‘Vulindlela’—‘Opens the Way’ to Youth at Anglicans Ablaze 2016!

Special Discounted Youth Rate Has Been Extended! 

Because of our belief in the youth and the pivotal role they play in our lives and society now and in the future, we are happy to announce that we are extending the special discounted youth rate of R395 for the foreseeable future. The original youth/student rate for Anglicans Ablaze was R495; but due to a generous financial donation to go solely towards student registration, we can reduce the price to R395. That means you only pay R395 for your ticket!!! In order to get this deal, you must register and pay at least R50 for a deposit by 31 August and pay the R345 balance by 21 September. If you still need to fundraise for your registration, please download the youth fundraiser letter and grid. Please spread the word to your friends. 

Furthermore, if you and team of at least ten young people are willing to serve as volunteers before and after the conference (for example to help with set up and tear down), you can qualify for the special volunteer rate of R350. Please contact info@anglicansablaze.org or youth@growingthechurch.org.za for details.



Our theme for Anglicans Ablaze 2016 is “VULINDLELA – Open the Way”! We see God opening the way to our young people, to intentional discipleship, to a more just society, to transformational healing, to an end of gangsterism and more. Be sure to check out the video! 

 “So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God, into “the Holy Place.” Jesus has OPENED THE WAY by the blood of his sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The “curtain” into God’s presence is his body.”

--Hebrews 10:20


Why Should I Attend Anglicans Ablaze?
It’s an opportunity to come together with other young people from around our Province and beyond to worship God together, to be equipped through dynamic and inspiring speakers who speak into everyday issues, to go away challenged in your faith, to have fun as the wider body of Christ! The conference features a separate Youth Track and joint workshop times with the adult track.

How Much Will It Cost Me?
We are offering young people (under the age of 30) a very special discounted rate (it is being subsidised by adults) of: R495. For the foreseeable future, though, the youth/student rate has been lowered to R395! But if this is still too much, don't sweat. We are providing you with a fundraising letter.
