Youth & Young Adults

Kia Ora!

The Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Christchurch North Parish believes that the spiritual element in a young persons life is as vital, and that having a relationship with Jesus is not just a good thing for a young person but this relationship allows them to live life to the fullest.

Our programmes and events are all aimed at journeying with youth & young adults to explore life and faith, and how the two embrace to bring them this life to the full.

Our aim is to walk side by side with our youth and young adults as we all journey closer to Jesus.

We believe that an important part of this faith and life journey is for them to be empowered to use their gifts in serving others and in leadership. We aim to engage them in the life of the Church not just in the future, but now!

We have adopted a new format of youth group celebrating the Mass as the anchor point of our youth groups, along with holding a parents session so that parents know what topics are covered at youth group. Check out the infographics below to see this new format.

Both youth groups are held at the St Bede’s College Performing Arts Centre (210 Main North Road, Papanui)

Young Adults Group

Every month we hold an event where all young adults in the parish (and wider community) are invited (18 – 35 years old).

Core Team Leaders

Our two youth groups in the North Parish are where young people come to discover the beauty of the Catholic faith in a safe, fun and social environment.

Our year 9 – 13 youth group is led by a group of young adults who volunteer their time to journey with our young people. These volunteers are known as the Core Team.
