Lakeside Youth

Lakeside Youth is the youth ministry component of North Porirua Baptist Church. At Lakeside Youth we enjoy growing our friendships with each other and with Jesus through our social events, activities, outings, and Bible studies. We also enjoy annual camps together.

Lakeside Youth is a place where young people can come to know a God who loves them, and where they can grow spiritually and journey with others as they learn what it means to follow Jesus.

We believe every individual is unique and has something significant to share with others. We encourage youth to be involved in serving and volunteering in areas of the church that interest them, so they feel that they are a valued, active part of the church family.

Lakeside Youth is a safe space for young people to hangout, grow and explore life together in an environment of acceptance and love.
