Youth Unite this Friday (May 11)

G’day Parents, I’ve written about Youth Unite already on this blog so this is really just a reminder. We’ve got a number of youth ready to help us out before, during and after the event which is great but there is always room for more. If you can help out in some capacity, please indicate that with the RSVP form below. Kirk

Youth Unite Tonight + Life Groups and Trivia

G’day Parents, I’ve posted about Youth Unite before but it’s on tonight so thought I’d mention it one last time. Life Groups.

Just let us know you’re keen and we’ll see what we can do. Trivia! At 5pm on Sundays (school and public holidays excluded)…

Life Groups Update

G’day parents, This Thursday night we will meet as a leadership team and lock in the life group allocations for this year. Soon after that you will hear from group leaders about your kid/s’ first group meeting and related details. As always, there were no times/locations that perfectly suit everyone. None-the-less we have done our best to run groups at times where the most possible people can attend every week. We are keen to work with families to make the…

Youth Unite – Feb 24

G’day Parents, Three times a year we meet up with other youth ministries in the Northern Suburbs for an all-in event called Youth Unite. I’m increasingly appreciating these nights the longer I am a part of St. John’s.
