Rooted 2019 will be taking place on 30th March. If you'd like to find out more, fill in the form below and we'll be in touch.


What it's all about

Rooted is an annual youth conference seeking to support the work of local churches. We do this by teaching the great news of Jesus Christ and applying that truth to the issues of our culture.

Our hope is that in addition to regular youth work this conference might help to root young people in their faith in Christ and enable them to grow up walking with Him.

More About Rooted

Alongside the main teaching sessions we’ll be running seminars that will look to address some of the big issues that face young people today.

This conference is a great chance to get to know other people, whether you’re a part of a big or small youth group, this is the place to meet and to get know other Christians your age.

You’ll also have lots to do during the breaks, including inflatables, a board games café, bookstalls, and loads of food to enjoy.

The main sessions will also feature sung worship that will be led by EMU music.

Matt Searles

Matt Searles will be speaking from the Psalms in our main sessions, thinking about joy and trusting God in the good and the bad.

Matt is Director of Training for the South Central Gospel Partnership. He is also a singer-songwriter who focuses on the Psalms, and has released several albums.
