A safe place for teens to explore  Jesus 

Feel at home, deepen friendships & encounter Jesus in the Bible

St James youth is lively and fresh. We’re committed to helping Jesus make sense to all high schoolers

Friday Youth Group

Our Friday Night Youth Group is a community of all types of people who have fun together and discuss what the Bible says. It’s a group for high schoolers from the surrounding suburbs.

Our large group is run by University Students and Young Workers who are keen to talk about their lives and faith. Each night we hope to clearly describe what Christians believe and to establish long-lasting, deep relationships through our various activities.

On Sundays

Morning Youth (years 7-9) meet every Sunday of school term during the 9am service. Youth start in the service with everyone, then leave to read the Bible and pray together.

Senior High Growth Group (years 10-12) meets each Sunday in school term from 4:30-6:00pm. We share food together, study the Bible, and pray. Afterwards, most members attend the Evening church service.

The 6pm service is made up primarily of Youth, University Students and Young Workers. It is a dynamic gathering which includes singing contemporary Christian songs, prayer, Bible reading and a sermon (Bible talk). It is followed by supper.

Safety is priority one!

God loves all people, which means He wants what’s best for them. And we do too! So as a community we strive to make church a safe place.

St James is committed to the highest standards of care and safety in our programmes for children and youth. All adult staff and volunteers in these programmes have a Working With Children Check as required by law. Additionally, they must also complete ‘Safe Ministry Training’ and have a refresher every 3 years. The church has a Safe Ministry Representative who monitors the currency and record-keeping for these accreditations.
