Presence Youth is a week that is foundational to everything we do as a youth ministry – gathering youth and youth leaders from all around Australia and beyond to be empowered, strengthened and to connect with each other!

For the second year in a row, we took over SydneyTown Hall – the heartbeat of this city – to make ours known: a heart that beats for Jesus.

We had the privilege of hosting speakers that are changing the face of the globe, voices including Levi and Nadia Marychurch, Steven Furtick and Peter Toggs.  We also launched our new single ‘Heartbeats’, a song written by the C3 Youth Band.

I have been a part of C3 Youth for several years, but I never grow tired of seeing the power of God transform the hearts of young people which is exactly what happened during this week.
