This year there are so many exciting events and opportunities for young people. Here are a few which we would love you to ‘save the dates’ for:
PPT+ is a day to experience the full breadth of the Kingdom of God from around Scotland. The day seeks to bring together young people from across Scotland to get to know each other through a variety of outdoor activities and engagement with various organisations. There is a core of worship throughout the day with teaching from various guests, including Mike Pilavachi this year. Come and join us on Saturday 15th June for this amazing event.
20th – 24th JULY
SOUL SURVIVOR SCOTLAND
One of the largest events in the young Christian’s calendar is Soul Survivor Scotland. It is back this year, for its final year with the Soul Survivor crew leading it. We are so excited and can’t wait! It is a 5 day event where teams of young people camp, worship in the big top tent, receive teaching from some of the top people in their fields, including the wonderful Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft. At BUS Younger we are hoping to run, as we did last year, a BUS Camp where we can join as many of our churches together in one place.
Kayleigh Nicol from Leven Baptist Church who joined us last year had this to say, “I went to Soul Survivor with people from my church and joined up with the BUS team and it was great. It was so nice to meet and chat to new people and share experiences at the end of the night and hear how different people engaged with God throughout the weekend. Soul Survivor is an amazing event where your thoughts are challenged and your faith renewed. I would encourage everyone to go if they are able and enjoy meeting new people your own age who also have a passion to know and share the word of God.”
Are you able to join us in Lendrick Muir over the 20th to 24th of July?
1ST AND 2ND OF NOVEMBER
YOUNG LEADERS’ CONFERENCE (Ages 14-21)
This conference will be held at Hamilton Baptist and will merge with the closing session of the 150th Anniversary Assembly of the BUS.
Another event that is taking place this year is the 150th Anniversary Assembly of the Baptist Union of Scotland. To celebrate and to get as many of our family of churches together, we are also running a conference for Young Leaders alongside the Assembly. This includes worship, teaching, and a chance to connect with others from around our family, while also engaging and connecting with God in a new and refreshing way. This conference takes place over the 1st and 2nd of November with an overnight stay, so our young people can really bond as a community.
We hope you can make it to these events. More information about them will be sent out soon.
