Location: Living Springs Camp & Conference Centre, Christchurch

The Abbey is our National Anglican Youth Ministry conference! Get your youth leadership team together and plan a weekend away together to
get inspired, be strengthened and add to your youth ministry toolbox!

This year’s theme is ‘Finding the Way’. Christians have long been called “People of the Way”. Our story for millennia has been one of finding our way through deserts, wildernesses, and the formation of a new movement of love in the early church. Alongside this is the story of peoples here in the Pacific way-finding across the oceans to Aotearoa, and our ongoing journey of learning how to be one family of God in a multicultural society.

This journey of navigation continues today as we seek to find the way of Jesus in our present context. How do we lead and tell the story of Jesus to a nation today marked by incredibly beauty, but also bearing the scars of colonisation and the fresh wounds of unspeakable violence? This is a powerful and important moment for us to get together as young Anglican leaders and consider afresh how we continue to passionately live the counter-cultural way of Jesus alongside our young people.
