Gateway Summer Youth Conference 2023

The Gateway Summer Youth Conference at HOD takes place from Saturday 24th July – Sunday 6th August 2023, as part of the wider Discipleship Course running from February to December 2023 in three terms. 

The theme of the conference is “Living Water”.

 Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to,
you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

(John 4:10)


Saturday 24th July – Sunday 6th August 2023

For more see the page on the Discipleship Course 2023.

The intention is that these two weeks of Gateway 2023 will have more of a “conference” format, concentrating some of the elements of the wider course into a shorter time for those who can’t stay for longer.  There will be a more concentrated program of teaching, including invited speakers. 

Daily program

Each day during the two weeks will mix prayer,  fellowship, teaching, helping out, and time together with our community and the other young people – and some relaxation and fun!

We have some invited speakers on several evenings during the conference, between 24 July and 6 August 2023:

Jamie Price – Wed 26 July

Allegra Mutanda  – Thurs 27 July

plus Brother Loarne Ferguson OFM Cap who spoke at last year’s conference.

Want to stay longer?

If you are able to stay for longer to experience all these things, we invite you to consider coming for a longer time on the Discipleship Course 2023, to include these two weeks – particularly if you want to experience the other events planned, including the time of Mission.

How much?

We suggest a contribution of £250, if you are coming only for the time of this conference.
