We’re pleased to announce that the Children and youth leaders network sessions at EQUIP 2019 will also be available this year in Welsh.

Make sure you choose which language you’d prefer when you book!

The stream’s sessions at EQUIP 2019 will be:

    This session sees Mark return to his favourite subject of seeing boys and girls encounter Jesus. How do you reach, teach and disciple in an unknown world.
  • Saturday: LET’S GO DEEPER
    99% of boys and girls and young people are not in church in Sunday. Turning that around will require asking some big questions. What are we doing? What’s it all for? What did Jesus call us to do? Will Generation Z ever become part of mainstream church? Come and explore together.

Mark will also use one of the sessions to talk about LIGHTBRINGERS, the new 10-session discipleship course for 5-to-11 year-olds he has been working on with the team at Freedom in Christ.

Upcoming network meet-ups and events

The next Children & Youth Leaders network meet-up will now be arranged after EQUIP 2019 has taken place.

Make sure you book your place soon to take advantage of the Early Bird discount!


The first of this season’s network meet-ups took place on 3rd December 2018, at the Evangelical Movement of Wales Office in Bridgend, and was led by Mike Adams and Mark Griffiths.
