Last chance to register for the National Youth Assembly
Published on 15 July, 2016
Registrations for the National Youth Assembly—to be held August 19-22 at Gartmore House—will close Monday 18 July. Young adults who want to attend should book one of the few spaces available now.
The youth assembly is open to young adults aged 17-25 with a connection to the Church of Scotland. It is the official voice of youth in the Church of Scotland.
This year's assembly will install Scottish Youth Parliament member Andrew MacPherson as its next Moderator and Lyndsay Kennedy as its next Clerk. Scotland's youngest MSP Ross Greer, who has been active in the NYA for several years, will also be at the event.
This year the National Youth Assembly will include discussions on:
gender justice (in Scotland and in the world)
the future of ministry and Fresh Expressions
Young people who have participated in the NYA have said it is an invaluable way to meet like-minded Christians and learn a wide range of useful skills.
Tickets cost £85 which includes all accommodation, meals, programme and coach travel from Stirling. For those coming from a priority area parish or needing air travel to get to NYA, there is a reduced rate of £50 per person. As NYA is an event central to the life of the Church of Scotland we encourage everyone wanting to attend to ask their church, Kirk Session or presbytery if they would be willing to pay for the ticket and many indeed do.
If cost still remains a barrier and you have not been to NYA before please get in touch as we would really like you to come and there is some funding available to help.
