Join us again for another year of amazing festivities, fellowship, prayer, and talks. We have an international selection of speakers from many different backgrounds visiting us throughout the weekend including our beloved Metropolitan Kallistos, clergy from Orthodox parishes all over the UK and abroad, youth workers, old friends, and Anna Wedlock a multi award winning storyteller. All here to help us explore this year’s theme and to answer our many burning questions.

This year will also see the return of our ever popular ‘hot potato’ sessions, along with walks in the surrounding countryside, singing, games, bonfires, and much more. We hope to welcome participants from the UK, Europe, and beyond.

The OFSJB Youth Festival is an annual event organised by the Orthodox Youth Fellowship for young people (aged 18-35-ish) from various Orthodox jurisdictions in the UK, but open to visitors from around the world. It aims to provide greater insight into aspects of the Church and our life in Christ through talks and discussions, an experience of unity and prayer as well as creating a relaxed and fun environment within a homely hostel and its surrounding hills and rivers. This year’s theme is vocations and spiritual guidance and so we will have talks and other activities aimed at helping us all find our way in Christ.​

The Festival program will include discussion groups, prayers and services, a Liturgy on the Sunday, workshops, games, music and other entertainment, walks and sharing of information on various Orthodox events and organisations in the UK and abroad. One evening will feature a ‘Hot Potato Session’, which is a chance to ask more difficult questions anonymously in a confidential and friendly environment to be answered by the clergy and speakers in attendance.
