Who We Are

Central Youth is a vibrant and growing part of Central Community Church and is a great place for students (Grades 6-12) to get connected and grow in the Niagara Region. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming community for all students to explore faith, grow personally, and have fun. We believe that life is best when we are connected to God and each other. So no matter where you may find yourself in life, YOU BELONG HERE.

Below you will find information about our weekly Youth Experience, our new GROUPS and other events happening throughout the year. To keep up to date, be sure you are following us on all our social media platforms (IG – @centralcc_youth, YouTube – Central Youth Movement, FB – Central Youth Movement, TikTok – CentralYth).  If you have questions or would like more information, contact our Central Youth team using the form below.


If you’re in Grade 6-12, join us every Wednesday night for worship, an encouraging message geared towards your age, and a time of hanging out with friends connecting around God and each other.

In addition to Wednesday nights, we have added GROUPS specifically for our students. GROUPS are an essential part of Central Community Church’s mission to help people connect to God and others. We want that to be our mission of Central Youth too.

GROUPS are a perfect opportunity for students to participate in different GROUP types; community, small and interest. These GROUPS will meet on various days and times throughout the week. Below you will find a list of GROUPS available. To join one of these groups, click the link below.


Overflow is a large Christian youth event for students (Grade 9-12) from across denominations. The event exists to impact this generation with the powerful message of Jesus through creative worship and biblical teaching.

This year’s event will be held Friday, May 27th (5PM-10PM) and Saturday, May 28th (9AM-9:30PM) at Central Community Church (680 York Rd, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, L0S 1J0).

Since the event is local this year, we are making two ticket options available for Central Youth:

Conference Ticket: $95 – includes lunch and dinner on Saturday (students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the conference.)

Overnight Addition: Extra $20 – includes late-night snack and activity, overnight stay, and breakfast. Students will stay overnight at Central (680 York Rd, Niagara on the Lake). We will be staying upstairs in two separate areas.
