The Youth Week happens each year when young people and leaders from all over Scotland gather together for a week of fellowship, worship, activities, sports, and evening events. It’s a fun-filled holiday week with a difference – there’s plenty of time to relax, make good friends and generally have a great week! You’ll be part of a house group, made up of people your own age. This group meets twice a day to discuss study material focused on Bible passages with a theme throughout the week – the theme this year will focus on Living The Christian Life. Each group plans their own worship which they then lead when it’s their evening. Faith is explored with differing views and experiences being encouraged at Glenalmond. The days are also made up of activities, worship and then evening events – with plenty of time to socialise and hang out.
The Youth Weeks are open to anyone in secondary education up to, and including, July 2016; also those under 18 years old who have left full-time education. You must be sponsored by your local Scottish Episcopal Church congregation.
