UNITED Youth is a weekly youth hang out run on Friday nights at Parafield Gardens Uniting Church from 7 – 9pm during the school term. It’s designed for young people who are in years 6 – 12.
The aim is to create a safe, fun environment where each young person feels welcome and wanted and has the opportunity to hear about God and His Son Jesus Christ.
Friday nights consist of exciting events, games, a message, small groups, great food and friends!
UNITED Youth also meets during the 10am church service for small group every second week. We are currently going through the Youth Alpha program which provides a space for youth to engage wherever they are at and ask any questions they might have around faith, God and church. This is a great opportunity for our young people to delve deeper into the Bible and explore their faith while building relationships with one another and doing life together.
On Thursday afternoons we invite the youth to come along to the church for our Drop In from 3pm to 5pm. This is a great time of hanging out, playing games and enjoying some snacks and drinks (including barista made coffee – $2each), much like what we do on a Friday night!
Here at UNITED Youth, we have 5 culture cues that help us create a safe and fun environment and focus on our mission.
1. Pray Always
2. Come As You Are
3. Ohana Means Family
4. Speak Life
5. Kingdom First
