YATS

YATS (Young Adults in Transition)

YATS Registration for the Annual Meeting: Online Registration Form

YATS are young adults, post-high school, up to 30 years of age. The purpose of YATS programs is to allow young adults to continue their participation in the United Church.

YATS gatherings create a supportive community grounded in faithful action, openness and a desire for spiritual growth. Together we empower, welcome and accept ALL people as children of God.

London Conference makes sure that Young Adults know they are a vital part of our Conference. That is why every year YATS are invited to participate at our Annual Meetings. As full voting members of the Court, YATS are encouraged to speak up, share their questions and their ideas.

The 92nd Annual Meeting of London Conference is from Friday, May 27 to Sunday, May 29, 2016. The theme will be Travelling Along With You. The meeting will be held at the Hellenic Community Centre (133 Southdale Rd. W. London, Ontario map).


Voluntary Three-Tier Pricing System

London Conference has had a long history of providing affordable Faith Formation programs for children, youth and young adults (so that program costs do not determine who can participate). Financial support from London Conference has kept fees down despite rising program costs.

Knowing that families have different financial realities, we are offering a Voluntary Three-Tier Pricing System. Participants can choose the tier that is most suitable for their family/budget. The Voluntary Three-Tier Pricing System allows us to continue to offer the same low fees for programs, while acknowledging the true cost. The more people who are able to contribute to Tiers II and III the more we are able to offer financial assistance to those in need.

You can choose from:

  • Tier I: $165 - our historically subsidized rate.
  • Tier II: $185 - our partially subsidized rate for those who can pay a little more but still cannot afford the actual cost of the program.
  • Tier III: $205 - the rate that most closely accounts for the actual cost of the program.

Please Note: The Voluntary Three-Tier Pricing System is completely voluntary and confidential. This program is an opportunity for families and individuals to take an active role in supporting the true costs of London Conference Ministries.

For financial assistance information please contact your home church or your Presbytery Secretary. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Betsy Exley at 519-672-1930 ext. 104 or by email at betsy@londonconference.ca.
