9 Ways to Prepare for KYCK this April 

Across three weekends this April, high schoolers across NSW will gather for the KYCK youth conference. Guest speakers Alan Au, Brett Hookham, Sam Low, Andy Stevenson will teach from the book of Genesis about creation, humanity and the fall. Special guests Polly Butterworth and Patricia Weerakoon will also join to help teenagers think through the theme of ‘identity’ in today’s world.  
If you’re joining us this month, here are 10 ways to prepare your hearts and minds for KYCK:   

1. Get pumped for worship with the KYCK 24 playlist      

Whether you’re wanting a shout-out-loud worship session or some mellow praise for quiet study, this playlist is the perfect soundtrack to familiarise yourself with songs that we’ll be singing at KYCK 24! Listen here.  

2. Get your team ready for the KYCK On Cup!  

This year, we’re bringing back our Saturday afternoon soccer competition – KYCK ON! The winning team will be declared the champions and awarded the prestigious KYCK ON Cup!  We’ll also be giving prizes to the best supporters – think apparel, mascots, team flag and uniform. The match will be held the Saturday of each KYCK weekend, so if you plan on being there, make sure to get your teams and supporter costumes ready! 

3. Meditate on the book of Genesis  

Get the most out of KYCK with some pre-reading from the book of Genesis chapters 1-3 to prime your heart to hear and respond to God’s word.   

4. Bring your Genesis friendship bracelets to swap and share with others 

Here’s your chance to get creative with spreading the Word! Gather with your youth group to make friendship bracelets and trade them with others at KYCK! We suggest including bible references to our KYCK theme (Genesis 1-3), our memory verse (Colossians 1:15-16) or the name of your youth group. There might even be some prizes on offer! Have fun! 

5. Rep KYCK 24 with fresh merch  

Our range of KYCK 24 merch includes hoodies, tees, beanies, caps and NEW sunnies! Enter our merch giveaway competition on Facebook or Instagram to win a hoodie! You can also purchase merch onsite at KYCK each Saturday morning from 8am. All proceeds go towards keeping our ministry going. See pricing and size info here

6. Pray for God to work powerfully through KYCK    

Please join us in committing KYCK to God in prayer:    

  • Pray that as the gospel is preached at KYCK, the Spirit will work powerfully in the hearts of youth.  
  • Pray that God will protect our speakers Alan, Brett, Sam, Andy, Polly and Patricia ahead of KYCK, and that they will preach the gospel and its implications on our identity, clearly and faithfully. 
  • Pray that KYCK will be an opportunity for teens who don’t know Jesus to meet Him for the first time.    
  • Pray that teenagers will leave KYCK with a firm trust in Jesus, and that they will be bold and loving gospel witnesses in their schools, communities and homes. 

7. Stay up to date with KYCK on socials and the KCC One app
