Saturday 25th January, 2020
The day is aimed at 11-18 year olds from churches and Christian groups around Sheffield Diocese.
We’re meeting in the Conference Centre at St Tom’s, Philadelphia Campus, Gilpin Street, Sheffield. S6 3BL. (Directions)
The day will cost £7 per person and you need to book before 18th January. We hope your church or youth group could pay for you. This includes your SubWay lunch and drinks and snacks throughout the day, and all the activities.
Young people must be accompanied by a leader (ideal ratio 1:8), young people arriving on their own will not be allowed in.
The day has been organised by a group of youth workers in Sheffield Diocese, alongside Mike North (Children and Young People’s Adviser.)
Due to very limited parking at the campus, you are encouraged to use public transport on the day. Details here.

There is some risk involved in some of the activities, so parents and leaders are advised to encourage the young people to observe the safety measures in place. A thorough risk assessment has been undertaken, and First Aiders will be on hand should there be any minor accidents.
There will be a bookstall available with facility for taking payments by card. To ensure something is available at the conference, contact CLC Bookshops Sheffield – preferably via email to firstname.lastname@example.org – and order it. There is no obligation to buy what is set aside for you. It’s all part of the service.
