Grade 7 to Grade 8


Our strategic focus is to give students a place to belong without restriction, so they can believe without reservation, and become, without regret, all who God created them to be.

BELONG without restriction, BELIEVE without reservation, BECOME without regret.”

First Tuesday of each month, September to June, 7-8:30 PM in the Auditorium

Once a month, all our BYN groups get together to celebrate and connect. Students are led in music and singing by our youth band. The night also includes large group games, teaching, student interaction and of course, food.


Tuesdays, September to January, 7-8:30 PM

TAG Teams is an opportunity for grade 7 & 8 students to learn a new skill, build great relationships and grow in your understanding of God. Teams include photography, cooking with guys, visual and technical arts, music, drama, and more! Sign up for what interests you! Registration is now open for September, click here to sign up.


Tuesdays, February to June, 7-8:30 PM

During the second half of the year we merge into small groups that are gender- and age-based. The connection between students, leaders and God continues through large group interactive teaching and small group times that give students a place to have fun, engage, have a safe place to share and build memories.



Tuesdays, September to June, 5:30-7 PM in the Main Lobby

Every Tuesday the lobby is transformed into a games and lounge area and is open for students to hang out until the start of youth at 7 pm. Teens are welcome to come early, bring their supper and enjoy some extended time together! Parents, don’t be shy either, the lounge gives you a chance to meet with our leaders and connect at The HUB where you’ll find info about all things BYN.


Sundays, September to June at 9 & 10:45 AM in Room 118

Join up with other grade 7 & 8 students for an interactive time with some of our awesome Jr. Youth leaders. They know how to make things exciting and it’s not just because of Chocolate Bar Sunday….seriously. It’s a chance to understand God’s grace and truth, and how teens, we can live a life of purpose in God’s power.



Every Friday, all year, 7-10 PM

The Landing is a confidential support and recovery program specifically for students in grades 7-12 who just need a bit of extra support through some of life’s toughest struggles. It is a place where students can be themselves, accepted as they are, and learn to find freedom and victory over their hurts, habits and hang-ups.
