We will be returning to face-to-face youth group this Saturday evening. We will be having youth in the parish hall from 7 pm to 8:30 pm from the 25th of July 2020.
Unfortunately, because of COVID infection control measures, we will not be supplying dinner or snacks for the time being. All activities and games will be planned with social distancing measures in place. Despite these restrictions, we have a very fun evening planned.
Thank you to everyone who joined in our zoom sessions over the last few months. It was really great to continue to meet as a community during this time. To those who weren’t able to join us, we are looking forward to seeing you again.
It will be great to see everyone in person for the first time in 3 months.
Also if there are any friends or youth you know who might be interested in coming along please invite them.
The St Luke’s Youth Team
About Our Youth Group
St Luke’s Youth Group meets every Saturday evening during the school term from 6- 8 pm in the parish hall. It was started by a member in our community, who felt the presence and involvement of youth in our Parish community was absent, as there hasn’t been a Youth Group since 2009.
The Youth Group was established in 2018 and has grown from just 4 Members to 25 Members, and still increasing.
Our youth evenings begin with a quick board game or table tennis match while chatting and catching up together.
We then share a meal together and play games as a big group. We watch a video on a chosen topic which is then followed by small group discussions on the topic where we can ask the hard questions and seek answers together.
Our focus is on building a community of young people who share common beliefs that can journey through life together.
All events will be posted on the Parish Bulletin and the calendar, which is available from the Parish Office.
Every Sunday from 4-5 pm the youth who play musical instruments or sing meet to praise God together and to develop their skills to learn how to play together in a band.
If you are interested in coming along please contact the Parish Office on: Telephone: (02) 9773 9065
