Xplode Youth

Xplode is a community youth ministry for years 6 to 12 that meets on Friday nights during the school term at C3 Church Cherrybrook.

Our ministry provides a healthy and fun environment for young people to gather on a weekly basis. We are all about building relationships and sharing experiences in an encouraging setting that promotes Christian values. Just as Jesus loves each one of us, we are instructed to love one another also. At Xplode, we look forward to welcoming new faces and introducing them to new friends, connections and the opportunity to grow closer to our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Friday nights are filled with a time to hang out, exciting games, music and a devotional session - followed by a hearty supper of course! Every week brings new adventures as we encourage and empower the youth of the community in a way that will enable them to best fulfil the plan that God has for each and every one of them.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”Jeremiah 29:11 

We look forward to seeing you!
