National Youth Assembly 2011 – Love Life

The 2011 National Youth Assembly has now been going for two days and everyone has been incredibly busy so we thought it would finally be good to give the world a bit of an update on what we’re doing.

So far we’ve had debates about the sexualisation of children and priority areas, lots of worship, talks from our guest speaker John Bell, a visit from the Moderator of the General Assembly, a concert by the band Awaken, workshop sessions, a ceilidh and disco and a gala dinner in memory of Robert Paton, a COSY man for many years who sadly passed away last year (you can see more about Robert here).

Lots of sessions during the event are being streamed live on the Church of Scotland website for the first time so come and join us in real time. You can also find us on twitter @cosy_nya and lots of conversation happening using the hashtag #nya11

We will be getting some of the young people at the event to write about it and these will appear here over the next few days (and maybe even weeks) so keep checking back to find out more. In the meantime here are some interviews with our own Moderator Amanda Philip and the Moderator of the General Assembly David Arnott.
