID-19 restrictions change week to week, we want to be able to change as well, so that we can continue to love Jesus and each other well, and grow in our trust of him.
We are committed to making sure YouthLIFE happens every week during term.
That means that our LIVE program will also be augmented with an ONLINE program on many weeks, and there may be some weeks where only the ONLINE program is available. Please check the indicators above regularly to confirm which programs are available on a given week.
Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking God to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your faith. May God our Father and our Lord Jesus bring us to you very soon. And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows.
1 Thessalonians 3:11-12
Here are the answers to some FAQ to help us see each other again. Feel free to contact Josh with any other questions you have.
