WHEN: Thursday, May 25th at 12 Noon
WHERE: St. Paul’s United Church, 308 King Street, Midland, ON
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 17, 2017 


 Arrival and Departure

This year there will be a bus travelling from Toronto (pick up location to be determined) with pick up stops at St. John’s United Church, Alliston and at Grace United Church, Barrie, to ensure that all youth and young adults have transportation to the meeting.  The bus will leave Toronto at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 25th to arrive in Midland in time for lunch and participation in a workshop on diversity. All participants will need to be able to be absent from school or work on both Thursday, May 25 and Friday May 26.  In the evening, the youth and young adults will gather together and then will be with the Conference Annual Meeting beginning on Friday morning, May 26th.   Participants will need to arrange their own transportation home on May 27th after the celebration of Ministries Service. More details will follow. You may wish to arrange for youth or young adult participants to travel home with your ministry personnel or a lay representative to conference. If not, it will be the responsibility of the parents to arrange travel pans (participants 18 and over may make their own travel arrangements).

 

Resource Book

The meeting resource book (with map, directions and other information) including a draft agenda will be available online by the end of March. Please note, if you plan to view the resource book online at the meeting, please download and save to your device to reduce bandwidth usage.
