Element Youth

Element Youth


ELEMENT Youth is St Albans overall ministry to young people. It consists of three "elements": :

  • EMpower: Our ministry to high schoolers
  • ENgage: Our ministry to students and young adults

We run a range of programmes for each of these elements - click on the links above to find out more.


From the Youth Pastor:

New to Palmerston North and looking for a church with a comprehensive ministry to young people that aims to make disciples through Bible teaching, supportive community and fun together? We offer a range of programmes for intermediates through to young adults which you can read about in these pages.

Our ten core values/purposes are:

  1.  To bring glory to God in everything we do 
  2.   Making Jesus central to our planning and programming
  3.   Making disciples who live under God’s grace and by His indwelling presence 
  4.   Teaching and group discussion based on a comprehensive curriculum
  5.   Involving all generations in teaching, caring, and praying for young people.
  6.   Supporting families in their role of discipling their children
  7.   Actively participating in and with the wider church
  8.   Involving young people in service and mission
  9.   Developing young people's leadership potential and gifting
  10.   Creating spaces for young people to have fun while developing healthy friendships.

If this resonates with you and you're interested in knowing more, I'd love to meet with you and your family in your home and talk more about what we offer while getting to know you better. Call the church or email me. - Murray Brown, youth pastor
