Anchored Youth Alliance


Anchored Youth Alliance is an intentional community of faith for young people from Year 7 and up. Anchored is a partnership of local youth from different churches, spanning different denominations, on the Bellarine, and all our programs are facilitated by volunteers from our local churches.

We aim to create a safe space where you, as the upcoming generation, can come and hang out with a community that is built by young people for young people.

Anchored is a place where together we can grow and become the people God created us to be. Where we can make a difference to not only change ourselves but to change the world around us by being steadfast in who we truly are.

Come hang out with our family at Anchored and discover a safe space where you can be supported in your life to become the incredible person you truly are!!! Check out our Facebook page here for more information.

Tuesday night’s girl’s group:

Our Tuesday nights are a gathering of girl’s years 7 and up who meet in a small group setting, where we share our lives with each other and learn about God and his love for us. We meet from 7 to 9pm at Church by the Bay, and a typical night will include group discussion, the occasional guest speaker or video, Bible study, healthy snacks and plenty of laughter. We are open to girls who are at any stage on their journey of faith, and our culture is one of encouragement, sisterly love and acceptance.

Our Monday night bible study is a small group that exists to give youth the opportunity to grow deeper in their knowledge of God, the Bible and being a young believer in the world we live in today. We run every Monday during the school terms from 7pm till 9pm at Church by the Bay.
