We are an awesome bunch of young people from Hornby, West Melton and Rolleston that collectively make up Hope Youth! We are made up of a bunch of different youth communities that cater for young people from intermediate to high school age. We believe in building community and fostering a sense of belonging in our groups. We have youth workers committed to journeying along with you, no matter where you’re at! If you want to have fun, make friends and begin an awesome journey that starts with getting know an incredible God then you need to check us out!
Intermediates (Year 7-8)
If you’re intermediate aged you are welcome to join our bible-based programs on a Sunday morning at Hornby and Rolleston. We usually hang out with the adults for the start of the main service, then head off and do our own thing after the first few songs! We also run some fantastic Intermediate aged groups during the week: Energisers Hornby (fortnightly Fridays, 7.00pm-9.00pm at Hope YouthB@se – approx entrance 29b Tower Street), Energisers Templeton (fortnightly Fridays, 7pm-9.00pm at Templeton Community Centre), Flame (Year 7 – 8s, pm-9.00pm fortnightly Friday Rolleston Community Hall) and RAMP (Year 7-13s, Friday nights at West Melton) as well as some awesome events throughout the year! Some of our programmes do require you to pre-register so make sure you check out our calendar for information so you don’t miss out!
High School (Year 9-13)
It’s not easy being a teenager! At Hope, we have groups that cater to the different stages of the journey – to us it doesn’t matter if you’ve been a Christ-follower for all your life or if you’re just looking for some where to connect with people and belong to. We believe in good fun, good food and learning more about how our faith can impact our every day lives. We’d love for you to come a find out what we’re about.
Emerge meets on a Tuesday night at Hornby from 7pm and caters for Year 9-13s, Green Zone (West Melton) meets at 4.30pm at West Melton on a Tuesday, come along and find out more about what God has to say to you. If you’re into fun and activities, get along to RAMP (Year 7-13s) at West Melton from 7pm-9.00pm or Fuse (Year 9-13s) at Rolleston Community Hall fortnightly on a Friday. Orange (Year 9 – 13) meets fortnightly on Wednesday out at Rolleston and is a small group where the hard questions can be asked.
Camps, Events and Other Fun Things
We are all about doing the life together and celebrating the good times. Throughout the year there are opportunities for young people to get involved in having fun! We take a group to Eastercamp, plan awesome movie nights, go ice skating and get dressed up (not all at the same time!). We hope to provide young people with great memories and help them to make great friends as well! Every year we also take our high schoolers away on a camp, line up a fabulous speaker and eat some good food! We believe this is all key in growing in relationship with each other and with God. There’s always something happened so get in touch with us, check us out on Facebook or check out the calendar to find out what’s going on.
