Founded back in 2007 by a group of young people, this was our 7th conference, following our 10 year anniversary in 2017. We hope you enjoy looking back at UKYC 2019!
The theme for UKYC 2019 was - Prepare to Meet your God,taken from Amos 4:12.
Our studies were 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) joined us for the week and lead our studies.
Under the heading Hezekiah – The strength of Yah, Bro. John Owen lead us in studies around Hezekiah. We saw 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 see 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', 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.
Bro. Mark Vincent 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 thought about many different practical aspects of our lives in Christ and the transforming power of the gospel.
Bro. Michael Movassaghi focussed 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 considered 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 considered their hope. We saw how we can mirror their actions in our lives.
We considered their writing. On record there are 12 Psalms written by the Sons of Korah. We got 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 helped 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?
'...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.
We'll add a full program later, but here's what you can expect for UKYC 2019:
|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 2019.
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.
