Youth Ministry

Welcome to the Vine!

It’s great you’re here! The Vine is a group for high schoolers where we aim to make new friends, deepen old friendships, have lots of fun and together work out what life’s about, as Jesus tell it.
Our programs run on Friday nights and Sundays in the term time. Have a look below for things that are going on at the moment, check instagram send Josh Lewis an email for more information at josh.lewis@standys.org.au.

Vine almost back for 2020!

We are starting back on Friday the 31st of January for Vine Fridays, and Sunday the 2nd of February for Vine Sundays.

 

Vine Fridays (years 7 and up) – 6:30 – 8:30 pm

On Fridays, the Vine (for high schoolers) meets together at the church. On a regular night, we’ll have a simple dinner together at the start of the night, we have a section of ‘All In’ time with everyone and then break off into small groups. Each of these groups has a key leader, and meeting separately will allow them to do tailored activities and Bible studies, grow stronger relationships in the small group, and provide an easy place to invite friends.
A couple of times a term, we do different nights, where we’re offsite, or where we stay as a large group for the whole night. We’ll give you further details about that as we go. In term 1, we’ll be looking at Romans.

Vine Sundays (years 6-9)

On Sundays, at the same time as morning church, the Vine (years 6-9) meets at Prouille Primary School (across the road from church). This is like a church service for youth – we pray, sing and hear a Bible talk and have morning tea together. During the school holidays, Viners are encouraged to stay in church with the adults. 


Friday afternoons for Year 6

 
1 group for Year 6 boys + 1 group for Year 6 girls = Club 66.
Food, activities, friends and learning about God.
 

Camps

STAMPEDE (St Andrew’s Youth Camp for high schoolers + year 6) – during the spring school holidays. This year we had a great time up at Lake Macquarie, looking at the topic of what it means to be a human being, made in God’s image.

KYCK (Katoomba Youth Convention for high schoolers). We’re going to KYCK in 2020 on the 24th-26th of April. More details to come!
