Nelson Anglican Youth

The Nelson Anglican Diocese covers the top of the south island of New Zealand, from Kaikoura on the east coast, across to Kumara on the west and everywhere else in between. We have four regions within our patch, Nelson, Waimea (Tasman), Marlborough and Mawhera (the mighty West coast). The Youth Coordinator's role is to support, resource, equip and encourage the parishes, youth leaders and youth ministries represented within our four regions. 

Our Mission: To have young people passionate about their faith in Christ; excited by the church as an expression of their faith and fully engaged at every level of church life.

'Raising up the next generation with a passion for Christ'




Youth leader support The Youth Coordinators primry role is to be the biggest supporter of youth ministry in the Diocese. Catching up, encouraging, sparking fresh ideas and walking with our youth leaders as they raise up their young people is what we are passionate about.

Resources We have a number of youth ministry resources as well as equipment for youth leaders and youth groups available to loan through the Diocese office. From time to time we also provide training in key ministry areas.

Spring camp  - THE youth event of the year! This is the place where our youth and youth leaders all gather together over one huge long weekend - to worship, to be inspired and encouraged, to have extreme fun, and to battle it out regionally for the mighty bishop's log and cup!
