(School Years 7 – 9)

Every Sunday morning we bring Church to LIFE, literally. For many pre-teens, they are embarking on the biggest journey of growth and development! We provide a service specifically for ages 11 – 13 years old that is separate to, yet runs parallel to our main church services across our three Auckland LIFE campuses.


(School Years 9 – 13)

Epic is LIFE’s youth ministry for all high schoolers. We believe that Epic is a place where teenagers can connect and grow into all that God has for them. We provide programmes every Friday night across our Church campuses within Auckland and Melbourne that are engaging and inclusive for all. We have our own Epic Youth band leading praise and worship, empowering messages that captivate and inspire with God centred truths, sports, giveaways, food and plenty of opportunities to hang with friends, both new and old! We also regularly break into Groups within these programmes which is a time for youth who are at the same stage and age of life to connect and build friendships. Where else would youth want to be on a Friday night?

When & Where

Epic happens most Friday nights from 6.45pm – 9pm at each of our Campuses, in Auckland we have 6 combined nights held at our Central Campus. Bus transportation is available for some areas.


Epic runs chartered buses to and from our services every Friday night.
