Solid Rock is a Bible Study run for youth in years 6-10 during the sermon on Sunday mornings.

Youth are expected to join us for the first part of our celebration, and are encouraged to use their gifts to serve the Body of Christ. After Café Time, they meet together to do in-depth studies in God’s Word. Solid Rock aims to deepen the understanding that these young men and women have about Jesus and what it means to follow Him. 

Illumin8 is our Friday night youth ministry for students in year 6 through to year 10. It’s a place where teens can ask the big questions of life, discover Jesus, make some great friends and have fun along the way.

Each Friday night we play games, share supper together, read the Bible and discuss what we have read in an attempt to better understand the character of God, the person of Jesus Christ, and ourselves. Each term we also have special events and recreational activities organised, and seek to refresh the youth in their school studies by creating a supportive, friendly and gospel-centred community.

The group is supervised by a team of Christian leaders who are intent on encouraging and teaching the youth each term through the words they speak and by their actions. All people who work with youth at Southside Bible Church are required to have a current ‘Working with Vulnerable People’ card and be committed partners at Southside Bible Church.

Illumin8 is a youth ministry of the Bible Churches in Canberra, bringing youth from all ages and from all  areas of Canberra.  We seek to welcome people without prejudice and share the love of Jesus without compromise. If you are a high school aged student we would love you to join us on Friday nights and get involved – you don’t even have to be part of Southside Church.
