Missed Easter camp this year, but still keen to take the next steps to grow in your faith?

Then get ready to sign up for a life changing experience, happening from Sept 28th to Oct 3rd in Hamilton!  Xtend is back in the September holidays, offering you an amazing opportunity to get together with hundreds of other teens to grow your faith to the next level.


Xtend will encourage you to take some risks for God and extend your faith, character, knowledge and experience of God, awareness of how you are gifted, and great friendships!  Register for Xtend 2020 - you won't go home the same!


Life changing times of worship, prayer, reflection and ministry

Great discussion and
sharing times in small groups

A wide range of seminars and workshops

A loving and supportive community to belong to

Friendships and fun


Xtend is based at Hamilton Central Baptist, and accommodation is provided in nearby churches.  Bus transport is provided as necessary to take you to all aspects of the Xtend programme.  


Xtend is open to anyone in years 11-13 at college who wants to grow in their Christian faith.  If you are the only one from your youth group who is able to come, that's fine - we provide all the leaders and you'll make lots of new friends!


 You'll need to bring gear to sleep marae style (stretcher/airbed, pillow, sleeping bag), towel, togs, wet weather gear, toiletries and a Bible if you have one. No need for plates and cutlery as we'll provide those!


Xtend starts Monday 28 September, and you can arrive at Hamilton Central Baptist Church anytime from 5pm onwards.  The evening programme kicks off at 7pm, and we finish after lunch and clean up on Saturday 3 October.


Because XTEND is a life changing week, and you won’t want to miss being part of it!    


See you there!

COVID-19, What if?

COVID-19 has had quite an impact on 2020! And we want to assure you that we will be taking every precaution for an awesome and safe Xtend for everyone.  We are not anticipating any further disruptions this year, but should something unforeseen happen prior to the start of the event and we are not able to continue as planned with Xtend in 2020, we will make refunds for fees paid with the exception of a small fee to cover expenses that we are not able to transfer to 2021.  This will be no more than $20.
