A TRANSFORMED COMMUNITY WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE EMPOWERED TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
Streetlight is an expression of local church volunteers around Playford seeking to be active in their community by connecting with young people where they are. Streetlight serves to see a ‘transformed community where young people are empowered to reach their full potential.’ We believe that God created everyone with inherent value and we desire to see young people step into an awareness of their value and live out the purpose they are destined for. We aim to set up an engaging atmosphere where young people gather in order to interact and build relationship, develop trust and ultimately discover potential.
We currently operate on Thursday nights at the Elizabeth City Centre (Cinema Entrance) from 6-9pm. We run various activities for free for young people aged 12-18 including Water Pong, Henna, Temporary Tattoos, Music, Chill out area for chats and hangs, and more.

Ben & Anni Rowe have lived in Adelaide, South Australia for the past 4 years, more recently with their daughter Zahra and son Obadiah. Ben has served as Youth Pastor at Elizabeth Church of Christ from 2014 until 2019 and is currently completing his Bachelor's degree in Intercultural Studies at Tabor Adelaide. Anni has stepped out of her General Management role and has been assisting Ben on a voluntary basis in youth ministry, whilst staying home with Zahra and Obi.
In October 2016, Ben began a relationship with Elizabeth City Centre, which resulted in a space being allocated at the shopping centre every Thursday night to hang out with young people present there. Currently, with the help of volunteers from several churches, Streetlight connects with an average of 100 young people every Thursday night. We wish to see the young people we encounter discover the potential for their lives through the love of Jesus Christ
We have felt God's call to invest in the lives of these young people and church volunteers on a full time basis. Along with support from our friends and family, we believe God will fully provide for our means to live enabling us to build relationships and invest int he lives of young people in our community. Our heart is for God's mission, to see young people discover their potential in Him.
Would you like to be part of the team with us?
Your support would be greatly appreciated in the form of prayer, volunteering and financial donations.
