For over 25 years graduating students at Christ Church have enjoyed an exciting supervised alternative to the traditional school leavers holiday (schoolies). From 2015 Christ Church Youth moved this trip to Fiji. Our second year in Fiji will involve a mix of service projects, home-stay and beach-side down-time. The trip promises to be filled with unforgettable experiences. Every school leaver is welcome.
Whom: The Fiji Trip is for any person graduating from Year 12 in 2016.
The trip will be fully supervised by Hayden and Nat (Youth Ministers at Christ Church), the Year 12 Leaders, and two representatives from Youthworks Year 13.
When: November 28th – December 10th, 2016.
What: The group will be involved in a range of experiences including serving in orphanages, prisons, women’s refuges, and at a theological college*. Additionally, we will be enjoying local hospitality as we stay in groups with local Christian Fijian families. Finally we will send four days relaxing on the beach at our own private island.
How (much): The cost for the Fiji Trip is $1995 (all inclusive).
A deposit of $999 is payable on registration. Registration closes on June 30th.
We would really like every year 12 student who wishes to come to Fiji to have that option, so if money is a concern for you and your family, please contact us if you would like to discuss alternative payment options.
Where: We’ll be flying with Virgin Airways and spending the majority of our time on the East Coast, based out of Suva.
With: The Fiji Trip is conducted in partnership with Youthworks Year 13 and Anglican Aid.
Year 13 is a gap year programme for school leavers. They have more than ten years of conducting extended trips to Fiji. The year 13 experience is a great opportunity for young people to travel, study, meet other young Christians and prepare themselves for the challenges of tertiary study. We commend their programme.

Anglican Aid is the international charitable arm of the Anglican Diocese Sydney. From 2015 they are exploring ways to support sustainable aid projects in Fiji. We look forward to offering further support to their significant work. You can find more information by visiting the Anglican Aid website HERE
Why: Finishing Year Twelve is something to celebrate. Our experience has been that the Fiji Trip offers a unique way to celebrate with unforgettable experiences, an opportunity to make a positive difference, all in a safe and supportive community.
Jesus: As young adults making big decisions, the end of year twelve provides the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the big questions of life. Christ Church Youth believe that the answer to life big questions is Jesus. During our time away the group will benefit from Bible talks, prayer and lots of opportunity to chat and think. Christ Church Youth is committed to providing a safe space for people of all faith perspectives to consider the Christian gospel for themselves.
