2018 UK Youth Conference

The Conference brochure can be downloaded and printed here.

Online booking is now closed as all spaces for the conference have been filled. 


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

** As in previous years, a fully-stocked Banner bookroom will be open throughout the conference **


Friday 20 April – Monday 23 April 2018.
