Student - Youth Ablaze

Welcome to Newcastle

Freshers?... New to Newcastle? Looking for a Church? We are a church that loves students. We believe that God has a purpose for you being here in Newcastle and we want to support, love, challenge and encourage you fulfill His plan for your life.

To find out more about the City of God Christian Centre, why not come along to any of our services. Our Sunday worship service kicks off from 10:30am.

Why not join us for our FREE Student welcome lunch immediately after the church service. It's a fab opportunity to fellowship with the leaders, other students and grab a bite.


Youth Ablaze is the Student ministry of the City of God Christian Centre, Newcastle.

Our desire is that every young adult and student is set ablaze for God and spreads the passion and flame across our society and the world at large.

We are passionate about Relationships and our desire is that you grow and mature in God.

We believe an isolated flame is easily quenched but together we can burn brighter and become an irresistible force.

We host a variety of events to help facilitate your growth in God and foster a community driven by God's love.

Whats Going On

Church Services: We would like to encourage you to attend the regular weekly church services and get involved. It is an opportunity to fellowship with other christians as we study the word of God, prayer and worship God with our all.

Home Groups:  We meet in small groups to study God's word on a friday evening every fortnight for an hour from 7pm at various locations in Newcastle. Most home groups are located within walking distance to halls of residences and most groups offer students ride if needed.

If you would like to join a student home group nearest to you. Please speak to the Home Group coordinator after the service or any of the student leaders at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Ablaze Encounter Event: A time of praise, worship, the word and to have an encounter with God.

Student and Singles Weekend Away: This is often the highlight of the year. We set off usually on a friday evening and spend 2 nights at a location with beautiful sceneries. We spend time on the word, prayer, workshops and interactive Q&A sessions, relationship talks, games, activities and much more. 

The date for our upcoming weekend away will be confirmed soon. To reserve a place, contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Student Conference: We would be hosting our very first student conference in 2015. It is an exciting opportunity to gather students together from across the city and experience revival.

We are looking for volunteers for this event, if you want to be a part of this speak with any of the student leaders.

Socials: We know how important it is to have fun in the midst of student life pressures so each term we endeavour to hold social events such as bowling, beach, day trips and much more. We encourage you to come along with your flatmate, course mates and non-christian friends. 

If you have any ideas on a social trip, feel free to share this with any of the student leaders.

Talks: W hope to run little workshops and talks for students aimed at addressing topics that may not be addressed in our weekly meetings such as handling student finance, time managment, CV and career... to name a few.

City of God is always looking for volunteers to welcome people on Sunday, help with the kids sunday school, join the prayer team, sing in the choir or play in the worship team, join the technical team etc.
