Ablaze – Friday Nights

Is our intermediates social gathering running fortnightly on Friday nights. We have all sorts of crazy fun together. Our Friday night events are all about being a part of a crazy fun space, while being the best safe and welcoming environment possible (we are all about community!).


Ablaze – Sunday mornings (during 10.30am service)

Ablaze is our intermediates youth programme on a Sunday morning, during the 10:30am service. We meet over at the Whangaparaoa Community Hall (across the carpark adjacent to church). We’ll meet there for games, times of worship, smallgroups, a tonload of fun – whilst learning all about the coolest guy around – JESUS!


The Ablaze programmes only run during the school term. Throughout select Sunday mornings during school holidays, we run a ‘lite’ version of Ablaze, which starts with having young people in the church service for the first bracket of worship.

Is our dynamic social event for anyone who is year 10-13. Takes place every second Friday during school term.  The whole aim of BOOST is to hang out together, meet some new people and just have a heck of a lot of fun in a way that you would never do with just your mates.

We have small groups for each highschool year level and the aim is simply connection and discipleship.  They range from social nights to bible study to topical discussions and more.  It’s a place of belonging for young people and a safe environment to be supported on life’s journey.  Once a month we have an all-in night at church where all the lifegroups come together for a night of worship, teaching and fun.

the HUB

the HUB is every last Tuesday of the month and is a youth service style event for all highschool lifegroups. We have games, a range of expressions of worship, someone preaching and we want to facilitate space where people can learn about and encounter Jesus.

Other Events

Easter Camps (e-Camp & Eastercamp)

Every Easter weekend, we take our young people away to eCamp (for intermediates). It’s a weekend jam packed full of mad fun with about 1000 other young people and leaders from across NZ – there will be the classic favourites like ski biscuits and rockets, animal survival, sling shot paint ball, gladiator, screen printing, the blob, water slides, eCamp’s Got Talent and the legendary competitive soccer tournament. Not only that, but the fun-filled daily meetings featuring a fabulous NZ speaker as we unpack who Jesus is and what he means for us, our favourite worship team, and plenty of “on stage” fun and craziness!
