Our young people are highly valued members of our Church community and we strive to involve and empower them in every area of Church life!
We love our young people to be involved in the life of the church at Summerleas in an inter-generational way, primarily through regular Gospel community meetings, but also through extra ministries that we provide.
At Summerleas, we want our Gospel Communities to be places where young people experience Gospel Centred, organic, relationships and grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus. We believe that the best way for young people to grow as Christians is through them loving, serving, and relating to a variety of people from little babies right through to the elderly.

GC Youth Ops
For youth age 9 +
Another way we disciple our youth is through Gospel Community Youth Opportunities (GC Youth Ops.). Youth Ops provides an opportunity for all of the Summerleas youth (grade 4 and up) to spend time together as a peer group, whilst at the same time providing the opportunity for them to build relationships and study the Bible with adults from their Gospel Communities. Youth Ops takes place once a month during school terms.
Impact Camp happens each year in November. It is an overnight camp for youth aged 9+. Not only is it a fun and exciting weekend for our young people, it is also an opportunity for our older teens to lead the younger kids in our church and learn great skills in discipleship.
