2017 UK Youth Conference Registration

This year, we will look at Jesus Christ through the eyes of Peter, his friend and postle. We will also consider the importance of the church in the life of every Christian, and how we can all play a part in serving God and his people through membership of a church. As we mark 500 years since the dawning of the Reformation in Europe, we will also reflect on the life and work of Martin Luther, the German monk who became a leading reformer and preacher of the gospel.

‘That many of the bigwigs hate and persecute me does not frighten me at all. It rather comforts and strengthens me since it is clearly revealed in the Scriptures that the persecutors and haters have usually been wrong and the persecuted have usually been right. The lie has always had the greater following, the truth the smaller. Indeed, I know if only a few insignificant men were attacking me, then what I have taught and written were not yet from God. Paul caused great uproar with his writing, but that did not prove his teaching false. Truth has always caused a disturbance and false teachers have always said, “Peace, peace!” as Isaiah and Jeremiah tell us.’


As in previous years, there will be plenty of time for fellowship and free discussion, and the opportunity to put your questions to the panel. We look forward to seeing you there!


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 ease.

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