A revolution of love.


Why does 8FIFTEEN Youth exist?

Amid a society dominated by values that are so anti-God, we have seen a need to create a space where the young people of the church can journey together, ask questions, and build relationship with like-minded people.

As Sons and Daughters of a Father who is King, Creator, Lover, and Saviour, the Katalyst Youth Ministry, seeks to champion exactly what Paul states in Romans 8:15.

“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.”

We disciple and we gather in pursuit of this very thing. To see our youth  be transformed and live out their lives as sons and daughters of the King.

What is 8FIFTEEN Youth?

In short, we’re a youth ministry run by a bunch of dedicated and passionate people from Katalyst Church! Our desire is to create a space for youth in school years 7 to 12, to allow them to know, believe and grow in their value, worth, identity and purpose in truth.

At Katalyst, we believe that young people are an integral part of the church body. Thus, our youth ministry team strives to foster a healthy discipleship culture whereby young people feel safe, included, challenged and empowered within this body.

What does this look like practically?
– Friday Night youth events which are held fortnightly
– One on one mentoring of young people, in liaison with parents/carers

Anyone of high-school age is welcome to participate, whether they are associated with Katalyst Church in any other way or not.
