Focus is a chance for our church network to spend quality time together; to pitch in as a family, sharing food, receiving and praying for one another, and supporting each other as we go.

Focus Alive is designed to help you have the best time with Jesus and your mates. You’ll join with a load of young people who just like you are inspired by Jesus’ life and are figuring out how to live that out in school, college and beyond. During the four days, your faith will be turbocharged and our hope is that you’ll leave feeling more alive than ever!

Each day at Focus Alive begins with a joint celebration in the big top where everyone gathers to worship, pray and learn from the bible. In the evening the same happens. Between big top  sessions, the day Is yours! You can choose to go deeper in your faith through seminars, take part in sports or drama activities, go wild at the after-hours venues, and of course hang with your mates, making the most of the awesome food court. From Thai or Greek food to pancakes and ice cream, it’s all delicious! add hang out in exclusive youth café??
