Global Youth Day 2020

Global Youth Day 2020

In light of the COVID-19 situation, the majority of Global Youth Day events in the British Union will be cancelled for 21 March 2020.  However, the recommendation is that you arrange a community-based activity for later in the year, when it is safe to do so. 

Your mission is to perform acts of kindness in the community and Be the Sermon on the day. 

Not thought of an idea for your GYD yet? Look up the Great British Spring Clean website and either join a local litter pick or organise one of your own. It's a simple idea to bring the youth and your church members together on the day. 
Or you could plant a tree locally this autumn. The Woodland Trust offers free tree packs (order now for November delivery).  You'll need to speak with your local parks authority or council to find a suitable location where you will be able to plant your tree(s). It's a wonderful way to provide an oxygen boost to your community!
