AICEME Youth Conference – Nov. 3-6
Every year, international youth from various English speaking churches from around Europe gather in the fall to play, pray, listen, and learn. There is much celebration and community at this event. There is also a lot of logistical work that goes into planning accommodation, travel, programming, teaching topics an food. There is wide agreement that this retreat is a great connecting point for our youth and those who lead them. It also serves as a helpful reminder of our need to grow in the grace of Christ. One desire that has emerged out of past conferences is the interest to delve deeper into the spiritual practices. This year’s trip to Taizé is a response to that inclination; the conference will be held Nov. 3-6.
Youth and leaders will stay at the Taizé center, where hostel-like accommodations are provided. We will participate in the regular rhythm of the brothers, with a few exceptions that pertain to our own programming needs.
The hope is to immerse our students in a practice of prayer, worship,community and conversation that will foster further reflection about how we practically pursue a relationship with Jesus in the context of the body of Christ.
We have rented transportation to the conference and we have room for one more person. Contact ANCL YOUTH if you are interested in going.
