Why WAVE?


To Engage hundreds more people

in Newcastle and LakeMac

with the gospel of Jesus

Why WAVE

Jesus began His work of salvation when He came to earth and proved His power over sin and death in His resurrection. His mission is to reconcile the whole of creation to God. That hasn’t happened yet, and so we continue Jesus work of Salvation through the power of His spirit as we tell of Him to the nations.

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in [Jesus], and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Col 1:19-20

We want to engage hundreds more people

in Newcastle and LakeMac

with the gospel of Jesus.

This is a church-wide mission of HBC, pulling together as ONE in this week-long effort to reconcile more of Newcastle/LakeMac to Jesus.

Why WAVE:KIDS?


To see kids and families

won for Christ

Why WAVE:KIDS?


To see kids and families

won for Christ

Why WAVE:Kids

Jesus loves kids too, wanting nothing to keep them from coming to Him. It is an awesome privilege to pass on what we have received to kids - loved and cherished by God. Being late in the summer school holidays, HBC kids and families are taking this opportunity to invite their friends along to something great, and where they will hear about this work of reconciliation that Jesus began. He hasn’t finished yet, He is still bringing people back to God, including the kids and youth of Newcastle/LakeMac.

continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 2Tim 3:14-15


Why YOU

Someone told you about Jesus. It may have been your parents or a friend, but someone told you and you have received God’s mercy - His wrath for your sin poured out on Jesus. We want you to come be that ‘someone’ to others.

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

2 Tim 4:1-5


We’re inviting you to be part of a team that tells

kids & youth about Jesus over a week in January.


We’re inviting you to preach the word;

do the work of an evangelist.

What needs to be Organised?


What needs to be Organised?


Teaching program

The teaching program for WAVE is set by HBC’s Kids Pastor in fairly broad terms. It will be up to Sections Teams (led by you) to decide the best way to teach that program in an age-appropriate way. This is best done with:

  • The same person MCing your section for the week,
  • The same person/character giving the kids talks each day,
  • Great crafts that reinforce the lessons each day.
  • Games and fun activities for kids to enjoy so they want to keep coming back each day. There is a variety of equipment already belonging to HBC that can be used/utilised. Best to coordinate with other SL’s to manage these.

Physical Space

  • A theme and appropriate decorations will create a space (classrooms or tent) for your kids and activities to take place.
  • Chill Zone - A quieter corner in your space with cushions and quiet activities for kids to retreat to if/when over stimulated.
  • Floor coverings (especially in tents) to protect from insects and grass irritations.
  • Facilities for craft activities.
  • A painted calico banner (blank one provided) to identify your section name.

Other ideas:

  • Borrow from others,
  • Collect recycling resources for construction activities,
  • Make your own resources (eg, 10 pin bowling from 1.25L plastic bottles),
  • Craft activities - plan early and collect resources

Frequently asked questions


Frequently asked questions


Can I recruit HBC YOUTH kids onto WAVE?

YES, with the following considerations:

  • Senior Youth in the evenings of WAVE week is their priority. This is where they can be ‘on mission’ to their friends. If they are tired, then morning is when they will need to rest. They are invited to be part of the Evangelism training but not compulsory like for the rest of the team.

  • Teens going into Years 9-10 should be considered ‘apprentices’ to learn the ropes of being on the WAVE Kids Team. Don’t give them specific responsibilities.

  • Teens going into Years 11-12 can be considered ‘senior apprentices’, they could take on specific responsibilities partnered with an older team member of the same sex.

  • Teens mostly rely on their parents for transport so communicating well, in writing, helps these families plan.

  • Communicating with HBC Youth kids is best done via a social media group (FB group) where the parents are invited to join and be part of the communications to the whole section (they’re great at collecting recyclables for craft activities too).

What’s the go with kids with additional needs?

We love having these kids attend WAVE, it is a great witness to these families that Jesus loves all people, even those that are often difficult to love. Should a child require specific 1-on-1 supervision then this will come from a specially recruited ADDITIONAL NEEDS team so your section is not put under strain.
