The Methodist Youth Assembly will happen from 13 to 15 November 2009 at Ushaw College Conference Centre, Durham, and is open to young people in the Methodist Church aged 11–23 years.
Youth Conference is now Youth Assembly and is an opportunity for your voice to be part of the decision-making process in the Methodist Church.
We are looking for young people to attend Methodist Youth Assembly, either as delegates representing your district or general attendees.
What is Youth Assembly?
Youth Assembly is an exciting new event for 11-23 year olds. It is a chance to shout about real issues.
There is something for everyone to get involved with – exploring issues in an interactive and vibrant way through sports, multimedia, speakers and conversations.
It’s a chance to meet new and exciting young people, a chance to worship in a modern and relevant way and to learn about and participate in things you find important, in a fun and inclusive way.
The Youth Assembly 2009 will elect two youth presidents – one interim president to cover 2009/2010 and a youth president to start from 1 September 2010 until 31 August 2011.
The youth president’s primary purpose is to enable, encourage, and enthuse young people both inside and outside of the Methodist Church by working with others in the implementation of the Connexional Participation Strategy in the Church and wider society.
