Hello and welcome to Saints Youth. We’re a growing community of young people wanting to passionately follow Jesus, share our lives with each other, invite others in and build the kingdom of God together. We aim to have tons of fun in the process.
We believe that church is better with friends and we’re on a mission to be a warm and welcoming community. We want all young people to have a space where they can explore faith, meet Jesus, thrash out all their questions, be heard, make friends and know their absolute worth. When we gather, we make time to hang out and play, we read the Bible together, we try to provoke genuine and meaningful discussion, we listen, we pray and we worship. All young people are welcome – whether their families worship at our church or not.
Saints Youth meet as two groups, older youth and younger youth, on Thursday evenings and on Sundays. Youngers is currently school year 7-8 and olders is year 9 and up. See below for more information on the format of our gatherings. We hope you can join us.
