The name FOUND centres around the stories in Luke 15. God is the Father who is searching out those that are lost, driven by love. We are the FOUND; the ones that have been discovered by God and we desire as a home of the FOUND to see those that are lost, find home.
To see youth across our city and nation have a genuine encounter with the living God and belong in a family where they are empowered to live in the fullness of what Jesus paid for.
We are a gathering of young people, ‘Found’, to bring home those who are lost. We want to be a home where youth of all backgrounds can develop intimacy with God and belong in a community that empowers them to live in the fullness of what Jesus paid for.
Practical outworkings of our mission
We want to facilitate encounters with God; equip youth to grow in intimacy with people and God, and be a place where we teach and empower youth to do what Jesus commissioned.
The week for youth
Sundays: 11.15am - 12.15am for years 7, 8 & 9
Life Groups: 7pm - 9pm for years 10, 11, 12 & 13 (currently meeting on a Monday or Friday)
Thursdays: 7pm - 9pm for all youth
Thursday night FOUND
This is our weekly youth service in The Forum Coffee House. We will start with games and a time of connecting with the youth moving into a time of worship, teaching and prayer.
This part of the ministry is to reflect Thursday night and where we are going as Found but it will be a place to focus on the younger youth. The morning consists of a short game and discussion based teaching for Years 7-9. The rest of the youth are encouraged to attend the normal service and integrate into wider church through serving. Sunday Mornings take place in the Attic from about 11.15am - 12.15pm.
FOUND Life Groups
There is a need within the older youth for deeper and more intentional connection and this time will be a really important part of who are are. It will be for youth years 10 - 13; mixed group of boys and girls happening fortnightly. It’s a place for vulnerability, discipleship, connection, accountability and fun.
