We meet to learn from the Bible, hang out with friends and have fun. We’d love you to join us.
We’re a welcoming, energetic and growing youth group of over 100 high schoolers from all over Sydney.
Lights meets on Friday nights during term time in the St Thomas’ Memorial Hall, which is off the courtyard that you enter from McLaren Street.
We also have a Sunday morning program called Daylights that runs during the 10am church service in term time.
Lights is first and foremost about Jesus, there really are wonderful and surprising things in God’s word. You can expect an engaging Bible talk and discussion group with your friends.
God is the God of relationship (the Bible says ‘God is love’) and so we have found that when we get into God’s word together, amazing and deep friendships grow from it. You can expect to make some great friends (many become friends for life).
You can also expect a lot of fun, games and (of course!) heaps of good food. If you don’t know much about God or Jesus, that’s fine – Lights is a great place to find out!
If you’ve never come to Lights before, let us know you’re coming and we’ll keep an eye out for you this Friday! Or if you’ve been coming for ages but don’t get our regular email, sign up and we’ll keep you up to date with special events.

LiT is an awesome camp for youth in years 9-12 run by Youthworks. LiT stands for ‘Leaders in Training’.
Here at Lights, Jesus is the person we talk about most.
So who is he and why is he important?
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus is God the Son who became human, to live a perfect life and die for us, so we could have eternal life.
Here are 5 simple, key points about what we believe at Lights:
God created the whole world, including us. He made us in his image, which means all humans are valuable. And he made us for a personal relationship with him (he didn’t just make everything and then sit back / disappear).
