Time for change
A group of youth representatives from each Greek Orthodox church in South Australia came together in 2014 to form the current Central Youth Committee (CYC). The CYC meets regularly to organise community events and discuss ways that the youth of our church can become more involved.
Committee members noticed two recurring problems:
1) Church parishes were often organising community events which either clashed with the events of other parishes, or were not advertised to all parishes, thus the turn-out was low.
2) There didn't seem to be an online platform tailored to Orthodox Christian youth which could provide relevant spiritual advice, notifications about events, and connect youth from all Orthodox churches in South Australia.
The CYC decided to build this website in 2017 to resolve these two issues. Our vision is to provide a space where Orthodox youth can find quality resources to aid their spiritual journey, and to provide up-to-date information about events in the Orthodox Christian communities across Adelaide and South Australia.
The website was launched in July 2018. Feedback is welcomed and encouraged.
