At theYECuk we'll be bringing together creative thinkers, experienced leaders, cultural analysts and passionate evangelists, with one aim: seeing this nation transformed by the grace and power of Jesus Christ.
You'll be able to hear two of the fantastic seminars, along with both of our keynote addresses. We'll be sending out a survey before the event, where you can pick which seminars you'd like to attend.
