About Us

South West Youth Community (SYC) is the youth community of South West Baptist Church. We operate under ‘Spreydon Youth Community Trust’, with a heavy focus on young people in the communities of South West Christchurch.

We operate through four Youth Communities, running weekly programmes, as well as various camps and tramps throughout the year. Each year 50,000 hours are volunteered in SYC.

One of our priorities is leadership development of our volunteer youth leaders. This happens through continual up-skilling and training throughout the year and is done both within SYC and through external providers.

SYC also has youth workers in four different schools in our area. This is operated through the well renowned ’24-7YouthWork’ brand, which was birthed at SYC.
