Keeping in Contact
So we won't be meeting together in person for a while at this point. But I want to make sure I let people know you are still important to us! We are doing our best to keep people updated with what is going on.
The best place to connect with us is via our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/igniteyouthdev ) or Instagram @igniteyouthdev we will be trying to update those spaces regularly. We are also looking at other ways we can connect too!
We as the leaders of Ignite Youth also want you to know that our priorities have not changed! We still have the same 3 priorities that we had at the start of the year.
Our Priority is Jesus - We believe in Him and we want to share Him with others!
Our Priority is Growing You - We believe that everyone was made by God and we want to help them step into who God has made them to be.
Our Priority is People over Program - We don't have a program at the moment, but we still have people who are connected to us! You are important to us... So important!
So, we are still available to pray for you. Or if you are worried or stressed or anxious and want to speak to someone then contact us. We care about you still!
Yowie's phone number is 0429 69 4343.

Yowie is still available and working through this time so if you need to, please contact us.

Hi there parents and carers,
You may have been expecting this email from us...
Due to the unprecedented impact of Coronavirus (COVID19) nationally and internationally, we are following recommendations to suspend our regular Friday night gatherings. There will be no Ignite Youth, GirlZone or BoyZone until further notice. Because of the rapidlyevolving nature of the impact ofCOVID19, we can't say when we will resume or what these events will look like into the future. We will try to keep in touch the usual electronic ways.
As leaders we have a sense of disappointment about not being able to connect with your kids and young people as we normally would, but we are more concerned with their safety and wellbeing. We also need to be respectful of government and health authority recommendations.
One more thing: At Devonport Church of Christ we believe in a God who is bigger than Coronavirus. If you, your child or young person is feeling fearful or uncertain, we would love to pray for you. On our church websitedevonportcoc.com.auunder thecontacttab, you can submit a prayer request. Staff pray through these every week. Or, call your Ignite Youth, BoyZone or GirlZone leader and they can pray with you over the phone.
We would love for you to connect with our Church's Facebook page for updateshttps://www.facebook.com/devonportcoc/. This will be a good way of keeping up to date with what is happening. For those at Ignite Youth please follow on Facebook and Instagramhttps://www.facebook.com/IgniteYouthDev/Insta: @igniteyouthdev
We'll be in touch. Promise!
Yowie - Ignite Youth Leader, Simona - GirlZone Leader, Dominic - BoyZone Leader
Term 1 2020 Program
Please find a downloadable copy of the program below
Ignite Youth -Junior High and Senior High
Ignite Youth is for young people in grades 6-12. (Grade 5's in term 4). We want a fun, engaging place where youth know they are valued. Our desire is to share about a God who loves them and the Good News of Jesus. This doesn't mean we are only for Christians; all are welcome at Ignite Youth! We have many young people who don't share our faith but who love the friendships and fun in our program.
No need to register young peoplecan just rock up on Friday night. However all young people must be signed in and out by an adult. We also need an information consent form (links below!) This can be done on the night!
Unless otherwise advertised Ignite Youth meets at Devonport Church of Christ on Friday nights during school terms. Our events run from 6:30pm-8:30pm and cost $3
If you have any questions at all about Ignite Youth then please contact Iain Anderson: email@example.com or 0429694343
What is Crowded Lounge?
What about Crowded Lounge for the Grade 9-12's?
Crowded Lounge is semi-regular event within the term for the grade 9-12's. These nights are a little bit more laid back and provide an opportunity to build relationships with the young people and discuss topics about life and faith. These nights are also held in the homes of members of Devonport Church of Christ, for more information about the location each time please contact Iain Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Youth DNA Groups
At Devonport Church of Christ our small group programs are known as DNA groups.
DNA groups meet at various times through the week and are a vital part of church life. They are the primary place pastoral care happens, as they provide an environment of deeper fellowship. Application of Scripture to life in personal discipleship and encouragement to greater engagement in mission & ministry also happen best in DNA Group life.
Grade 7/8's have a DNA group that meet fortnightly on Sunday mornings during our 10 am service. This small group seeks to build and develop foundational skills in the young people particularly around how to engage with church and sermons, as well as aspects of owning their faith.
Contact Iain 'Yowie'Anderson (email@example.com) for details about when the group meets.
