Xtend returns in 2024 to Palmerston North!   Save the dates now for an amazing experience in faith and community - you won't want to to miss this!


Xtend offers you a unique opportunity to get together with hundreds of other teens from all around the North Island, and to grow your faith to the next level.   Come and experience the power of genuine community, closeness to God, fun, friendship and taking some risks in your faith journey!   Register for Xtend now -  you won’t go home the same!



  • Life changing times of worship, prayer, reflection and ministry

  • Great discussion and sharing in small groups

  • A wide range of seminars and workshops

  • A loving and supportive community to belong to

  • New and renewed friendships

  • Time out and fun!



Xtend is based at Palmerston North Central Baptist Church, with accommodation and meals provided in nearby churches.

Bus and van transport will be provided where necessary to take you to all aspects of the Xtend programme, including showers.



Xtend is open to anyone in Years 11-13 at College who wants to grow in their Christian faith. If you are still 18 and in the first year out of school, you may also register as a Year 14. Even if you’re the only one from your youth group who is able to come, that’s fine - we provide all the leaders and you’ll make heaps of new friends!



You’ll need to bring the following:

  • Gear to sleep marae style (stretcher/airbed, pillow, sleeping bag)

  • Towel & toiletries

  • Any medication you take

  • Togs if you want to go swimming in free time

  • Water bottle

  • Wet weather gear

  • A Bible if you have one

Optional gear includes an instrument for a worship team.

No need for plates and cutlery as we’ll provide those.



Xtend starts Monday 8th July, and you can arrive at Palmerston North Central Baptist Church from 5pm onwards.  The evening programme starts at 7pm, and we finish after lunch and clean up on Saturday 13th July.



Because XTEND is a great way to grow your faith and you won’t want to miss out on a great community experience.


"Xtend felt like a family to me - it challenged, change and inspired me. It really did grow my faith, and I can't wait for 2024!"
