NYALC 2023 POSTPONED - Save the date!

We are sorry to announce that after much consideration, a decision has been made to postpone National Young Adult Leaders Conference (NYALC) until January 2024.

This decision became necessary due to a change in circumstances for keynote speakers and leaders.

We offer our sincerest apologies to all who had applied to come. For any applicants who wish to do so, their application will be automatically submitted for the event in 2024.

In the meantime, the President will host a number of NYALC online events for young adult leaders in the Uniting Church. This will include opportunities to begin exploring faith and leadership and to contribute to Act2 – a major project considering the future shape of the UCA. The first of these will take place on the weekend we had planned to meet – keep this dated saved in your calendar – Saturday 28 January 2023, from 2-4pm AEDT.

Whilst yet to be confirmed, the venue and dates for NYALC 2024 will most likely be the same for next year, Friday 26–Sunday 28 January, 2024 at Merricks Lodge on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

We also hope this will provide more time for people to consider who they could encourage to apply for this national opportunity to nurture Uniting Church emerging young leaders in faith, discipleship and leadership.

If you had planned to make an application, but hadn’t yet done so, please email us so that we can keep you updated with details for the opportunities to gather online and in person next year. Email: LaraR@nat.uca.org.au

Again, our sincerest apologies on behalf of President Rev Sharon Hollis and we look forward to seeing you all on the beautiful Mornington Peninsular in January 2024!

The National Young Adult Leaders Conference (NYALC) is an event hosted by the President of the Uniting Church Assembly and the National Chair of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress.

It is for people aged 18-30 who are engaged in leadership in the Uniting Church, in their workplace or community organisation and who want to grow and develop their leadership skills, faith and discipleship.

As the Uniting Church we celebrate the leadership, passion, and many gifts of young adults. NYALC is an opportunity to explore what leadership is, build your leadership skills, and reflect on how your faith shapes and guides your leadership.

Stay tuned for more information about NYALC in 2024.
