The Abbey 2018

Are you ready to get inspired, to be strengthened and to add to your youth ministry toolbox? Join us at The Abbey 2018 for a packed weekend of prayer, worship, laughter, new friends and old friends, workshops, keynote speakers, team competitions, good coffee and chill spaces.

This year’s theme ‘Overflow’ centres on how God fills us with His love, hope and power. It focuses on how our relationship with Jesus causes us to overflow with who He is, so that our local communities are impacted by the Gospel. The key verse we are exploring is ‘The mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart’ (Luke 6:45).

Our speakers are really going to bring it this year! We have Merrilyn Withers, an absolute legend in youth ministry, who has a special gift in helping youth workers to minister from a place of health, and Dion Fasi, a well-respected youth pastor, who offers practical tools for outworking The Great Commission in local settings. We also have Hope and Eugene Fuimaono, leading us in an incredible time of worship. This is undoubtedly going to be a weekend of encouragement and equipping. Find out more about our speakers here.

We really look forward to seeing you there!
