In our society today youth and children move between many different worlds each day. Those worlds are constantly changing; understanding them and engaging with them is vital if we are to work effectively with youth, children and families, bringing God’s word to them in the contexts in which they live. Whether you’re a volunteer Y&C leader, a parent, full time Y&C worker, or church minister, join us for our annual conference as we explore this important area of youth, children & families ministry. The day will include our main sessions together, your chosen seminars and a time to choose between age-related discussion groups and other options. There will also be a chance to browse our extensive books stall and time to pray and network with other like-minded Christians involved in children’s and youth work.
Discounts: There are bursaries available for those who would like to attend but cannot afford the full cost – please contact the NW Partnership office for more information on the address listed below.
