Billabong is our youth program for secondary school aged children (Year 6 and up).
On Sunday mornings we use a rotating timetable for variety. On the first Sunday each month, our Minister meets to talk with the young people while the rest of the congregation gather for worship. The young people then join the adults to listen to the Bible reading, message and prayers.
On second Sundays the young people join in our all-age worship service.
On third Sundays, young people meet with a leader during the second half of the church service. They play games and explore issues about God and faith in an interactive environment.
Gungahlin Uniting Church also runs a mentor program, where each young person meets with his/her adult mentor to build a relationship. The mentor might play a game, visit a café, teach craft, cook or just talk with their young person. This happens during the second part of church on fourth Sundays.
The young people also meet for monthly social activities, often on a Sunday afternoon.
