Resurrection – So what?

This is the title of our 2018 youth residential.

We are now taking bookings for this event, please email clarewilliams@churchinwales.org.uk

6th-9th April 2018, the weekend after Easter for fun, fellowship and a chance to explore the Christian faith. We will stay at the Urdd centre Cardiff bay for the 3 nights and travel will be provided to and from Carmarthen. The cost of £50 includes this as well as all food, bowling, an open top bus tour, a speed boat ride, other activities and a t-shirt.

The young people from last year really enjoyed the event. Here’s what they had to say

‘I enjoyed everything!’

‘You’ll never want to leave’

‘Super sensational sleepover’

‘Friendship, faith and fun’

We open the event to young people aged 10-18. Some young people came as part of an existing youth group and knew one another and others came as just ones and twos from churches. However groups and room allocations are carefully considered as well as opportunities to get to know one another initially and friendships were quickly formed.

As the weekend follows Easter this will form the basis for our teaching over the weekend and the young people will take part in daily worship. However we recognise that the young people will all be at various stages on their journey of faith so we offer a very open approach and hope that all young people will have the opportunity to explore, to question and to learn.

Some of the highlights from last year included our speed boat ride around Cardiff Bay and the ‘Camera challenge’ which we will be repeating this year. This involves working in groups and taking a number of pictures of different objects in a timed challenge. We will also be going bowling one evening as well as having a games night in the Urdd Centre. In addition to these activities, this year we will also be going on an open top bus tour of Cardiff and having the opportunity to explore either the National Museum, the City Centre or further explore Cardiff bay in small groups.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch or download the letter and booking form here. Otherwise we hope these pictures will speak for themselves.
