WHAT TO EXPECT

What exactly do we do on a XLR8 Night?

As a first time guest at XLR8, it can be scary walking up to the building – but we promise; if you are willing to take the risk, it will be well worth it! However if this is something that still feels scary, feel free to grab a friend or one of your parents and bring them along.

 

Your First Night @ XLR8

The first time at XLR8, you can expect to be greeted by a warm, welcoming person who will introduce you to some of our awesome leaders, as well as other youth your age! They will do their best to make your first five minutes at youth awesome, and minimize as much awkwardness as possible!

On a typical XLR8 Night, the evening is fairly straightforward…


1) Hangout & Chill Time (approx. 20 min) At the start of the night, we have our Hangout & Chill time where all youth can talk, play a variety of sports, colour, play board games, or compete with one another in Mario Kart or Smash Bros!

2) The Game (approx. 50 min) Next, we play an awesome fun-packed competitive game (such as Capture-the-Flag, Dodgeball, Gargone, Pandemic, etc) and have some fun as a group! If that’s not your style, that’s totally cool – you can take this time to relax & hangout with your friends.

3) Worship & Talk (approx 40 min) After all that fun, we go into a time of worship led by our incredible XLR8 Band, followed by a 15 minute talk on God! This part of the night is an incredible opportunity to worship & encounter God, and is probably the best part of the night.

4) Food & Groups (approx 30 min) At the end of the night, we serve up some form of food & get together in smaller groups of like-minded youth for our youth connect groups! These groups are a great opportunity to get to know other people in a smaller setting, to laugh & have fun, or to relax and talk about love, life & God.

 

Overall, XLR8 Youth is a fun place to hang out, run around, play some games, and (if you choose) to get to know people and make new friends. It’s pretty sweet, and we’d love to see you there!

WHY COME TO XLR8?

Three simple reasons to not-miss out on youth!

Reason #1

Fun-Packed Events

If there’s one thing we love, that’s having some fun – everything we do at  youth is crafted in such that there is something awesome for every person!

Each of our events features time to play games, relax & hangout; as well as an epic team game, worship, and a talk.

Reason #2

Awesome People

What makes XLR8 so special is the people – and we may be biased, but we think we have some pretty awesome people here!

Between our friendly leaders & the awesome  youth that come each week, it is hard not meet cool people & make new friends with people who will love you the way you are!

Reason #3

This is a Safe Space

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, how you identify yourself, or how you feel about yourself – you are always safe here!

We believe that every single person is loved & important to God, no matter what – and we strive to make XLR8 a bully-free space where each person can be themselves!
