THE BASICS East Hills Youth runs on Friday nights during school terms from 7:00-8:30pm, and is for anyone in Years 6-12! It’s $3 per night, but your first time is free. THE NIGHTS On Fridays we have fun games and activities, hangout time, great food, a short talk and time to pray together. Each term has an exciting program with different themed nights, and we dig into a range of relevant topics. We also occasionally have nights out and go to some cool places. It’s a safe, welcoming place to make friends, have an awesome time and explore the big questions of life! WHY? We have a heart for the young people in East Hills and surrounding areas. We believe that all of us have been created uniquely by God for a reason, and that “life to the full” (John 10:10) can be only be fully discovered through knowing Jesus!
THE BASICS In addition to meeting on Friday nights, we also run a program during our church service on Sundays for Years 6-10, from 9:30 till about 11am (in school terms). We start off in the service for the opening worship and announcements, and then go out to our newly furnished Youth Room. THE PROGRAM At Sunday Youth we spend time hanging out, playing games and going through a bible study that explores relevant topics through discussion, videos and worksheets. At the end we pray together as well. In Term 1 and Term 2 we’ll be using the Alpha Youth Series, which looks at the basics of Christianity in a fun and engaging way! Some Sundays we’ll also hang out after the service and do extra things to keep building up our community!
We believe that Young Adults, those in the life stage between leaving high school and into their 30’s, are a vital part of a growing, healthy church. Young Adults at East Hills currently meet informally to hang out and participate in Growth Groups with other members of the church. Eventually we hope to form a more regular Young Adults ministry, including a specific Growth Group for them. Additionally, we have the goal of starting a Sunday night church service in the future which will be more relaxed, contemporary and designed for this age group.
