Beyond Meeting and Feeding to Building Disciples
The Association of International Churches in Europe and the Middle East is sponsoring its annual youth leaders gathering from 6-9 February 2018 in London! The gathering is being hosted at the American International Church in London (AIC) along with the International Community Church of Surrey. All Association youth pastors, leaders, and workers are invited to join.
This year, the gathering will explore how we engage with our youth and with others in our congregation after the initial greetings have been exchanged and the pizza box is empty. Through this, we will be hearing from fellow leaders within our international association on ways in which they seek to build disciples and create space for discipleship through missions and community outreach, among other talks and discussions. You will also get the chance to participate in AIC’s cold weather shelter during which we serve a meal and a warm place to sleep for 16 homeless persons (mostly asylum seekers and refugees) in our local borough.
We will gather together for a welcome reception and dinner in central London at 6pm on Tuesday, the 6th of February and finish with lunch at 12:30pm on Friday, the 9th. The AICEME subsidized cost per person is £140 (£200 for non-AICEME participants). This cost includes accommodation and meals. Not included are costs associated with travelling to and from London and travelling within London.
