What’s coming up

Streetreach 2018 open for applications!

Young people hard at work during Streetreach 2017.

Streetreach 2018 – Connor Diocese’s fantastic mission experience for young people – is now open for applications from young people and leaders.

Connor Youth Council will be partnering with Glenavy Parish for Streetreach for a second year, and the Streetreach team will again be joined by a group of Americans from Christ In Youth.

Young people who have completed Fourth Form/Year 11 can apply for the full residential option, and spaces for this are limited so will be offered on a first come first serve basis.

Young people who have completed First Form/Year 8 can come on a daily non-residential option.

The Youth Council also welcomes applications from those aged over 18 to join in or come as a team leader, there is no upper age limit!!

Parishes can support those attending through prayer, attending the Streetreach Commissioning service, and by helping to fundraise towards their attendance.

Gareth Campbell, youth worker at Lisburn Cathedral and contributor to Streetreach said: “Streetreach is a great opportunity following on from Summer Madness to allow young people to respond in their faith and put it into practice.

“One of our young people Euan spoke about the impact of Streetreach as he was sharing his testimony to our church. It has given several of our young people the opportunity to live out their faith along with other young people from different parishes across the diocese.”

Applications can be completed online here: https://goo.gl/forms/InGvggPaJnsA5Fyl1 or the hard copies can be downloaded on these links:
