May long weekend!...
Please check out the new recent uploaded files and read them for the AGM :)
We are so excited!!!
On February 4th, your BCYAYM council met up in Abbotsford for its first meeting of 2012!! Let me say, that this year’s council is a very special one. First, off they sat through a 5+ hour meeting from start to finish, dedication by anyone’s standards. Even more amazing is that every council member who was unable to attend the weekend, skyped in for the meeting to contribute to the talks.
So far, my Lenten sacrifice has been unsuccessful.
Kim Blair here one of your co-coordinators for communications. At St.Mathew's church in Abbotsford we are having our next BCYAYM Council meeting. At our meeting we will be dicussing everything from the Young Sojourners weekend coming up to our Centennial next year and our annual Fall Conference! :D We'd love to have you join us. Please hang out, eat snacks, and make YOUR thoughts matter for the best Anglican youth event this side of the Rockies. We would love any locals to come on in and stop by.
Come be a part of the movement! :)

Wow, conference 2011 is over. As we return to our lives back in the “real world”; to school, work, our hometowns, let us not forget that we are no longer the same as we were before.
Alex is the current Chair of the BCYAYM council and shares his thoughts on Fall Conference 2011 in Penticton after a council meeting on the 17th and 18th of September.
With Thanksgiving only a week away, I know my mind is already occupied with the happy thoughts of what another BCYAYM weekend will mean; Great fun, spiritual growth, and exhaustion. I can tell that we’ll all walk away from next weekend tired, and if that turns out true, it’ll be thanks to some awesome planning.
