Covid safe protocols for youth group 2021
Time – Friday nights during public school term
yrs 7-8: 7pm-9pm,
yrs 9-12: 7pm-9:30.
Youth group is still school ages yr 7-12
If conditions worsen, or restrictions tighten we will aim to run two separate groups in separate spaces at the same time to minimise numbers.
Youth who are unwell or sick will not be allowed to attend
Our leaders are required to and will social distance 1.5 metres from other leaders and youth. Youth are not required to social distance from other youth at E3 as we fall under similar rules to schools.
Hygiene and Cleaning
Youth are required to use hand sanitiser upon entry and exit. Youth will be told to wash hands or use hand sanitiser if necessary during the program. Youth should bring their own water bottle. Youth will not be allowed to share phones or electronic devices. We encourage youth to bring a bible if they own one and their own pen and notebook to use for writing (we will provide paper copies of bible passages for those who don’t bring their own bibles).
Youth are currently not required to wear masks becasue they are in an age appropriate ministry context, youth groups have been given similar rules to schools. Youth leaders will wear masks if advised to by church or state government.
Food and Cost
We will provide Covid safe supper at Youth. All supper will be individually wrapped, distributed by gloved and masked leaders. Youth will hand sanitise before and after eating.
Cost – $2
Drop off and Pick up
Parents will need to remain outside the building to limit people inside, and to minimise parents congregating. They may walk with their children to the door of the church at 7pm. At 9pm (9:30 for yrs 9-12) our program will be concluded. Parents may then collect their children in one of two ways. Parents may text their children to come out, or parents may come to the door of the church and a youth leader will collect their child.
All youth will need to have a registration form filled out for them by their parent/guardian before they attend or on the first night they attend one of our meetings. The rego form is available above. It can be filled out at the door on Friday nights.
E3 is our youth group for high-schoolers.
It’s on most Friday nights during the public school term from 7pm-9pm. We meet at Berowra Anglican Church (18 Berowra Waters Road).
The most important thing we do at Youth Group is learn about Jesus and help young people grow in their faith. We want to do that in the most fun and exciting way possible. We hang out, play some awesome games, listen to talks from the bible and think about it in small groups, pray for each other and go on great outings. Our leaders run 2 camps a year for the whole youth group, and we take youth in years 9-12 on a weekend conference called KYCK in April each year.
We have about 40 youth attend each week, and 14 adult leaders.
In year 6 at school this year?
We invite year 6 to join us during term 4 each year. This helps them get to know each other and build great friendships before beginning high school. The first night you can come is October 8th. If you’re in year 6 come along and invite your friends!
