Youth Socials

Once a term the teenagers in City Youth Junior have an opportunity to join our social events.

This is a wonderful time for the teenagers at Grace City Youth to develop deeper friendships and connect as a group.

It is also an excellent avenue to invite friends along, who in time may also be interested in joining City Junior Youth. At the socials we generally enjoy a meal together followed by a fun activity.

Grace City Church follows the Safe Ministry policies and procedures advised by the Anglican Diocese, outlined in this policy document.

All leaders have:

  • A verified Working With Children Check
  • Safe Ministry Training Certificate
  • Safe Ministry Check

What some have said about City Youth Junior...


A teenage girl was challenged and encouraged by the exploration of God and Science in a series at City Youth. She said ‘I didn’t think that God and Science could fit together. But now I think that God and Science tell us different things. For example, the bible tells us why the world was made and Science tells us how the world was made.’


After the City Youth social a mother said ‘The boys had a great time. My son’s friend who visited, said the discussions were very interesting and wants to come back to church’. The youth leader followed up with ‘This teen articulated the gospel in our prayer group with his own analogy of a wound and band aid’.


A teenage girl in City Youth said ‘In our recent series on the book of the bible called James, I learnt that if you become a Christian it means you change the way you live and act. For example, as a Christian I have to have more self control. I think being a Christian helps me to be a better person.’
