Youth Ministry

Ground Zero:

A free youth programme which runs for 8 weeks during terms two and four.  Ground Zero focuses on leadership, responsibility, respect and team building. Each intake of 20 students ends with a camp which is always a highlight. Ground Zero looks at developing confidence, self-esteem, leadership qualities and many other life skills. Ground Zero has been successful due to the physical/outdoors nature of the course as well as the work and challenges done within teams. Contact:

The Alpha Course

Alpha is a free course where anyone can explore life’s big questions, and discover how the Christian Faith connects with them. One session per week over 7 thought provoking weeks.

Each week meet up with new friends over good food. A different aspect of the Christian faith is focussed on, followed up by discussing the topic in small groups.

ET Cares

At East Taieri we are passionate about seeing people cared for (also known as pastoral care). In life, we go through ups and downs – the birth of a child, the death of a loved one, a sickness, a tragic event – and through all the events of our lives our church family is there with us and for us. They pray for us. They offer us meals. They listen to us. They see our tears. They laugh alongside us. East Taieri Church is a place where all people are cared for.
