NATIONAL WEEKEND AWAY
JOIN US FOR A GREAT WEEKEND!
The Young Life National Weekend Away, now called ‘ROOTED’, is fast becoming a very popular event.
Young people from all over the country will be there to have a great time and hear gripping Bible teaching from well-known speakers Daniel Moore and Roger Carswell. The blend of good fun and engaging Bible teaching provides the perfect environment for you to both relax and to think seriously about God, what He’s done for you and how He wants you to live.
So join us from 9–11 February 2018 at Cefn Lea Park Conference Centre in Wales for a fantastic time. It’s a weekend not to miss!

JOIN US ON A SPEAKOUT THIS EASTER.
Every year Young Life holds ‘speakouts’ around the UK. These are weekends of outreach in cities over the busy Easter weekend where we seek to engage people with the Christian message. Some speakouts run for longer than others so please check the details on the individual booking forms.
We plan to hold speakouts this year in Dublin, Southport and Leicester.
AREA WEEKEND AWAYS.
JOIN US ON AN AREA WEEKEND AWAY NEAR YOU.
Each year, Young Life branches in a set region get together for an Area Weekend Away. These weekends are a mixture of good, practical Bible teaching aimed at challenging and encouraging you, along with enjoyable and fun activities, all making for a great weekend.
Area weekends are usually held in the Midlands, Northern Ireland and Quinta in the North West.
If you would like to join us on one of these special weekends, contact the office to find out more.
UBM SUMMER EVANGELISM.
Have you made your plans for next summer? Do you want the opportunity to witness whilst stretching and developing your faith with practical on-the-job training, all in the great environment of a supportive and encouraging team? Then join a UBM team this summer and get involved in evangelism, reaching families on beaches around the UK, Ireland and the continent.
CHRISTIAN ANSWER STREET EVANGELISM.
Why not get involved in Christian Answer team evangelism events? These are excellent opportunities for street evangelism, reaching people who have never heard about the Lord Jesus in our towns and cities.
