ALF 2023 Regional Youth Retreat in Winnipeg

October 20 @ 6:30 pm - October 22 @ 1:00 pm

Pay what you can

If you are a grade 7 to 12 youth, we welcome you to register for the upcoming region-wide youth retreat, being held at St. Mary’s Road United Church in Winnipeg, Friday Oct 20th at 6:30 pm to Sunday, Oct 22nd at 1:00 pm.

Circle with an open book in the middle of words "Lost in Translation", "ALF2023" and "Missing Voices of the Bible"

A great opportunity to make friends with other youth from across the United Church’s Prairie to Pine Region while exploring the theme through Worship, Song and Inter-active Theme Times.  The retreat wouldn’t be complete without social time — dancing, games, chatting over meals (and canteen treats)! …and then rolling out your sleeping bag on the church floor to dream sweet dreams surrounded by new and old friends resting up for another busy exciting day!

This retreat’s theme is “Lost in Translation: The History of the Bible, How it has Changed through the Ages, and Whose Voices are Missing.”

Whose voices do you think are missing from the Bible? Let’s name them together and see if we can find ways to honour those voices, too.

Invite your friends, neighbours, cousins (the ones you see often and the ones you would like to see more often!)

Haven’t been to a retreat before?  – See: Retreat description for potential participants.

To allow all to attend, no matter their family’s financial status, the fee is suggested on a “pay what you can” scale from full fee of $95 down to $0.  My concern with this payment model is that people won’t be enticed to register early to save money, but I am still offering an early-bird discount.  While that will only affect those who plan to pay the suggested price, I urge all of you to register TODAY, as it is exciting for our leaders to hear who is coming — and makes planning easier when we know numbers early!

  • Early-bird deadline Oct 4th
  • Deadline Oct 11th


We are also looking for leaders age 16+.  Interested?  Apply here.
