HEY, PARENTS!

We want you to know that we care deeply about your teens and their safety. Our Youth leaders and volunteers are fully screened and trained.

As their home youth, we believe your teen is at the age where they need an older adult-figure in their life to lead, love, be a good example to them. We do this not just on Friday nights, but during the week, by checking up on them and letting them know they are not alone in their struggles! We want your teen to get the most out of their time with us, and have the opportunity to grow their relationship with Jesus Christ. In order for us to do this, we need your permission, by filling in the online form below. (Note: if you have two or more teens attending The Rocks Youth, please fill in separate forms.)

Please note: this form is not an event permission slip; rather, it is parent permission to tend to your teen/s for the entire duration of your teen’s stay with us as their youth leaders.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in contact with a youth director at 08 6114 7988 or email at youth@therocks.church.

FAQs

What safety measures do you take?

THE ROCKS acknowledges God’s love for all people and our responsibility as a Christian community to extend our love in God’s name to all who come into contact with our church.

An important expression of that love is to provide a safe environment for all people who are involved in our church.

You may be sure that, through careful planning and supervision of our Youth program, we are taking very seriously our responsibility to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which your child may actively and confidently grow in faith and discipleship.

We require all our volunteers and leaders to undergo Volunteer Suitability Screening (VSS) which consists of our team members applying for and being approved to hold a Western Australian Working With Children Check (WWCC), completing referee checks and training modules in accordance to the Churches of Christ in Western Australia Inc. (COCWA) Child Safety Policy.

Risk analysis processes are used to vet all Friday night program and midweek high schools activities.

We welcome your feedback at any time as to how we can do better.

If you ever have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of your child or any other child participating in The Rocks Youth, we would urge you to raise those concerns with a Youth Director.

We look forward to continuing to work together with you to ensure that The Rocks Youth provides the very best experience and opportunities for your child.

What time is The Rocks Youth?

A typical Friday night starts at 6.30pm and finishes at 9.00PM.

Is there a cost?

Most Fridays have an entry free is $2 at the door. This covers the program, as well as a light dinner, drinks, and snacks throughout the night.

What is the general flow of a Youth Night?

On a typical Youth Night, the first half an hour is spent in the foyer, cafe area and outside, for hang time. This is a great time for teenagers to get to know each other, eat food, and connect. Afterwards, we move into the auditorium for an icebreaker game, worship, and an inspiring message, followed by small group discussions in gender-based and year-based small groups.

What is the general flow of a big game night?

On a typical big name night, the first half an hour is spent in the foyer, cafe area and outside, for hang time. This is a great time for teenagers to get to know each other, eat food, and connect. Afterwards, we move into the auditorium for a short welcome. Students are then divided into teams of 5-10 (with 1-2 youth leaders), where they will participate in a series of stations for 45-90 minutes. Each big game night is different, so game stations vary. We do these nights primarily to provide students a chance to invite their non-Christian friends, since there will be no worship, message, or small group portion during this night. Big game nights are one of our biggest nights because of this!

What is the general flow of The Get Down?

The Get Down (TGD) is our small group hangout night, giving students the opportunity to spend quality time together with their small group and small group leaders, in a different space. From houses and church, to restaurants and arcades, each TGD location differs from small group to small group, as it is under the discretion of each small group leader. Please contact your teenager’s small group leader where they will be hosting TGD closer to the day.

What is the purpose of a youth small group?

Alongside other teenagers of the same year and gender, our goal with Youth Small Groups is to do life together with the intention of cultivating a healthy community and growing a relationship with Jesus. Youth Small Groups run with the same 1-2 small group leaders for the entire duration of their high school years, allowing deep relationships to form with other teenagers and their youth leaders.

How does my teenager join a youth small group?

All they need to do is come to a Friday night gathering. At check-in, they will be automatically assigned to the right small group for them.

What is the adult presence of a Friday night gathering?

On an average night, we have 10-15 young adult youth leaders (with valid Working With Children’s Check Cards) present throughout the night across the premises, ensuring the safety and whereabouts of each teenager. Each Youth Small Group is led by 1-2 young adult youth leaders of the same gender.

What curriculum do you use?

We use a mix of ORANGE curriculum and North Point Ministries sermon series, tailoring each series to the needs of our teens.

Will food be available?

Only in our Cannington campus. Each week, our Food & Beverages Team in Cannington prepares dinner and snacks for teenagers. This cost is included in the weekly $2 entry fee. We have water and other drinks available, but we encourage students to bring a water bottle to use throughout the night. Our Baldivis campus does not serve food throughout the night.
