MYD 2017 Youth Retreat at Whitemoor Lakes Centre

The Methodist Young Disciples (MYD) are hosting their 2017 Youth Retreat at Whitemoore Lakes Centre, Staffordshire from Friday 28th- 30th July. About 102 youths including their advisers across the Fellowship's 30 branches have booked to attend the annual event. The MYD says they have also again this year registered members of the Sunday School aged 9- 12 years, to attend the popular event.


Lovendar Madziya, MYD secretary said; "We are pleased as MYD with the overwhelming response and support from youth, parents, advisers, Chaplain and Fellowship at large. The response from youth surpassed our initial target of 60 people, and we are excited."


Lovendar says "The retreat is an opportunity for us youth within the Fellowship to come together to develop and explore a growing relationship with Christ, and also to know each other better through life sharing experiences."


The theme of the reatreat is "Don't despise the young, instead be examplary" taken from [1 Timothy 4:12" Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity"].


Chaplain Revd Cleopas Sibanda and Revd Mary Sachikonye are among a line up of powerful speakers at the weekend retreat. Besides engaging in structured sessions and group discussions, Youth will also showcase their God given talents and participate willingly in other planned physical/sport activities.


Youth Board Secretary Paida Moyo said: "It is so exciting seeing many youths taking an active interest in Fellowship activities such as the retreat. We pray that many will find the retreat helpful in some aspects of their life, and more importantly our different spiritual journeys as youths."


To create a friendly enviroment and for participants to reflect a christian attitude, MYD produced a Code of Conduct which can be accessed here , consent forms for under 18 and 18+.
