Youth Alpha

Location: ON

Start Date: January 11, 2021 - 6:30pm

End Date: February 8, 2021 - 8:30pm

CYFM is excited to launch Youth Alpha!

Every day youth ask hundreds of questions such as: What should I wear today? What is for dinner? Who should I spend time with? Occasionally they ask deeper questions that are often hard to unpack and find the answers to such as: Why am I here? What is my purpose? Is there more to life than this?

Youth Alpha provides a safe and comfortable space to virtually explore life’s most challenging questions. All those aged 14-18 are welcome to join a weekly two-hour Zoom gathering beginning January 11, 2021 from 6:30-8:30pm. To find out more information or to register, please email Donna Ellis or Sarah Bird.


Why Believe? Youth Confirmation Prep

Location: ON

Date: March 3, 2021 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Why Believe? is a new and exciting four-week course for youth across the diocese. It is not your typical confirmation class, but rather an invitation for youth who are curious or interested in exploring Christianity, the Anglican Church, sacraments, and confirmation.

The weekly Zoom gatherings held Wednesdays in March (March 3, 10, 24, 31 - no meeting in March Break) from 6:30-8:30pm will feature guest speakers, including Bishop Susan. Led by Donna Ellis and Sarah Bird, youth will have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God, learn how the Holy Spirit works within our daily lives, and connect with new people. The process of this course does lead to confirmation; however, there is always the choice.

For more information or to register, please contact Donna Ellis or Sarah Bird.
