Founded back in 2007 by a group of young people, UKYC is a fantastic opportunity to meet around the Word of God. We were thrilled to bring UKYC back for 2023.
The theme for UKYC 2023 was - Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, taken from Exodus 14:13, where Moses speaks to the people of God's deliverance from the Egyptians.
Through our studies we looked at individuals who stood by faith with loyalty and strength. These characters continually looked forward to the fulfilment of God’s promises keeping his glorious Kingdom in mind.
Bro. Mark Johnson (UK), Bro. Andrew Bramhill (UK) and Bro. Luke Whitehouse (Uk) joined us for the week and led our studies.
Moses stands out as one of the great men of faith in scripture and was with our Lord Jesus at the transfiguration, Bro. Mark Johnson took us through events in his life. He is described as very meek above all the men on the face of the earth and lived an amazingly full life reaching the age of 120 years in service to God.
Our aim for the week was to get closer to his character and learn the lessons from his life as he stood before the burning bush, talked with Pharaoh, walked through the waters of the Red Sea and sat with his hands aloft to defeat Israel’s enemies.
Moses brought God’s people through the wilderness wanderings to the edge of the promised land and died not being able to enter in. He stood still and saw the salvation of the LORD esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.
The word of God is no ordinary book. It has sufficient information and power to make us wise unto salvation, but for that happen the reader must let the word transform their lives. When the Lord Jesus spoke to men and women, he was like no other teacher, before or since. He spoke with authority because he spoke the things of God. Even his enemies declared, ‘No one ever spoke like this man!’
Getting to know the words of Jesus is necessary for all his followers, but knowing what he said is not the same as absorbing his message, Bro. Andrew Bramhill helped us explore these messages. When properly understood even the most basic of his teachings must change us, from sons and daughters of Adam into children of God. In our studies we looked again at well-known sayings of Jesus to make sure we get the message. And once it is properly understood we should prepare to be transformed.
In this series we thought about many different practical aspects of our lives in Christ and the transforming power of the gospel.
Bro Luke Whitehouse travelled through the heritages laid out within the word of God. In particular, ancestral heritages vital for a monarch to claim their throne. They must be able to trace their royal lineage right through the ages of history.
When it comes to the Messiah, we see the most important bloodline of them all: The ancestry of Judah. Yet, when we trace the dynasty of this remarkable family, we find stories of betrayal, murder, honour, courage and redemption.
A broken and complex line that ultimately finds its way to the womb of Mary, by the power of grace. Beautifully woven into this mysterious line are five women, each of which endured trauma and heartache. Yet, the entire future of Messiah’s bloodline was to hang on the testimony of these five women. In their anguish they became titans of faith. And in their loyalty, we see the Bride of Christ.
'...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 2023 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.
We'll add a full program later, but here's what you can expect for UKYC 2023:
|09:00||Bible Study 1|
|10:30||Bible Study 2|
|14:00||Afternoon Activities and Free Time|
|22:00||Supper and Hymn Singing|
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 2023.
We have therefore kept the guidelines to the minimum that we believe are required:
Above all, please remember the aims of UKYC!
UKYC will be held at the Pioneer Centre in Shropshire, a beautiful county in central England. The Pioneer Centre is a modern, purpose-built conference centre; we have booked the entire venue.
The Pioneer Centre was highly popular with delegates at previous UKYCs, and in particular offers fantastic communal space for enjoying each other's company during free time.
A map showing the location of the Pioneer Centre is available here.
