Thursty & Shift Logos


Thursty is a youth group which runs on Thursday nights from 6:30-8:30. Anyone in yrs 5 and 6 in primary school is invited to come along and have fun with others from the Hornsby and Hornsby Heights community. A typical night involves playing some great games, followed by a short and interactive bible talk. We finish by eating supper and relaxing at the end of the night. Parents or carers are invited to join us for supper each night at 8:15 for a cup of tea or coffee while enjoying a chat with other parents or the youth leaders.

A large part of Thursty is the Bible teaching each night. We’re dedicated to upholding the values of St Luke’s by sharing about Jesus “Biblically, prayerfully and practically”. We teach the stories of the Bible and God’s love for us, while encouraging the kids to live in a way which is honest, loving and inclusive.

The cost for the night is $2, which covers supper costs and any materials used on the night.

I lead at Thursty because I enjoy hanging out with the kids who come and teaching them about God. My favourite bible verse would be 1 Timothy 4:12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity

My favourite bible verse(s) is something I constantly changes my mind about because “all scripture is God breathed” (2 Tim 3:16) but I really likes John 3: 16-18 “16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him may not die but have eternal life, 17 For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. 18 whoever believes in him is not condemned but the one who does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s One and only Son“. And I’m doing Thursty because the kids are cool and the Jesus is cool so they should know both

I do thursty because I like hanging out with the kids and teaching them about Jesus. My favourite bible verse is 1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses
