Youth • Fuel Hangs

Figtree Youth is a ministry to those in years 6-12, that meets across the week at FAC to hang out together in a positive and engaging environment. As a community, we are seeking to be followers of Jesus and be on Jesus’ mission together. To do this, we gather for Friday Night Youth (FNY) for a range of dynamic programs for each of the years and time spent in community together. We gather for Bible study (FUEL) on Sunday afternoon and through the week to be built up as followers of Jesus and to find out more about Him by dipping into God’s word. We meet to be encouraged and challenged on what it means to ‘live life to the full’. We also gather for church on Sunday nights. Within those moments, leaders create opportunities for youth to experience God through His word and in the work of His people.

Sunday 'Fuel' Studies

Fuel is our youth-based LifeGroups, where youth get to connect with others in their age group and encourage one another in growing together. It is an awesome chance to dig deeper into God's Word and have some cool discussions.

Years 6 – 10 meet on Sundays at 4pm. 

Years 11 and 12 meet at various times throughout the week. 

After fuel on Sunday afternoons, a low-cost dinner is available for the young people before the 6pm church service. CLICK HERE to pay in advance for Term 2, 2023 dinners.
