Having fun at Connor Takes the Castle 2018.

Applications are open for the annual Connor youth diocesan discipleship weekend, Connor Takes the Castle, with the addition of a new VIP scheme!

The first young person to sign up from a parish will gain VIP status, including a free exclusive T-Shirt and lots of perks across the weekend. Applications can be completed HERE.

Diocesan Youth Officer Christina Baillie said: “Connor Youth Council would love to see youth leaders bring groups of young people from parishes across the diocese to join them for a fully planned weekend, taking place in Castlewellan Castle from Friday September 6 to Sunday September 8. The weekend is for all young people aged 11-18 to attend with their leaders.

“The Youth Council has put together a programme which will be a great fit for youth groups in parishes, with sessions led by The Big House; worship; small group time as well as big activities including Soft Arrow Combat and Salt Factory Sports for the Saturday afternoon slot.”

The cost of the weekend is £50 for the early bird rate, if booked before July 2, and £60 after that date.
