CLAY 2016

CLAY header
Have you heard about CLAY? The Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY) Gathering is the Anglican Church’s national youth gathering for young adults ages 14 – 19 in 2016 (born between 1997 and 2002). Our next Gathering takes place in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, August 17 – 21, and all Anglican congregations are invited!
CLAY was created in 2010 as an expression of joint ministry between the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada. CLAY builds on the traditions of the Canadian Lutheran Youth Gatherings to create a youth-centred program that empowers young people and builds Christian leadership. At CLAY we’ll encounter scripture in meaningful ways, experience ancient and modern ways of worship, learn together in special interest forums, enjoy fantastic social events, explore Charlottetown, make connections with youth from all over Canada and celebrate our life together.
We will be experiencing CLAY through the theme of “Not For Sale,” with a focus on three areas: salvation not for sale, human beings not for sale, and creation not for sale. After CLAY, we will share what we experienced and learned with others in our home communities. At the very heart of it, we are children of God, and we want to affirm and respond to God’s grace and faithfulness in ways that are intentional, practical and meaningful.
Youth can attend the Gathering as part of a registered home team. This is a group of young people from a congregation, parish, diocese or other organization, led by a Primary Home Team Leader (PHTL). Along with the PHTL, a home team includes youth and may include additional Home Team Leaders (HTL) and/or Leaders in Training (LIT) that their community sends along with them. For each adult (over 21) added to a Home Team, eight youth can attend.
Online registration opens February 1, 2016. Early-bird registration closes March 31, 2016, and the final deadline for registration is June 30, 2016. All registration and fee information can be found on our website, You can also like us on Facebook (Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth Gathering), or follow us on Twitter (@claygathering). We’re looking forward to seeing you in Charlottetown!
