BIBLE BLAST will include worship, bible teaching, time to reflect and prayer. This year we will be exploring the importance of belonging to the church family, the importance of what we believe about God and ourselves, what then we become as a result of what Jesus has done for us and how we behave as we seek to live out our lives as Christians.

SMALL GROUPS is a time were we break into smaller groups to talk about what we have learned about life and God and to pray together.

GROUP ACTIVITIES will be activities and team challenges based around the Kilbroney centre and Rostrevor that young people will get to do together in groups.

EVENING ACTIVITIES will be for everyone and include a campfire, glow stick walk, movie and other activities.

About us

Kilbroney Weekend Blast is an initiative of the Diocese of Down and Dromore as part of our objective to support the faith of young people and their families. Our aims for the weekend are to:

  • Grow young people in their faith through providing Bible study, devotions, worship & fellowship.
  • Teach and develop skills in leadership, teamwork and in new activities.
  • Build self–esteem, regard for others and friendships.

The Kilbroney Centre is four star rated accommodation and is now one of the premier centres for youth groups in Northern Ireland. Accommodation includes meeting rooms, lounges, classrooms and a games room. It is surrounded by 11 acres of enclosed grounds at the foot of the Mourne Mountains.

Our staff are highly experienced and include leaders who have both worked on youth camps and also directed outdoor residential centres. All leaders on the camp will also be vetted and trained for leadership.
