SaLT (Saint Lucia Teens)
Youth group for high school students
SLE Church (Downstairs)
Fridays 7-9pm (During the school term)
Here at SaLT we warmly welcome all teens, whether your child knows a lot or nothing at all about Jesus.
We come together primarily to learn about Jesus through the reading of the Bible. SaLT also gives teens the opportunity to grow in friendship and fellowship with one another in a fun and safe space.
New to SaLT? We’d love for your teen to join us!

What to expect on Friday nights:
Welcome and Games:
to break the ice and get to know each other.
is the most important part of our night. We want to help teens to treasure God’s word and for it to be at the centre of their lives and everything they do. We split off into year level groups to read, discuss, share snacks, reflect, ask questions and pray together. For those who are new or still settling into SaLT - there is no pressure to say or do anything more than just listening and being part of the group!
Song of Response:
at the end of the night we sing a song to respond to God’s word.
