activate youth

If you're 12-17 years old (gr 7-12), Activate Youth is the place to be on a Friday night. It's fun, energising, empowering & life changing.  Each week we hang out with friends, grow towards God & have heaps of fun along the way.

Activate believes that you are created with purpose; that you weren't made to watch your life from the sidelines as a spectator, but to live it to the full & really mean it.  We are here to have heaps of fun & to support you through life while encouraging you to grow into your potential.  Dinner starts at 6:30pm ($5 for food, $1.50 for soft drink can).  Pick up time at 9pm.

When we gather together our nights typically contain the following elements;

  • Games - fun, interactive, all-in, energising, designed to help you learn and connect with one another.
  • Praise & worship - intentional time to honour God and lift up His name.
  • Message - relevant teaching from our youth leaders on topics ranging from relationships, purpose, understanding the Holy Spirit, social media - and the list goes on!
  • Connect Group time - time with other people of your age group to chat about life and how to encourage and pray for one another in your walk with God.

Once a term we also have Clan Wars - these are like school 'houses' and are game filled nights celebrating how God made us to have FUN together with Him and one another.

Other events during the year include A2A Youth Conference in March, A2A Youth Camp in September, Guest speaker nights and occasional outings! We're a church youth group and so much more.

For those in grades 6 & 7 we also run a special program called Revolution on Sunday mornings during the 2nd church service.

We also have an Activate Youth Ipswich Families facebook page, with some support & communication specifically for parents & caregivers. We're centrally located in Brassall near Brassall State School & Ipswich State High School.
