2016 Theme

The SYG community is made up of people of HOPE. People who see the hard times in our world and are not bowed by them. People who live in a bigger story, and invite others to do the same. People who have found HOPE in Jesus.

This year at State Youth Games we will exploring how we can be people of HOPE in our homes, schools, neighbourhoods, and our world.


How can we be people of HOPE in our homes, schools, and workplaces? These are the places we go every day, and where Jesus calls us to be neighbours.


How can we be people of HOPE in our country? Many of us will live our whole lives in this land, how will we shape it? How will we honour those who were here before us? How will we share it with people who need our help?


How can we be people of HOPE in our world? What is God’s vision of HOPE for our whole world? Will we have an ongoing effect on the shape of our whole world, and what will that effect be?
