2014 UK Youth Conference


The Conference is intended for young people over the age of 16. It is an opportunity to find out why the Christian’s is the most serious, but also the happiest life, and to have the opportunity of meeting many young people who hold that belief, from churches across the UK and beyond. Every year, many newcomers find a friendly welcome and feel quickly at home.

Great teaching, helpful books, like-minded people. The more I attend, the more I grow. A great investment! – Borbon Manalang, London

Let no day slip over without some comfort received from the mouth of God. Open your ears, and he will ever speak pleasing things to your heart. Close not your eyes, but diligently let them behold what portion of substance is left you within your Father’s testament. – John Knox.
