GenV – Fridays

Friday night Youth is an opportunity for young people to come with their friends, play games and hear about the radical love of Jesus. We have “bring a friend” evenings, events, Stepping Out and a youth worship band called Resound.
GenV – Sundays
For: School Years 6-9

Sunday morning Youth is a place for questioning, growing and making friends. We love the opportunity for our youth to ask the questions that matter in their lives.
We have an amazing team of dedicated leaders who serve week in, week out at Gen V. We value our leaders integrity, passion and faithfulness to Jesus and our young people. Our leaders are committed to reaching, supporting, equipping and empowering young people.
All leaders have completed their Working With Children’s Check, as well as the mandatory Northridge Vineyard ‘Caring For Our Kids’ workshop.
Camps and Conferences
Looking for permission notes? They’re just over here in the Resources section…
Soul Survivor – April
‘soul.conference’ is the annual conference hosted by Soul Survivor NSW/ACT, a Christian organisation that runs events to encourage and equip young people to live out the heart of worship and see Jesus’ love impact the world. This is GenV’s biggest event of the year, with many friends and new faces coming along.
Youth Camp – December
Held in early December each year, our annual Youth camp is a place where we celebrate GenV and God. We stay at Lake Macquarie and swim, sing, laugh, learn, play wide games (and much more).
We offer opportunity for young school leavers to support GenerationV through an internship program. The internship operates on a yearly basis, with interns committing to one day a week in the church office, plus one weekly youth ministry activity such as GenV Fridays or Sundays. Interns will be given the opportunity to be mentored and discipled, have responsibility over key ministry areas, and grow/develop in their skills, talents and giftings.
Outreach and Mission
Reaching out is part of our DNA at Northridge Vineyard. Reaching out to our friends, family and community members in order to share the amazing truth of who God is, is a key focus for us! This focus starts locally, but it doesn’t end at the borders of our suburbs, it extends far beyond that!
We recognise that many youth come to know God through their friends, so we make it a priority at GenV to focus, making a space where friends are allowed to ‘belong before they believe’. Throughout the term we have ‘bring a friend’ evenings and events targeting this.
This is a once-a-term activity where we ‘step out’ of our church walls and comfort zones, to help out, thank, and share Jesus with people in our community. This may be helping families out with gardening work, dropping off muffins to community organisations, or praying for people in our community.
We support the work of Soul Survivor throughout Australia, but particularly NSW/ACT. Their Soul.Conference in April is our biggest camp/conference of the year. A big part of this conference is serving the local and bush communities in practical ways.
