With great sadness, Connor Youth Council has announced that it will be cancelling the Connor Takes The Castle Diocesan youth tesidential which was scheduled for September 4-6 this year.
The Youth Council acknowledges that they it will not be able to deliver the event for parishes as hoped, and apologises to the groups, young people and leaders who had signed up or hoped to attend.
While facing this disappointing news, the Youth Council is pleased to share that it will be running an online event for young people from August 14-16. This will involve Simon Henry from the Church of Ireland Youth Department (CIYD), who was due to speak on the Connor Takes The Castle residential.
The Youth Council is also putting plans in place to share some of the fun experienced at Connor Takes The Castle at this special online event. This event will provide a great opportunity for young people, leaders and groups to prepare for the incoming year of youth ministry across the diocese.
Diocesan Youth Officer, Christina Baillie, said: “For now, we would love youth groups to save the date and more details will be announced in due course.”
