WELCOME TO UKYC 2019
27th July - 3rd August

Founded back in 2007 by a group of young people, this our 7th conference, following our 10 year anniversary last year, we hope you are all looking forward to UKYC 2019!

Scriptural Theme

Prepare to Meet your God

We're really excited by the theme for UKYC 2019 - Prepare to Meet your God,taken from Amos 4:12.

Our studies are all structured around focusing our lives as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. With so much activity in the land of Israel which has increased in recent times, we are to be watching for the time of the Lord Jesus Christ’s return and want to be found ready and waiting when he does.

Bro John Owen (UK), Bro. Mark Vincent (UK) and Bro. Michael Movassaghi (UK) will be joining us for the week and leading our studies.

Hezekiah – The strength of Yah

Under the heading Hezekiah – The strength of Yah, Bro. John Owen will be leading us in studies around Hezekiah. We will see how Hezekiah is an amazing type of the Lord Jesus Christ. Isaiah prophecies during his reign and speaks about the suffering servant - the Lord Jesus, however these prophecies have their first fulfillment in Hezekiah's lifetime.

On top of his suffering with health, Hezekiah has to deal with a major Assyrian invasion, he sees Assyria take Israel (the northern kingdom) into captivity. (A trip to the Assyrian section of the British Museum, as well as reading the history in King and Chronicles would be great preparation for the studies.)  We'll see in our studies how the Assyrian invasion is a type of what will happen in end time when Gog, the northern invader, comes down into Israel.  

Hezekiah's name means 'the strength of Yah', hopefully in studying him together we'll be able to strengthen our faith in God and learn to put our problems into God's hands, trusting that he is able to work in our lives.

A New Life

Bro. Mark Vincent will lead us in studies that look at many aspects of discipleship.

What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? How is discipleship meant to affect our behaviour, our activities, and our minds? What is the basis for our moral choices? What does God expect from us and how should we be spending our time? How should we approach gender and relationships, our education and our careers? How do we defend and share our faith, and what is God looking for from us as we seek to follow His son?

In this series we will be casting a wide net as we think about many different practical aspects of our lives in Christ and the transforming power of the gospel.

The Sons of Korah - Then:Now:Forever

Bro. Michael Movassaghi will be focusing our studies around the faithful sons of Korah, a family who stand the test of time, a family who from an early age made a decision to follow God whatever the cost. They are a family whose life was defined by one tragic moment, yet despite tragedy they never lost their trust and faith in God. In fact quite the opposite, tragedy strengthened their trust and faith in God.

We are going to consider this family, their faith, their resolve and how they used experiences of the past to help them in the present; how they dealt with tragedy and perhaps most importantly we are going to consider their hope. We are going to see how we can mirror their actions in our lives. 

We will be considering their writing. On record there are 12 Psalms written by the Sons of Korah. We will get to know them, their character, their vision, their motivation and their hope.

A family that has stood the test of time, a family for all generations. 

These studies will help us to consider the commitment we make in our own lives on our walk towards God’s Kingdom. 

Every day they were fully prepared to meet their God. Are you ready? Are you a son or daughter of Korah?

The aims of UKYC

The aims of UKYC

'...do all to the glory of God.' - 1 Corinthians 10:31

UKYC was set up in 2007 by a group of young people who wanted to offer as many young Christadelphians as possible an opportunity to read and discuss God's word together and to grow in friendships that help on the way to the Kingdom.

As we look forward to the sixth UKYC, the committee for 2019 are continuing with exactly the same objectives as they remember that all is to be done to God's glory and according to his will.

Guidelines

Guidelines for the week

The delegates at previous UKYCs allowed the committee and hosts to enjoy serving at the week and we are sure that the same very positive spirit will prevail in 2019.

We have therefore kept the guidelines to the minimum that we believe are required:

  1. The Pioneer centre provides some rules for us about behaviour on the site. These will be covered on the first day at UKYC and we will all adhere to them.
  2. All young people must attend all organised sessions.
  3. No boys in girls' lodges or girls in boys' lodges.
  4. No alcohol, smoking or drug use of any kind is permitted at the conference. As we are trying to create a Godly atmosphere please do not bring worldly magazines to UKYC or listen to inappropriate music.
  5. Brethren are asked to keep their heads uncovered in all scripture sessions and Sisters are asked to keep their heads covered.

Above all, please remember the aims of UKYC!
