A focal point of our ministry is our connection with, and our support of local youth workers throughout the island. As well as connecting with youth leaders on a regular basis, we run a youth leader retreat called Connected//Ceangailte.
Connected is a 3 day retreat where we focus on getting connected back to our first love and also spend time connected with others across Ireland who are involved in youth ministry. We recognise that we can easily get isolated in our own youth work and ministry and we want to prioritise times where we can get away together and learn from each other, and celebrate what God is doing across the land with youth work.
The Irish word Ceangailte means joined up together, or tied together. With the emphasis being on a positive bond that is for the long haul. We want Connected//Ceangailte to be a time and space where youth work across Ireland can feel more tied and interwoven together. We believe this happens best when relationships are deepened by spending quality time with God and quality time with each other in prayer and worship.
