MAD, which stands for 'Making a Difference' is a fun-filled residential youth event. This year our focus is on how we can encounter the God of all creation in prayer because of what Jesus has done on the cross.
It is open to all PCI congregations and aims to support them in their youth ministry by providing accommodation, food and a full programme of activities throughout the weekend, enabling youth leaders to spend more time on the relational side of youth ministry.
This is an action packed weekend for teenage youth groups, with a maximum of 35 per group.
