St John's hosts a joint youth group, with leaders and high school kids from St John's, St Thomas' Moonee Ponds and St Augustine's Moreland.
It runs Fridays nights during term, 6:30-8:30pm, and welcomes all kids from Grade 6 to Year 12 (also Grade 5 kids in Term 4 - download Grade 5 invite 2012).
The youth group is a Christian youth group where the Bible is taught and following Jesus is encouraged. However, anyone is welcome to come and explore Christianity even if this is not the religion that they believe in.
There are a number of different elements that take place on any given youth group night. Firstly, we share a meal together. This meal is provided by generous people from the churches represented. After dinner we play a mixer game, allow an opportunity for the youth to share about what God has been doing in their week, have a time of singing and Bible teaching, followed by prayer and supper. This format is followed each week apart from one social night a term, two nights that focus on an aspect of culture from a Christian perspective
and one night that equips the youth to a Christian in their daily lives.
Come along and check it out, or call the office to find out more. The first time you come, you'll need to bring a medical form. We'll give you a Bible on your first week.
