The Mainland Regional Youth Club is made up of youth from the various Reformed Churches within the South Island of New Zealand.

The Mainland Regional Youth Committee (MRYC) organise events throughout the year including camps, mid-year events, bible studies, trips and more. In everything we do we aim to encourage and grow in our faith through studying the bible and fellowship with other Christians. We hope that as we grow in faith, we may spread the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ to any and every one.


Friday 3rd till Thursday 9th January 2020


Glentui Meadows, Canterbury. See venue info below.

Camp Topic: 

The topic for this years camp is Prayer. 

Do you struggle to pray? Are you unsure of what to say, or do you simply become distracted after a couple of seconds?  Be comforted in the fact that you are not alone. Many of us have a similar battle. 

Yet prayer is vital for our christian lives. We have a mediator, Jesus Christ, who brings our requests before the throne of God above. Prayer is a tool we cannot take for granted. We must harness it and use this gift that God has given us. 

Come along to be challenged and encouraged


Camp Speaker: 

We are excited to have Pastor Albert Couperus from the Reformed Church of Rangiora leading the studies for camp. 

Pastor Albert is the presbytery liaison for the MRYC and has been very involved with us as a committee. We appreciate his wisdom and are looking forward to hearing him speak about prayer at camp. 

He lives in Rangiora (20 minutes North of Christchurch) with his wife, 4 daughters and little dog. He enjoys the outdoors and we reckon he'll be siding with the Athletes at camp (but maybe he will surprise us and become a Mathlete?!) 

Camp Theme:

Mathlete versus Athlete. Are you smart or are you fast? Whose side will you take? Sharpen your skills to win the most points. 

That's a wrap! on Labour Weekend Camp 2019!

Thank you!

To everyone who came along and made LWC 2019 so much fun! We'll see you next year!
