Resources for Youth Summit

 

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17: 20-23 (NIV) 

Ecumenical Christian Youth Summit 2018  

The Christian Youth Summit in 2018 in Brisbane was to hear the voice of young people as they considered what meaningful Christian Church collaboration looked like in the modern world. 

It was a unique ecumenical initiative that was inspired by the Catholic and Lutheran Churches joint commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and a desire to celebrate their shared mission within the Kingdom of God. The organising team wanted to look forward and consider what the future might hold for the Churches’ shared mission. It was decided that a Christian Youth Summit should be organised so that the Queensland Heads of Churches could hear the voice of young people and particularly their views on the future of shared Christian mission in Queensland. Teresa McGrath, Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane, and Aaron Glover, Lutheran Church of Australia Queensland District, were commissioned to coordinate and lead this initiative. 

The Goals of The Christian Youth Summit 2018 were:

  • To provide a space for young adults to learn more about ecumenism.
  • To create a space where young adults from various denominations can come together to build relationship with each other.
  • To give young adults a positive experience of Christian denominations working together. 

Ecumenical Program Resources

The NCCA granted funds to a Queensland Churches Together group to produce resources that were accessible to all churches.  

Purpose of this resource

To equip you with all the tools you need to run a successful local Christian Youth Summit experience.

This resource is meant to allow for flexibility according to the needs of each local community. 

It is hoped that this resource will support local communities to host Christian Youth Summits of their own, adapting the content in the resource to make a meaningful experience happen locally. 

Who is this resource for? 

  • Those who wish to organise a local Christian Youth Summit experience.
  • Those looking for examples of ecumenical content and activities to engage young adults in ecumenical dialogue.
