Lead for Life

Lead for Life is the Presbyterian Youth internship programme. It is a yearlong program for developing leaders to gain training and experience to lead at their church.

Through this programme we aim to:

  • Help build the foundations of faith by providing young leaders with a deeper understanding of God’s word that they might love Him.
  • Stimulate young leaders’ to grow in godly character by helping them nurture their relationship with God.
  • Train young leaders in practical skills of leadership and ministering to others.


Being part of the program involves residential training. This runs for 6 day at PY Summer Camp where the bulk of the learning will take place. The teaching sessions are run by qualified ministers of the Presbyterian Church.

What is Summer Camp?

Summer Camp is 6 days for Youth from all across NSW to gather together and learn about Jesus in community with one another – and have a great time doing it!

Training Day

We’re having a training day for leaders later in the year at GracePoint Presbyterian Church in Lidcombe. We’ll be starting at 11am.

At Training Day you will prepare for your role on Camp, build relationships within all the Teams & grow in your understanding of the Vision & Biblical direction of Camp to effectively proclaim ‘Jesus is Lord’. If you live more than 2 hours away, it’s not compulsory to come (although you’re welcome to), in which case, we’ll provide Distance Training Material.

Date & Time: 11:00am – 5:00pm, 16 November 2024

Location: Gracepoint Presbyterian Church, Lidcombe

Cost: $15 (includes lunch)

Kids Program (0 – Year 6)

PYNSW values the time and commitment that parents show by serving on Camps. For this reason PYNSW runs a Kids Program, for the children of leaders. Children from birth to Year 6 are catered for during Summer Camp. Once your leader registration has been processed, we will send out a link to the online registration for the kids program.

Need a WWCC?

A WWCC (Working With Children Check) is a mandatory requirement for anyone working with children and young people. If you do not have a WWCC Certificate you must apply as a Volunteer ASAP as it may take some time to process.
