Youth - River-Tribe-Logo-text.png


River Tribe is a Christian youth group for year 7 to 13 students, part of the Whanganui Anglican Parish family.
We have a team of committed leaders who are deepening their own journey with Jesus, while also leading our young people into a richer connection with Him.
We hang out on Fridays from 3:15pm, youth group officially starts at 5:00 and runs to 7:30pm including dinner. We are working our way through the stories of the bible, unpacking what God might be saying to us and how these stories connect with ours.
We also hang out during our 10:30am Sunday service. In this time we’re focused on connecting with God and one another, practicing gratitude, and team building activities.
