ACORNCAMPS is involved with two youth worker conferences: a UK-based conference in January, and a Hungarian based weekend in March.
Each January we take a group of around twelve Hungarian pastors and youth leaders to the Growing Young Disciples Residential conference in the UK. The conference hosts more than 300 full-time or part-time youth workers, pastors and children’s workers from all over the UK. For those able to come for longer, we combine our visit with a trip to a local church before the conference.
The aim is simple: to be encouraged, refreshed, trained, resourced and inspired to return to their own work. When immersed in such a world in Britain, it is easy not to notice the rich Bible-teaching, Biblical focus and church fellowship found in many evangelical churches. It is an incredible opportunity for Hungarians to see and experience different ways of doing things first-hand. Over the last two years the Hungarians have commented how much they both enjoyed the experience, and how much they learned.
The Good Book Company are again offering subsidised places for people linked with ACORNCAMPS to attend their annual in January 2019.
If you could contribute funding to support Hungarians wishing to attend, please see the Support financially section.
Each March we join together with Hungarian youth workers from across the denominations for a two-day Youth Leaders Training conference.
