At The Upper Room we are excited about walking alongside our young people and teaching them how to live and breath the gospel of Christ. We believe in the best and greatest commission of Jesus: to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything that he has commanded. We are excited to see the next generation of young people being radically transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and in turn proclaiming the good news in each of their own spheres of influence.
Loving Life – Loving Jesus
Friday Night Youth
We have a strong emphasis on reaching the local community of young people in Newmarket/Parnell area and so run regular events called Basement Youth for high schoolers as well as fun events for youth in Intermediate school called Attic Youth. We also go annually to BYM Easter Camp’s as well as HM Rage at Totara Springs over Queen’s Birthday and run spontaneous youth events often during the Summer and school holidays.
We come together on a Sunday morning to teach the foundations of Christian faith to our young people. This happens during the 10am service from around 10.30-11.30am.
There is also a massive youth presence at our Sunday night services which is a great time to connect particularly the older youth with the young adult/university age crowd. Sunday night services run weekly at 6pm. Click here to find out more!
