Parish & Community Groups

Antioch:

Henley Beach Antioch started in 1984 and has been going strong ever since.

Antioch is a Youth Group aged between 16-22 who gather weekly to share their faith and to have fun. Antioch meets once a week for a meeting and is also involved in organising youth mass at the beginning of every month for 6pm mass on a Saturday. Antioch also helps out with Fred’s Van and many other Charities.

Antioch is a youth group run by the youth for the youth. There are adult supports at every meeting over looking the meeting to help guide the members.

Antioch holds an Out Reach Weekend each year for new members to join. It is a great way to meet new people who all share a common faith.

If you are interested in joining our Antioch group please contact the parish office for contact numbers.
