National Youth Assembly

The National Youth Assembly is an annual residential event for young adults aged between 17 and 25 that have some connection with the Church of Scotland. Attracting folk from all over Scotland with different backgrounds it's a chance to get together, worship together, learn together, discuss together and party together.

Designed to enable young adults to have a voice within the Church of Scotland, NYA consists of a series of discussions on topics ranging from fashion to politics, from tax avoidance to climate change and from social media to marriage. After the event feedback from the discussions is collated and alongside a report printed in the 'Blue Book', is presented to the following General Assembly by the NYA moderator.

National Youth Assembly 2017

For NYA 2017 our discussions will be on gender justice (in Scotland and in the world), mental health and the future of ministry & fresh expressions. Alongside all of that there will be the usual mix of small groups, workshops, worship, late night sessions and social stuff – it's all very exciting so we hope you are able to join us.

If you have any questions about the event please contact the Mission and Discipleship Council office by email or 0131 225 5722.
