Converge Youth is the awesome youth ministry of York St. We offer a wide range of activities and groups all aimed at helping young people meet Jesus, become like Him and be equipped to impact the local and global community.

Our goal is to have an open youth community seeking Jesus and being enabled to follow His call on their life, whilst having as much fun as possible. We are a friendly bunch of people who live life to the full and who have discovered the awesome purposes God has for all young people. Our ministry believes that young people have the capacity to do remarkable things for God and also change the world in the process.

This year we have decided to make a few changes to how our youth ministry works as well, we are now running youth on every Friday night, alternating from an activity week to a bible study week; both running at 7pm-9pm and held at York Street unless stated otherwise. The cost will also be $2 per week, which covers costs and supper. 

 We are also on facebook so just click on the facebook button. Below are just some of the stuff Converge Youth gets up to!

Activity Nights

Friday Night is when most young people are at a loose end and are looking for something to do. Look no further! Every second Friday Night we offer a program of fun games and activities. These nights are for ALL youth in years 6-12, and have a different theme each event. Themes range from Car Rallies to Masterchef Nights, and from Wet N Wild Nights to Movie Making.

Bible Study Nights

Bible study nights happen every 2nd Friday night alternating with the activity nights, this is where small groups of young people can be connected, cared for and taught the Bible by a caring adult leader. This is the place to really connect with our youth ministry, be discipled and discover the awesome purpose God has for your life.

Youth Special Events

Periodic events designed for young people to invite their friends and introduce them to Converge Youth. These special events are always heaps of fun and aimed at the first timer. Events like Adventure Park, Beach Days and State Youth Games Launch Party are just some of the things we get up to.

Youth Camps

Our annual youth camps are always a highlight of the year. A weekend full of fun activities, and a time to encounter God and be challenged in our faith. Our venue changes each year, the 2014 camp was held at Araluen Camp, Anglesea

Youth Takeover Services

Our bi-monthly youth takeover services always draw a crowd at our 6pm service. We love seeing young people use their gifts in music through our youth band, multimedia and the arts. Youth Takeover services champion young people and encourage succession. Not to mention they simply just ROCK!

State Youth Games (SYG)

The annual State Youth Games is a must attend on the York St calendar not only for youth, but also all young adults. Over 3000 young people each Queens Birthday Long Weekend gather in Warragul to particpate in all the sports you can imagine. Combine a tent city, an awesome night program and you have a recipe for an unforgettable weekend.

Youth Mission Experiences

Converge Youth offers a variety of missional experiences such as bi- annual cross cultural mission trips, local mission service projects all aimed at providing young people with opportunites to look beyond the walls of Sunday Christianity. We believe that young people have a great capacity to serve others and be changed in the process.
