Dear CYBBies,

Happy New Year!
We pray that this year will be full of countless blessings for you and your loved ones and just enough challenges to allow you to grow. 
If you thought 2016 was big for CYBB - wait until you see what we have planned for 2017. We'd love to see you at our first CYBB Training day. Even if you've been in Youth Ministry a while, this is a great opportunity to network, share your gifts and be part of the CYBB community. It's also a great day for those of you who are new or not yet part of a youth ministry project - come along, meet new people and recieve some sound formation. We plan on having a bit of fun to finish the day, so pray for great weather ;) 
God Bless
Kelly & PJ

The Festival website has been launched with lots of exciting information available!
CYBB is developing resources, structures and packages to support you to join in on all the fun so keep an eye out for more information as it comes to hand.

What can I do right now?
  1. Block out the dates 7-9 December, take time off work.  Make sure you have the time for ACYF 2017
  2. Let your community leaders know you want to go
  3. Rally your friends - don't let them miss out on this opportunity

Need a really good Spotify playlist? We are creating a CYBB top 50 - because 10 songs was not enough! listen to it here.
If you have any suggestions let us know!

This Sunday 15 January is Refugee and Migrant Sunday. This year Pope Francis has chosen the theme "Minor migrants, vulnerable and voiceless" for us to focus on. Take time to read his message here.
2016 was an amazing year! At our last Praisefest of the year we watched this highlights package that includes a sneak peak of what to come for 2017. Enjoy it again here!
