Y@P (Youth @ Papanui)

Open to all High School Youth (Year 9-13)
Every Wednesday nights, during school term, 7:00pm- 9:00pm

We desire for our young people to become resilient disciples of Jesus Christ, and to be living an abundant life in and for him. Our dream is that they are aware that he is in the midst of their relationships, school work, sports, arts and more, and that they are eager to continue to grow in relationship with him.

Papanui Baptist Church

We are a people of God who are learning to share God’s heart for each other and for northwest Christchurch. Papanui Baptist began with a ministry to children from our community (1958), and we have continued the tradition of working to support the needs in our suburb. We are on a journey of learning to be salt and light in our neighbourhoods across the northwest (and beyond), doing life together throughout the week with a desire to see God’s upside-down kingdom breaking through in the lives of our neighbours and our local area.
