Who are we
Eclipse Youth is an activity and social group for those aged 12 to 17 (grades 7-12) and is run by volunteers from Wynnum Baptist. During the school term we meet every Friday night at 6:00pm.
We believe in having fun, a good laugh, occasionally doing something silly and sharing it all with friends. We also believe that youth need a safe place to go and enjoy some freedom away from the stress of school, to develop friendships, speak their mind and just hang out. So we combine that with Nerf battles, jumping castles, messy nights, ice skating and other awesome activities and just let youth be youth.
Do I have to be a Christian?
No. While all of our leaders and a number of our youth are committed followers of Jesus, many of our youth are not. We do talk about our faith, however we don’t Bible bash, exclude or judge based on your life choices or faith beliefs. We believe that no persons religion, sexuality, family situation, mental/physical health or history should exclude them from anything, including Eclipse.
While I am at Eclipse Youth can I……?
Please be aware that we do have expectations of behavior that reflect our desire for an inclusive and safe youth group. At Eclipse we do not allow alcohol, smoking or drugs, and we do not admit anyone who appears to be affected by them. We do not tolerate bullying of any kind, bad language or violence. Eclipse Youth leaders value and accept relationships that youthies may form however we have an expectation that there will be no public displays of your affections. Finally we do not allow that shared watching of mobile or technical devices, as we have no control over the safety of the content on those devices. So feel free to bring your phone, update whatever social media you like, even play a game or two, but keep your phone to just you.
