Children’s and Youth Streams
For older children and young people we have streams led by enthusiastic young adults experienced in working alongside this age group and are familiar with the issues they live with.
- Crèche for children under 3
- Little Fishes for 3-6 yrs
- Bright Lights for 7-11 yrs
- Living Waters for 12-15 yrs
- Ignite for 16-21 yrs
Parents can relax, knowing that their children will be enjoying their streams. Children in the crèche must be accompanied at all times. At the closing Mass the streams will lead the conference to reflect on the theme and they will lead us in prayer and worship.
