South West Youth Communities (SYC) are the youth part of South West Baptist Church.

Each community is a vibrant, distinct bunch of young people which you can be a be part of!
SYC is for any intermediate and high school aged young person from school years 7 – 13 and is full of diversity and energy.

  • SYC Intermediates draw on all of South West Christchurch and wider, with Sunday morning and Wednesday programmes.
  • Juniors year 9 and 10 based at our Lyttelton St site Gym on a Wednesday night with a focus on fun and games, a God spot and care group discussions.
  • Senior groups year 11, 12 and 13 based in homes around South West Christchurch on a Wednesday night with a focus on fun, life discussions, exploring faith and food.

People can get on board at whatever level they choose, from simply seeing the 24-7 YouthWorkers around school or locally playing touch, going to camps, tramping, kayaking, going to youth groups or taking advantage of the dozens of mentoring groups.

We are young people and we’re here for young people, so come along, be yourself and enjoy!

Our Youth Groups run at several times and places during the week. They are led by a team of quality leaders and they are geographically aligned.
