Summer Madness is having its 30th Birthday and we cannot wait for the celebrations of the festival to begin!

The festival is running from Friday June 30 to Tuesday July 4, more details available here: http://www.summermadness.co.uk/festival/

This year, again with massive thanks to Rev Canon Mark Taylor, we are glad to announce that Connor groups are offered three main meals for free over the festival. On Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings we will join together to share dinner. There will also be hot chocolate available just before bedtime. AND it is free of charge!

Just let Christina know how many are in your group, which days you will be attending and any dietary requirements by June 1.

Streetreach July 4-7 @ Glenavy

Connor Youth Council will be partnering with Glenavy Parish for Streetreach 2017.

Streetreach is the Youth Council’s local missional opportunity for young people aged 15 and over. The aim of this Streetreach is to bless people and communities in the name of Jesus. This is achieved through partnering with parishes in the diocese to enable young people to serve locally and encourage a local parish in their own mission.

Streetreach will run from Tuesday July 4 to Friday July 7.

Christina Baillie, Diocesan Youth Officer said: “We are really excited to be partnering with Glenavy Parish for this diocesan opportunity. Streetreach has had a massive impact for the young people who have taken part over the past two years when we partnered with churches in north Belfast.

“The opportunity has made connections across the diocese and really enhanced the community feeling amongst the young people. I want to thank the Rev John Rutter and the parish for agreeing to host the team over the summer.”

Any young people from across the diocese can attend and registration forms will be released soon. Streetreach costs £25 with an option to fundraise an additional £25 for resources for the team. It is a residential experience with the team staying together, and this is included in the cost as well as meals for the duration.

Christina added: “We would invite any young people to apply, whether they attended last year or haven’t experienced anything like this before, all young people will be very welcome.” Download an Under 18 application form and an Over 18 application form.
