2016 UK Youth Conference

‘The way that crieth down duties is not the way of grace. Believing and doing are blood friends.’ – Samuel Rutherford (Scottish preacher and writer of letters, 1600–61)


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.

Excellent teaching, fellowship and of course, great food! Thoroughly recommended! – Aaron Paul, First-time attendee, St Albans


Friday 8 April – Monday 11 April 2016.


University of Leicester, Stamford Court (formerly Gilbert Murray Hall), Manor Road, Leicester LE2 2LH.
