SYC’s Annual National Conference (2019) @ The House of Bread at the Mill
Nov 23 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 pm

This year, the SYC team have worked carefully and prayerfully to put together a program to inspire, encourage and bless anyone who is (or about to be) on the frontline of local, transformational mission, and anyone with a heart to pray for and support such things. We want you to join us because we want to see you encouraged and blessed!

Our speakers this year are Kevin & Linsey Potter, ordained pastors with Christian Growth International who have been involved in a myriad of integrated faith-based church and development work. In the early part of 2016, after working 26 years in India, UK, Mexico and the USA, their journey has taken them from the city of Angels on the West Coast of America, (Where Kevin was the Interim Director for Oasis USA, and Linsey undertook two masters courses at Fuller Theological Seminary), to Peppard Common. Until March 2018, Kevin & Linsey were facilitating Springwater Church to develop and strengthen the structure and ministry. In addition to working for the church Kevin & Linsey support various ministries, organisations and other churches in the UK, India and the USA.

So come and be encouraged, both by the Potters and as we hear from SYC team and friends on the coalface of mission seeing lives transformed, cultures shifted, communities healed and society turning around. There’ll be times of worship, teaching and prayer, lots of good food, our annual ‘afternoon walk’, as well as Ted-Talks and workshops.

This year we are back at the House of Bread at the Mill, Burmington, Shipston-on-Stour Warwickshire (CV36 5AF). The conference program runs from 9am to 9.30pm on the Saturday but there is the option of arriving on Friday evening to join us for a meal and a social evening together and, after our day together on Saturday, of staying overnight with breakfast on Sunday morning and if you’re not rushing off, we’ll have a time of prayer and worship together to which you are very welcome, followed by the SYC AGM.

This years conference fees are as follows:

Day Passes: (include lunch and dinner)

Child – £15

Adult – £45

Married Couple – £80

Weekend Passes: (include Friday dinner, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast)

On Saturday an offering will be taken up to bless Linsey and Kevin Potter.

Foundations For Personal, Community and Cultural Transformation @ The Well Church,
Feb 7 @ 7:00 pm – Feb 8 @ 5:30 pm

This course is a catalyst for personal transformation, shifting culture wherever you go and transforming the communities you’re a part of. When Kingdom Values shape the culture of a group or place, people flourish and mission becomes natural; whether you’re a youth worker/mentor, church leader, community member, parent or young person that’s what the course sets you up for. So, what are you waiting for? Join us this Spring for the journey of your life!

 

And Now for Paying Fees!

Using the paypal button below you can pay for one or two people’s fees at any point during the course (the sooner the better so we can pay for materials and the venue in a timely way!)

If you need to pay your fees in instalments, that’s also fine, please have a conversation with the SYC team and we will draw up a payment plan with you.

This course is a catalyst for personal transformation, shifting culture wherever you go and transforming the communities where you exist. When Kingdom Values shape the culture of a group or place, people flourish and mission becomes natural; whether you’re a youth worker/mentor, church leader, community member, parent or young person that’s what the course sets you up for. Here’s what others have to say about it:

Dr. David Williams, Ph.D, President of Taylor College & Seminary, Canada. “Foundations offers students real life skills not only for personal transformation but also for community transformation. Anyone interested in making an impact for the Kingdom should seriously consider participating in the course.”

Chris, Reading: “A good guide on how to further your relationship with God. Eye opening.”

Hannah, Leyland: “It is a great wake-up call that challenges and encourages your thinking. I went away feeling really excited about life and what God has in store for me.”

Rev. Cesar Mendoza, London: “It is a practical and valuable course for every Christian with a serious commitment to growth toward spiritual maturity.”

Keith, Witham: “Amazing! Learned so much about myself… and how to use my Bible!”

Rev. Leon Collyer, Reading: “Transformational. You get to learn new things but also how to join them together and begin to live them out. A great balance of theory, prayer, and practice.”

Lynne, Aylesbury: “Helped re-fresh and redirect me after a difficult year.”

Bible College Lecturer: “I’ve been to many seminars in my life, and the training this week would be the best I’ve ever experienced.”

Vice-president of Taylor College and Seminary, Dr. Terry Fossen, Ph.D: “After more than 30 years of ministry through the church as well as the academy, it is both refreshing and challenging to re-discover that our Lord is not finished with me, yet. [As a Foundations trainer, I have become] excited, anew, about what is about to unfold in the lives of students and facilitator alike in [future] Foundations courses.”

The course is delivered using a combination of talks, discussions and practical sessions, role plays and activities, all finally culminating in a community outreach event.

There are often three streams: a youth stream, a ministry and leadership stream and a stream for the rest of us!

Foundations for Personal, Community and Cultural Transformation is for young and old, both new and seasoned Christians, as well as new and seasoned leaders. It’s for academics and practitioners, and for ANYONE wanting to deepen their understanding and experience of the Christian faith.

For many years Fusion International and Shift Youth + Community have used it to develop their own youth workers and leaders, to perpetuate a culture of discipleship and mission, to facilitate authentic fellowship, and to help establish people of all ages in their faith. The course can be delivered as a one week intensive or one weekend a month over four months.

Annual Benefit Dinner @ Tylney Hall Hotel and Gardens
Mar 28 @ 7:00 pm

We are pleased to be hosting our inaugural Benefit Dinner at Tylney Hall Hotel and Gardens and we extend a warm welcome to you to join us.

We are looking forward to a wonderful evening of pleasant company in beautiful surroundings hearing inspiring stories of transformation and hope for the future.

SYC Inaugural Annual Benefit Dinner

Imagine a nation of hope-filled teens rooted in thriving communities! There’s a new thing happening; have you seen it? Come, join the journey and together help make it happen.

SYC is all about living our best life, the way God intended.

By instilling the values of Gods Kingdom into our communities and working with our youth who are at the very heart of our communities, we believe we can transform society for the better.

Life for a teenager living in the 21st century is chaotic, stressful and often terrifying; in order to change this we need to shift the culture within which they exist. As the leaders of tomorrow, we want our youth to thrive and prosper by finding hope and a purpose.

Our strategic approach to change has seen four communities in the U.K. start to flourish, as we have worked with young people, their schools, families and community.

In Christ, we are of one mind and one body and we must work together to achieve all that is on Gods heart to do  with our teens and in the communities of this nation. 

Our Inaugural Annual Benefit Dinner is the start of a new thing and we are delighted you are joining us on this journey.

Date: Saturday, 28 March 2020

Time: 7pm drinks with proceedings starting at 7.30pm

Location: Tylney Hall Hotel & Gardens, Ridge Ln, Rotherwick, Hook, RG27 9AZ

Cost per person:
