a church




Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1Timothy 4:12

Emmanuel Church values young people. It is important to us that the younger and older people in our church have the opportunity to experience both specialised age-specific ministries and cross-generational ministries. Whether this is serving in kid's ministry alongside older members or attending Sunday church as a family we believe our church is healthier when we serve and worship together. 

We are committed to keeping children and young people safe. To find out more about out safe ministry you can click here

All our Youth Leaders love Jesus. Under the leadership of our Student Minister Simon Swadling, and supported by our Senior Minister Hayden Smith, our leaders love to teach the Bible in the context of fun and friendship. All our leaders are trained in Safe Ministry and have provided a verified Working With Children Check number (only applicable to leaders aged 18 years or older). 

We are so blessed to have leaders who love and lead our young people



To assist with the significant transition from primary school to high school, we have adopted a "middle school" model of youth ministry.  

On Fridays nights from 6pm-8pm our Junior High Youth in Years 6-8 enjoy games, friendship, punchy and challenging Bible talks, a space for chatting and questions, Christian mentoring from godly young adults, handball and more. 

If you'd like to join us on Friday, you'd be welcome to just come along or you can let us know that you're coming using the button below.

Please do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19. 



During COVID-19, Junior High is on during our 10.30am service. Our youth are checked in near the HUB, and then enjoy a Jesus-y and relaxed Bible Study with leaders and friends. 

The young people study the same passage as the adults and join the children and adults at the end of the service. 

Recognising the diverse needs of our Senior High students in Years 9-12, we offer a range of tailored ministries including Bible Studies and social activities.

Many of our Senior High students attend our 6pm church service. This is a great opportunity to mix with young adults, to experience challenging Bible teaching, in a welcoming and informal environment. We'd love to see you there!
