REVIVE is the youth ministry of the Network for those in years 7-12 at school. We meet most Friday nights during term as a big group and in Connect Groups for those who want to. We endeavour to do real life together, while having a whole lot of fun while doing it!
REVIVE Friday Nights
REVIVE Friday Nights run during school term from 7 – 9pm, at St Hilary’s Kew (12 John St, Kew) and various other locations as notified. This is a place for youth to invite their friends into our community to have fun, discuss life and engage with God. We do a variety of activates from social nights to build community doing activities like movie nights, board game nights, laser tag etc., to themed teaching nights that looks to ask the question of how does the world relate to the God of the Christian faith.
Each Revive night costs $5 unless otherwise specified.

REVIVE Connect Groups
REVIVE Connect Groups run during school term for any students in Years 7-12. They are smaller communities that allow youth to go deeper in exploring the Christian faith and various topics. Mostly they meet weekly and are gender specific and school age specific (Years 7-8 or 9-12). There’s time to socialise, read the bible together and discuss what is happening in each other’s lives. Two volunteer youth leaders lead each group, and most groups meet weekly at some point on a Sunday. To sign up for a group or find out more, email our Youth Minister Lars at firstname.lastname@example.org.
REVIVE has a Winter and a Summer Camp for all youth in years 7-12, held in the June School Holidays and the first week of January. Both REVIVE Camps are actioned packed full of games, great activities and learning about God with a bunch of other high schoolers and young adult leaders. They are fantastic opportunities for our youth community to go away together to grow in their relationship with God and with one another, as we seek to make Jesus known among our friends.
REVIVE Winter Camp
The camp is structured around biblical teaching, small group discussion time, as well as games, activities and free time. It runs for school years 5-12.
REVIVE Summer Camp
This camp is for those heading into years 7-12 and is set up as an outdoor adventure camp with devotional style teaching and worship, and a number of different outdoor activities. It has a deliberate loose structure, with the focus on having fun, and building relationships in a relaxed environment.
How to get involved?
We want our youth to be inviting their friends to participate and to meet Jesus. This is the main way for young people to get involved. We send out weekly emails to parents and youth, updating them on what is happening next, and if you want further details please contact one of our youth ministers.
