Say hello to

CHRISTMAS V2020

LET'S GO, YOUTH LEADERS >>

Less carols, more cooking

Things are set to sound (and taste) different this year.

Our annual Christmas Carols may not be going ahead, but in their place, these alternatives, rich in Christmas Spirit, have been created for you to take and tailor to your youth group, collectively being promoted as the "Christmas Countdown".

We invite you to...

Host a series of events and activities - interactive and enriching - designed to bring youth and young adults together, celebrating the true meaning of Christmas...

 

And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God."

LUKE 1:35

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We're stronger together

These events are designed to be yours; hosted by you, at your location, with as little or as much guidance from us as you like. Our purpose is to bring people together.

Have a look through this series of events. Speak with your Priest and committee. You know your attendees and you know what they'll be interested in, then let us know. We'll help you organise things and we'll promote your events via our platform.

Some events might have specific requirements like a cooking space, so before selecting the events you'd like to hold, give consideration to these specifications.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN WITH

THE

SMILE PROJECT

Our dear elderly. Since we're not able to put a smile on their faces with nursing home visits this year, sending them a Christmas message may just do the trick!

We’ve got Christmas cards and envelopes ready to go. This project is suitable for a group small or large. It’s not so much about how many messages are sent, but that even one card can spread some much needed Christmas cheer.

Ideal to run as an activity with your youth and young adults group, or to tap onto the end of one of your talks!

Get on board

Email us the number of cards you'd like, and we'll organise delivery and collection from you once they've been written/decorated.

They'll be distributed to the nursing homes that have signed up to participate in “The Smile Project”.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN WITH

GINGERBREAD

HOUSE PARTIES

Bring youth and young adults together in a relaxed and fun environment to construct and decorate delicious gingerbread houses!

 

Designed to take place during your fellowship time or as a special Christmas activity, we have prepared gingerbread, lollies, and icing ready to go. We also have an experienced volunteer who has offered their assistance to run this workshop. Finished gingerbread houses could serve as a fundraising opportunity for your group, sold at your parish, or as a delicious take-home for those who've constructed them.

Get on board

Email us if you're interested and we'll be in touch to plan dates, time, location and other logistics.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN WITH

“CHRIST: THE TRUE GIFT”

SPIRITUAL TALK SERIES

A pop-up talk series, with one scheduled each week between 23rd November and 18th December, this initiative calls for fellowships and groups who are interested in hosting youth and young adults at their location.


The overarching theme will be “Christ: The True Gift”, with each talk focusing on a different aspect of this theme, as nominated by the guest speaker.

 

The aim of these talks is to provide spiritual sustenance, and enable youth and young adults to reflect on the true meaning of the Nativity, in preparation for Christmas Day.

Want to host one?

 

Existing fellowships/groups: Please email us your date of preference, time & location. We'll be in touch to discuss further.

New/not-yet-established fellowships/groups: What a great way to start! Please email us and we'll be in touch to help you navigate through organisation.

Want to be a part of the Ministry?

If you know someone who'd be a perfect fit to speak on this topic, or if you'd like to yourself, please let us know! We look forward to utilising all our youth’s gifts for the common goal of Church Youth Ministry.  Please email us.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN WITH

LET'S BAKE 

MELOMAKARONA!

The lead up to Christmas ignites the inner baker within all of us! Gather the youth and young adults of your parish/group to learn how to make traditional Greek Christmas cookies, Melomakarona. 


This could be held during your allocated fellowship time, or as a special Christmas activity. We're able to provide facilitators to lead the baking demonstration.


Includes a baking demonstration, a chance to mingle and snack, as well as some take-away samples of delicious honey-soaked delights!

Get on board

Email us if you're interested and we'll be in touch to plan dates, time, location and other logistics.

Please email us with your preferences and any questions: goayouthnsw@gmail.com

We'll work with you, aiming to have everything locked in by 6th November.

We invite you to spread the cheer
