Ministry for our highshcool aged young people
Our heart and vision is to see young people come fully alive in Christ.
We believe young people can make a positive difference in the world now. So we’re passionate about seeing them come alive in Christ to live His way. At Restore we not only have a great Youth ministry but encourage young people to be an active member, serving part of the broader church as well. They are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today and we value and nurture the contribution they can make now.
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Our weekly youth gathering is for any high school aged young person. We want this time to be fun and welcoming. Where anyone from any background can come along, have a great time, and just be themselves.
5:30pm - 6:30pm
This group is aimed at those who specifically want to know more about Jesus. A 'disciple' is quite simply a learner. So, in short, that is what this time is for. Learning more about who Jesus was, how he lived, and what he wants to do in us today.
Another aim of this group will be giving opportunities for young people to help run the Youth Gathering. We believe that your teenagers have so much potential and leadership capacity already! We want to help unlock that as best as we can.
Whether it's leading a game, helping at the sound & lighting desk, sharing an encouraging message, or running the canteen, we want to see young people step up and take on responsibility.
Share the Love
impacting our world
We want to make this ministry about more than just us. So at least once a term we are practically loving people locally or globally. We call this "Share the Love". We spent the arvo with the homeless in Sydney and gave out handmade care packages. In September we collectively raised over $2000 to give people in Zimbabwe access to safe drinking water. Just this last term we created a “Random Acts of Kindness Day” and we blessed over 300 people in our local community in one afternoon.
Young people of this generation often get a bad wrap, but we have seen that they are passionate and super quick to jump at an opportunity to help those in need.
