Seed Sowing at CHYPS Youth Group

CHYPS, is the Chapel Street Young People's YOUTH GROUP, for youth in school years 7 through to 13. CHYPS meets once a month, on a Saturday evening, from 6.30pm to 8pm at the Chapel Street Centre.

The purpose of CHYPS is:
* to welcome youth from our church and community to connect in a fun, relaxed group with Christian values
* to build relationships between our church leaders and the youth in our church & community
* to be primarily a social group, enabling youth to make new friends and strengthen existing friendships within the church & our community

A typical CHYPS evening consists of a mix of high-energy and quieter games and concludes with supper & a 10-minute ‘God-Time’ (low-key, informal, bible-based chat/devotion).

Our current group has a wide range of ages and a mix of youth who attend church and many who don't. We provide a safe, friendly and caring environment where the youth feel valued and respected.

We aim to be 'Seed Sowers', in the words of Siu Williams-Lemi, Regional Youth Co-ordinator for the Sth Island Methodist Church:

We warmly invite new members to CHYPS, and if any parents are interested in helping on our supper roster we would love to hear from you!
