New Covenant Kids
Our heart is that no child should leave a Sunday morning without being changed and equipped in some way to exercise their faith in the week to come. Lessons are structured to cover all the essentials aspects of growth in our faith. Scripture reading, Prayer, listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit and Worship are woven into a fun, engaging and interactive Sunday morning expression.
We maintain that the primary spiritual input into a child’s life must come from the parents and that we play a support role in this. New Covenant Kids (NCK) is totally committed to partner with parents in the spiritual growth of their children.

At Stepping Up we want young people to foster a sense of adventure and have a whole lot of fun too. After all a life with Jesus is never boring! Our desire is to create a safe space where young people can be free to ask the “hard” questions of life and meet the life giver Himself. Build solid lasting friendships and put their faith into action.
We also have a heart to see young people recognise the gifts God has placed in them and leverage them to bring glory to His name. This is expressed through our annual youth talent show, which has become an event with a city wide audience.

Darren who’s nickname, the “faster pastor” (from his racing days) was volunteer in NCK for 3 years before he transitioned into a full time role in 2011.
YOUNG BLOOD FOREVER
We hate religion. We desire authentic relationship with the Father. We are a community of young people who aren’t perfect, we are flawed, we sometimes fall short but, we know that we are loved.
In a world where conforming to the status quo is not only the norm, but also an expectation, we passionately aim to position young people to boldly walk in relationship with the Father. We believe that God has purposed young people for influence, not to follow. In light of this our mission at Young Blood Forever is simple: to become more like Christ.
