Big Diocesan Youth Weekend

We’re looking forward to another brilliant weekend for young people from Year 8–13. Our dates for 2023 are 10–12 March in Castlewellan Castle.

The youth weekend is crammed full of activities like laser tag and canoeing, along with other outdoor adventures and the super ultra–competitive Girls vs Boys Saturday Night Live programme. All in the brilliant setting of Castlewellan Castle!

The main aim however, is to explore some core elements of Christian faith: Jesus, the Bible and prayer through teaching and praise times along with small group discussions and activities. As such it is used by many parishes as part of their Confirmation preparation.

The cost in 2022 was £65 per person (£50 per person for Group Leaders). This amount was subsidised and included all food, activities and a welcome pack.
