We are pleased to announce the 22nd European Young People’s Conference in Poland! The conference will take place in Małe Ciche, as in previous years, and will last for six days, from Friday 29th of July to Thursday the 4th of August, 2016. Please note that we have had to change the dates of the conference this year due to a large international event taking place in the area at about the same time.
Young People – Attendance Age
The conference is open to young people aged 13 to 19. There will be two meetings based on age. The younger group will be for young people between the ages of 13 and 15 and the older group will be for young people aged 16 to 19.
Shepherding Serving Ones
There is a need for shepherds to care for the young people. Any brother or sister 23 years old or older who has a burden to help can apply to attend. It would also be helpful to contact your country coordinator to have some fellowship about the time. Some experience of serving with young people is preferred but not necessary. There needs to be one shepherding serving one for every three young people.
Young people aged 20 to 22 who wish to help strengthen and support the conference, either serving with the young people or in a practical way, can also apply. These applications are not automatically accepted, but are considered according to the need. Your coordinator will let you know if you have been accepted.
Parents and Children’s Conference
This year there will also be a conference for parents and children, which will run concurrently. The purpose of this will be for the parents to get into the fellowship regarding raising up the next generation for the church life, and for the children to be with other children from all over Europe. Children aged 4-12 may attend the children’s conference if registering with parents /guardians. Space will also be provided where parents can care for children who are younger than 4. Please visit Parents and Children’s Conference announcement page for more information.
There is also a great need for brothers and sisters to serve as workers in the many activities which are carried out during the course of the conference. It would be wonderful for a good number of parents (especially dads) to come to serve in this capacity. No prior experience of serving with young people is required, although the ability to coordinate with others is needed.
All registrations from all countries should be made through this website by filling in and submitting the online form. This refers to young people, serving ones, helpers, and also families and all other saints. All saints who wish to join the parents and children’s conference should also fill in the online form.
