Young adults exchange with Zambia

Join the conversation

In July 2018 a group of 10 young adults from Zambia will be visiting the Diocese of Bath and Wells as part of 40 year celebrations of the companion link.

The group will join the cathedral celebrations in Wells on 14 July and visit schools, youth groups and parishes across the diocese from 9 to 19 July. During their visit it is also hoped they will engage with young people in Bath and Wells to shape a return visit to Zambia next year.

The planned two-way young adults’ exchange, organised by Maika Scales, Zambia Programme Co-ordinator, will see young adults from Zambia and across Bath and Wells have the opportunity to share how they live and tell their own stories of Jesus in their respective cultures, lives, homes, churches and communities.

Tony Cook, Go Team leader explains, “Whilst sharing these stories, our hope is that we can identify common ground and challenges that affect young adults in both countries, and to use this to help shape the future of church for young Christians in Bath and Wells and the five dioceses’ in Zambia.

“We hope to have these conversations with a large number of young adults throughout the diocese this July, to generate a passion and interest in the return visit to Zambia in 2019. We will be looking for ten young adults, aged between 18 and 25, who will help us to shape, and join us in the proposed return visit to Zambia.”

If you are interested in joining the conversation during the July visit or sense God may be provoking you to be part of the return visit to Zambia in 2019 please email Maika Scales or call on 01749 670777.
