Seonaid Knox reports from the 2018 National Youth Assembly at Gartmore House.


ON Friday August 17, 80 delegates aged from 17 to 25 arrived at Gartmore House in Stirlingshire for the National Youth Assembly of 2018.

The residential event, which ended on Monday August 20, looked at three topics: End of Life issues, Being Ecumenical, and Social Media. These topics were discussed over the course of the weekend with speakers giving presentations before the delegates looked at the subjects in their small groups and then as a full Assembly. Alongside the discussions, the delegates participated in workshops, worship, ‘big chats’, consumed lots of cake and hot chocolate, and jigged at the all-important ceilidh.

Each year the delegates are split into groups, led by a small group leader, to allow for in-depth discussion before debates. To help the groups bond, a small group challenge was organised for the Friday evening which was fun and served to get the delegates working together.
