Carey Youth and Young Adults exists to win and empower generations of youth to be life long believers, followers and disciples of Christ. We work towards this goal through various youth programs, pods, mentoring and service opportunities.

Sunday Morning Youth

Sunday Morning Youth is lead by Georgia Scaife for year 7 & 8 during the Harrisdale Sunday morning service and they are currently looking at the theme:


The Sunday Youth Grade 7/8 program will be transitioning from a fortnightly program to a new four-week rotation of 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. This is to enable more of our grade 7/8s to make it to the program around the weeks they are rostered on for serving at church. Previously, half of our young people were serving on the same week that Sunday Youth was on. Part of our core principles is to support youth in both developing their own faith in their separate program but to also build their ownership of church family through serving. We are hoping this new pattern will allow more of the young people to not miss out on getting to both serve and attend Sunday Youth.
On the off weeks, we will have a space marked out in the auditorium for youth to sit together during the service if they want to.

Through this series, we will be going through the book of Romans and seeing what Paul has to say to us about living out our faith in our everyday lives. We started last week by examining Romans 12:1-2 and see that Paul urges us to include God in everything we do and to do it for God. When we set our mind on God, we start to get a second nature about how God wants us to act and respond. We will be progressing through different passages in Romans throughout the rest of term 3.

The Bible. We all know reading it is important (or at least that’s what we’ve been told), but if we’re being honest, we probably don’t give it the time or attention we know we should. Sometimes we avoid Scripture because it seems boring or irrelevant. Other times we avoid it because it’s too time-consuming, inconvenient, or maybe even convicting. So how do we change that? In this series, we will help youth see the Bible in a new way as they discover that the Bible is a letter from God, a guide, an invitation, and something that’s meant to be lived (not just read).

As part of this series, we will be encouraging youth to join us in a daily reading plan, working our way through Psalm 119 over the term. Let us know if you want to join in with us!

Carey | At Night

Carey At Night is more than just a service – it’s a movement.  It is a community of people who seek to connect with God through authentic sound, culture and voice for his glory.  An authentic faith is not limited to a church service.

Instead, it is seen as we live out God’s mission through our everyday lives.  As a movement, we want to see God use each one of us to impact this world for him, and at the same time be a community that is real about our wins and our struggles as we seek God together.

We would love for you to join us as we bring the community together on Sunday nights.
