Senior Retreat 2019
August 16 @ 7:00 pm - August 18 @ 6:00 pm£65
We would like to announce a retreat for young people who will complete 10, 11, 12, or 13 in the Summer. The parents of these young people are strongly encouraged to join this time. The purpose of the Senior YP Retreat (formerly called the A-level retreat) has been expanded in its burden to provide an event specific to the needs of young people in this age category as you transition from being a young person to becoming a young adult. Some may go to university, some may go on to vocational training, and some may go to work. We feel having a time specifically for this age group will strengthen this transition.
Some of the goals we have for this time are:
1. Providing Information – Regarding Universities in the UK and Europe, regarding where the saints live, and regarding some of the practical aspects of university life or the next stage in your life.
2. Opening to the Lord – Helping you to open the matter of this next stage of your life to the Lord, following the Lord’s calling, and allowing Him to make His home in your heart in this specific matter.
3. Fellowship and shepherding – Providing an opportunity to receive shepherding from your parents and local serving ones and to fellowship with someone who will continue to be with you after the event. Parents are therefore strongly encouraged to come.
4. Companions – Providing an event where the students can be together, form relationships with one another, and have a sense of belonging. Also, beginning to link the young people to the university students and serving ones.
Please find the details for the event are below.
