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.
