Dear Young People,

Although the dates have changed, our God remains the same, and our desire to lift high the name of JESUS in these challenging times is stronger than ever. We trust in faith that God will make a way for us to experience the Church that is alive and missionary in real life* this coming September.

Let us unite in prayer and continue to pray for the effective containment of COVID-19 and for all those affected. Stay tuned for more exciting details! Save the new date and spread the word!

RCIY: Come and See!

“Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace the world cannot give, this is my gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” – John 14:27

A new run of the OYP RCIY Journey for young people aged 16 to 25 begins 27 June 2021! Charlotte Loy, 19, shares her testimony on her RCIY journey:

“I have come to realise that there is always a sense of peace, even when storms hit, when I surrender control to God. I still struggle to recognise His voice and presence amidst the loudness and distractions of the world but I know that He remains the same through it all and will always be there for me… Dear friend, God desires to build and deepen a relationship with you. Will you have the courage to take His hand?”

Know someone who is searching for peace amidst life’s storms? Share with them this testimony and encourage them to take the leap of faith to come experience a peace that only Christ can give 🙂 Sign ups are now open!
