If you haven’t already heard the exciting news, YOUTH IS BACK IN THE BUILDING
 After an extended and unprecedented season, we are finally moving back to a
community gathering. Like most activities in the community that are starting to re-
engage, there are guidelines we must adhere to in order to maintain a safe
environment for our Youth Ministry and the broader community.


7:00PM – 9:00PM

YEARS 6 – 12 (School Grades)

We will run Junior and Senior programs separately to ensure our numbers are within
the government guidelines of 100 people.
To allow our team the opportunity to adequately clean the venue between services,
we encourage you to not arrive too early or to hang around.
We respectfully ask you to please continue maintaining social distancing
requirements outside the church building.
Our program is flexible and will be adapted to ensure we are adhering to all
COVIDSafe regulations. Our program this Friday will be held in the Regent Theatre
and we will also allocate time for Connect Groups.

Drop Off/Sign in and pick up will be at the same location as prior in the market Street


Upon entering our premises, you will be asked to register in via a QR code. This will
need to be filled out before entering through sign in.
We will also be taking your temperature upon arrival to ensure we are providing the
safest environment possible for our youth


NSW Health guidelines recommend wearing face masks whilst attending worship
services. As such, you will see our staff and volunteer team wearing face masks
throughout the night at NEOS YOUTH.

Neos Youth recommends that students also wear masks. Masks can be
purchased from supermarkets, chemists, Bunnings, and convenience stores.


The following precautions have been taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all
who attend NEOS Youth and our broader community:

We have appointed and trained our Neos Youth Team to be a COVID Safe
Team who have been managing our COVID Safe Response.

We’ve undertaken a review of our processes to ensure we are demonstrating
excellence in our church environment.
The cleaning frequency has been increased and our venue will receive a
thorough clean with hospital grade disinfectant in-between every age group. 
Our programs will be limited to 100 people, per program, as per NSW Health

There will be no printed materials, offering containers passed around during
the program.

Our leaders will be maintaining good social distancing practices so will be
avoiding hand to hand contact and hugs. But not to worry, we will be there to
greet you with a warm smile, a big wave or even a foot bump!

Hand sanitiser stations have been installed at our main entry & exit points and
sanitiser is readily available right throughout the building so please make use
of it!

To maintain a safe youth environment, we kindly ask that if any of the
following apply to you, please do not attend the service:

If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-
19 (eg: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny
nose or loss of sense of smell)

If you have COVID-19 or are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test

If you have been in close contact with any known or suspected cases of
COVID-19 in the past 14 days

If you have returned from overseas travel in the past 14 days

Who we are

Neos Youth Wollongong is the youth ministry of Awaken church Wollongong Central.
We exist not just to build a youth movement but to change a community. We are a Jesus centred youth ministry, built on his presence, his people, and his love. We run a program every Friday night of the school term for Grades 6-12. The program runs from 7-9:30pm and is located at the Regent TheatreWollongong.
We provide a safe space for teenagers to be part of our family, and to grow in their faith in Jesus. We aim to see young peoples lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our vision is planted in Colossians 3:9-10
9 Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature
and all its wicked deeds. 10 Put on your new nature and be renewed as
you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
