Youth Fellowships (Ομάδες)

The Orthodox Youth Fellowships (Ομάδες) are groups where young people of high school age learn about how to live their Orthodox Christian Faith together with true friends who share the same goals in life with each other.

At Ομάδα young people can develop friendships that will last forever and more importantly, develop a living relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. .

They meet weekly on a Friday night or Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours, playing indoor and outdoor games, singing, hearing and participating in lessons on many aspects of our Faith. Lessons can cover a multitude of topics from lives of Saints, Feasts of the Church, the life of Christ, Bible studies, and how to live a virtuous life.

During the year, various activities organised by the Omathes include enjoyable outings such as bushwalks, sporting days, mini-Olympics and games nights. The Omathes, which have a missionary focus, are also encouraged to support various fundraising events held throughout the year by performing songs, assisting with serving food and drinks, and selling raffle tickets.

The Boys and Girls at Omatha are challenged to develop spiritually by going beyond their comfort zones to visit sick people in hospitals, nursing homes and homes of the elderly. On a yearly basis, Christmas carols are organised which bring great happiness to many homes.

The Omathes also participate in three-day retreats separately in the middle of the year, so as to develop a strong unity with each other and with great zeal and warmth give glory to God. The annual highlight is the yearly retreat held in January.
