The Tasmanian Baptist Youth Ministry's statewide structure is currently under review, but there is quite a bit going on at a local level.
Many of our churches run regular youth programs to suit a variety of ages. The plan is to post their details below so that you can easily find out what is going on in your area. This is a work in progress and by no means a complete list of who is doing what. If you don't see something close to you please do contact your local church and ask - just because they're not listed here doesn't mean there's not a vibrant youth group to get involved with.
If you are running a youth group at one of our churches and don't see it here, send details through to Renata to get them listed.
"OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE NOT THE CHURCH OF TOMORROW IF THEY ARE NOT THE CHURCH OF TODAY!"
Location: 284 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart
Contact: Nathan Lattimore (Youth Pastor)
Times: 1st & 3rd Fridays, Combined Night, 7:30-9:30pm, 2nd & 4th Fridays, Ignite, 3:30-5:30
About the Events:
Combined Nights are a chance to enjoy fun, new experiences in the context of an accepting community. Whether it's indoor rock-climbing, laser-tag, movie night, or even just chilling out together in our youth room, Combined Nights are a great opportunity to interact with other young people who enjoy the same kind of stuff! Why is it called Combined Night? Because there are just so many different kinds of young people who come along! Combined Nights see a broad spectrum of young people attending - from those without a faith of their own, to those with one; from those who were born in Australia to those who weren't!
Ignite is a chilled-out afternoon and a chance to get together, play some board games, shoot some pool, and explore the deeper questions of how the love of God can positively impact the lives of young people today.

A caring community who wishes to support, encourage and challenge the young people of Deloraine as they experience life's ups and downs and the loving God we have access to through Jesus.
We aim to provide a safe place for young people regardless of faith, where they are free to discuss the important matters in life. We welcome all young people as they are and hope to encourage them to grow into who they can be. The night generally consists of food, hanging out, occasional games, and a Christian values-based talk and discussion.
We hope to be light in the darkness, sharing the hope and love of Jesus Christ our friend and Saviour.
