Provincial Youth Gathering at Assembly 2017

Planned by a team of Anglican youth pastors across the country, Assembly 2017 includes a full youth experience—not just an invitation to a conference that’s really for their parents! Thumbnail Young Anglicans 2017 Flyer

The Anglican Youth Gathering has been organized where youth groups will join the adults for morning sessions and then have their own breakout sessions with prominent speakers, in addition to games and other activities. This is an all-inclusive (food + lodging) three-day experience!

Plus: Chicago Inner-City Mission Trip

The theme of this years Provincial Assembly is “Mission on our Doorstep.”  It doesn’t make sense to talk about mission without doing mission, so we’ve planned an exciting 3 days of mission work in inner city Chicago as a part of this year’s Provincial Youth Gathering! The trip is in partnership with the experienced Center for Student Missions (CSM.org) Chicago center.

The Assembly Gathering ends at 1pm on Friday, June 30. We’ll move our group to the mission base of CSM Chicago where we’ll get settled and then begin briefing by 5pm. Our hosts will then guide us through a prayer tour through the neighborhoods we’ll be working with. On Sunday morning we’ll split up to worship with neighborhood congregations.

We’ll spend the next three days ministering to the people of the neighborhoods. Eating lunches with the homeless people we encounter, working with local churches and immersing ourselves in communities very unlike the ones we come from! Dinner each night will be at a restaurant in the area where we’re doing ministry, this not only helps us to understand them, but also blesses their businesses.
