Arny’s is the youth ministry of Bayside Anglican Church, and shares the same mission of Bayside to:

Love | Grow | Share.

We encourage those who attend to be followers of Jesus Christ, and we will do all that we can to equip them as they live as Christians. Our leaders are committed to helping our students in any way possible. We welcome all teenagers to Arny’s and we hope that you would call Arny’s and Bayside Anglican your home.

Who is Arny’s for?

Arny’s Youth is for anyone who is in school Years 6-12.

When does Arny’s meet?

What does a night typically look like?

We spend the first couple of minutes chatting and catching up then we move to a game. Following this there will be a talk from the Bible, followed by a time for discussion and prayer. 

At 8:30pm I will end the Zoom meeting for everyone, so that no one is ever put in a potentially vulnerable spot.

To keep in line with Safe Ministry, the following must be observed:

  • There will always be three (3) leaders, at least one male and one female, at all times during the call
  • Everyone involved in the call is to be set up in a public space, i.e. in living/ dining room and not a bedroom.
  • We will only meet within this time frame (7:00-8:30pm)
  • No one-on-one chats will happen
  • Dress to be modest

Next Generation Minister
