Kids & Youth

We are a Kids Friendly church

A place where children of all ages are:

  • Welcome, celebrated and nurtured
  • Belong and participate in the life and worship of the church
  • Explore, learn about and experience Christ and His love
  • Valued for what they bring to the whole church family

Wanaka Youth

We are an awesome group of Wanaka young people who love to get together for food and fun

The Collective for Year 10+ meet once a fortnight during term time on Sunday evenings @ 630pm for a bit of study, a chat and of course some pizza!

YAK  provides an opportunity for students from Years 9 to 13 to explore issues of life and faith. Students of all denominations or no church connections at all are welcomed on Tuesdays after school at the Lighthouse Church in Reece Crescent. Of course we always begin with food and a catch up!

Highlight of the year is Easter Camp in Christchurch where we meet up with hundreds of students from around the South Island

Too old for Youth Group?

 Our Young Adults Home Group meet fortnightly on Thursday nights @ 6:00pm, for a shared dinner and a discussion. Check out the Facebook page Wanaka – Young Adult Christians
