About the Youth Assembly


The National Youth Assembly is an annual residential event for young adults aged between 17 and 25 that have some connection with the Church of Scotland.  Attracting folk from all over Scotland with different backgrounds it’s a chance to get together, worship together, learn together, discuss together and party together.

Designed to enable young adults to have a voice within the Church of Scotland, NYA consists of a series of discussions on topics ranging from fashion to politics, from tax avoidance to climate change and from social media to marriage.  After the event feedback from the discussions is collated and alongside a report printed in the ‘Blue Book’, is presented to the following General Assembly by the NYA moderator.

To get involved with the planning for the 2017 event, please book in to our February planning weekend in Arbroath.
