SBYG on Friday Nights

Each Friday night during the term our youth groups get together for a feed, some good times, deep and meaningful conversations and some good ol' fashioned he karakia e te pō. 

We run two youth programs every Friday.

Both groups share supper together from 7:30-8

It's an incredible weekend away with 3500 other youth, featuring amazing worship with the Satellite band, world-class guest speakers, hilarious big top games and tons of free time to hang with your youth mates and make new ones.

SBYG on Sunday Mornings

On Sundays during our 10 am 'Lifestreams' we have 'The Revs' – a great chance for young people to get together and dig deeper into the Bible and ask the hard questions. Open to all young people between school years 7-11.

Feel free to drop by or, for further information, contact our Younger Persons Worker Phil on 022 032 3663 or

Leadership Development

 At SBYG we believe young people are awesome and we want to see them flourish to the best of their God given ability! Part of seeing young people flourish is encouraging, equipping, and investing in those who show particular leadership potential.

Currently we have three young people who are involved with 'The Kiln,' a leadership development initiative hosted by the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch. For the past three years we have taken a small group of young people to 'The Abbey' which is a conference hosted by te Hahi Mihinare ki Aotearoa ki Niu Tireni, ki Nga Moutere o te Moana Nui a Kiwa. We also invest heavily in mentoring and run two leadership development retreats a year for our youth leadership team and young leaders. On top of all this we occasionally seek out additional opportunities for our young people to gain further valuable leadership formation and experience.
