National Youth Assembly of the Church of Scotland

church of scotland

The Mission and Discipleship Council of the Church of Scotland (CofS)  invite 1 or 2
young adults (aged 17-25) representing the United Reformed Church to attend their National Youth Assembly
(NYA) at Gartmore House in Stirlingshire from Friday the 16th to Monday the 19th August 2019. "We really
hope someone can represent your denomination at this event." 

The CofS NYA is the annual conference for young adults to gather and share in times of worship, discussion,
fellowship and to think about what they want to say to the wider Church. After the event, a report is compiled
and presented to the CofS General Assembly the following May, letting the whole Church know what young
adults think about the topics discussed. Our discussions this year are Hate Speech, Missional Buildings and
Testimony and Confirmation.

"As a  URC representative, you will be full member of the assembly, able to input into the discussions as you see fit. It
is hoped that you will enjoy their time at the assembly and will develop your faith further
through their time with us. I am sure that you will also enrich the assembly and leave having made firm
friends with many of the other delegates." 

Your expenses will be funded by URC CYW and the organisers will arrange transport from Stirling to the venue. If you are interested, please contact children.youth@urc.org.uk by 30 June at the latest.
