United Youth making an impact around the Australia Territory

The worship night at North Brisbane Salvos was a vibrant and energetic event on the United Youth calendar.


The Salvation Army’s United Youth events continue to go from strength to strength at gatherings across the country.


About 100 young people participated in a United Youth and Young Adults Worship Night at North Brisbane Salvos on Friday 24 May. The evening was the largest of its kind in Queensland yet.


“Our youth and young adult leaders across Brisbane are intentional about creating opportunities for our young people to meet together,” explains Leisa Humbley, Youth and Young Adults Secretary.


“This combined event is a great opportunity for our youth and young adults to have some fun and fellowship together, making meaningful connections with each other and with Jesus.”

National Youth and Young Adult Secretary Team Leader Adam Purcell (centre) was the guest speaker at the Queensland event.

The guest speaker was Adam Purcell, National Youth and Young Adult Secretary Team Leader. Young people could respond by sharing in prayer, praying with a leader, or by writing on a prayer card that they could take with them to remind them of God’s peace, as promised in Philippians 4:6.


These events also significantly impact social media, with the promotional reel for the event reaching 2605 accounts and being viewed more than 4200 times.


“Online connections are an integral part of our young people’s lives,” Leisa says. “We intentionally use this platform to connect and invite young people to experience stronger, deeper connections by coming along to events like United.”


Canberra event

Meanwhile, the first United Youth and Young Adult event was launched in Canberra recently to gather young people from a number of corps.


“There is amazing unity being created organically through expressions partnering together for young people down there,” says Lauren Lukier, Youth and Young Adults Secretary.


“Holding an event like United was a way to acknowledge what is already happening, but also build towards a preferred future.”


Twenty-five people gathered at Gungahlin Salvos, where Woden, Tuggeranong and Canberra City joined in for a night of food, glow games and a devotion time, with a small team from Sydney facilitating the night.
