LoCo Youth Forum Information

Greetings LoCo Youth Forum Friends,

We hope you are as excited for the next Youth Forum as we are. Youth Forum is a gathering of high-school aged students from across London Conference. This event is held at Pearce-Williams Christian Centre in April. The Planning Team works very hard to put together an amazing weekend. If you have questions or want more information please contact Betsy Exley.

Registration begins at 7:00 p.m. on the Thursday and pick-up is at 1:30 p.m. on the Sunday of Youth Forum weekend. And yes, that means you'll have to take a day off from school!

The registration form goes online early to mid-January and when it is full, registration is done - for another year. So plan early and SAVE THE DATES.

If you have any questions please email Betsy Exley.

We can't wait to see you next year!

God Bless & Keep Smiling,

London Conference Youth & Young Adult Network

London Conference (LoCo) strives to create a nurturing community where young people feel welcomed, loved, valued and heard. We seek to create and encourage opportunities for young people to encounter the Sacred and find the relevance for faith in their lives through Congregational, Presbytery and Conference-wide community and events.

We are an open and inclusive Conference that invites young people to come as they are, questions and all. On this journey of life LoCo hopes to be a source of support and a companion to wade through the challenges that life throws at our young people.

We aim to respond to the social and spiritual needs of the young people in our community by providing fun programs, activities and events that will allow them to express their faith through their own words and actions; to encourage them to use their individual talents in programs and ministries that interest them in order to nurture their growth as people of faith.

Steve Maraboli is quoted as saying, “you are put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and do it fearlessly.” With open hearts and God being our helper we hope to do just that.

Come and explore the many ways to be a part of the United Church LoCo family.
