YouthLIFE during COVID - don't do isolation alone!

NSW lockdown restrictions we can't meet together for our usual YouthLIFE program 🙁 

But don't despair, we are still kicking off Term 3 learning about God, building friendships and having a whole heap of fun - we'll just be online instead.

What does that look like?

YouthLIFE ONLINE will include the same things we do in person at youth, but we will do them in Zoom... and we'll change the way we do them, so that they work best in that format.

There'll be time for youth to debrief their weeks, talk with each other and their leaders and pray for each other.

We'll be reading the Bible and learning from the book of Exodus.

We'll play some online games together.

And we'll organise a bunch of other special activities along the way too.

The Zoom Room will open at 6:50, and the program will run from 7:00-9:00 (with toilet/supper/food/drinks breaks mixed in).

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN US?

We are keen to keep all of our Youth safe online, so we don't share the registration and Zoom links on our website. Hit the button below though, it will take you to our registration portal. There are 2 forms to fill, one for YouthLIFE generally, the second for attending ONLINE. It takes about 5 minutes, and requires some information about the Youth attending, and permission from their parent/guardian. Once that is approved, we'll send you the link to join us 🙂

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.

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.

YouthLIFE ARVOs

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.
