Are you aged 18-25? Would you be interested in meeting with young people from around the globe?

The World Communion of Reformed Church is holding their General Assembly in Germany in June, and there is a youth gathering prior. This will involve Christian young adults from throughout the world sharing in worship and key issues affecting us globally.

  • Social transformation: Social justice
  • Global challenges: Climate change
  • Models of change: Post-Growth movements
  • Spirituality: Praying and Bible study
  • Methods: Lectures, debates, panel discussions

People interested in representing PCANZ are invited to register their interest by contacting Gordon Fitch

PCANZ will cover the cost of the youth gathering which includes programme, meals and accommodation. (Maximum of two from PCANZ will be accepted).

International travel will be at the participants expense (churches will be encouraged to fundraise to support them). It will be an amazing experience well worth the investment.
