Canada Youth is a gathering of youth, young adults and youth leaders from across the country and with guests from around the world that happens every two years. Since 2000, CY has been a gathering place for Presbyterian youth to worship, play, create, learn, dance, act, make new friends, study scripture, share joy, laugh, discover, play crazy games, reflect, pray, sing and share. CY is a time and a place to celebrate youth, and youth ministry in The Presbyterian Church in Canada.
CY is a quality youth ministry program that is highly valued by our denomination. This event offers leadership training opportunities and a broad experience of the church. The church continually identifies youth, the mission of the church, and leadership development/equipping as essential values. CY is intensely and intentionally focused on these three essential values.
As a joyful response to the call to provide experiences that nurture faith, offer excellent Christian education, equip youth and adults for effective and faithful leadership and service, the Life and Mission Agency of The Presbyterian Church in Canada is pleased to announce that the next Canada Youth event will be held July 7–12, 2014, at Brock University in St. Catharines, ON
