Christ Church Youth is made possible by a team of dedicated volunteer Youth Leaders. In the midst of busy lives of study, work, and other commitments, these men and women meet weekly to teach the Bible to, pray with, and support the young people of the Upper North Shore as they grow in their faith in Christ. 

Each leader has been trained in Safe Ministry and have provided a Working With Children Check Number
