Xtend is back in 2021!    We missed it in 2020, but we’re back on track for July this year -  make sure you come and join us!   

Mark the dates now for July 12 – 17 in Hamilton!     Xtend offers you an amazing opportunity to get together with hundreds of other teens to grow your faith to the next level.   It will encourage you to take some risks for God and to grow closer to Him, as well as extending your faith, character, friendships and awareness of how you are gifted to serve.   Register for Xtend from April 15 -  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, (or the equivalent of Year 14 for 2021 as they missed out in 2020), 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 12 July, 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 17 July.


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


See you there!
