3.15 Mental Wellbeing (Youth Conference)

Christian theology applied.
What does it mean to be a Christian and experience anxiety? How can we use social media in the best way? With biblical answers and practical tools, our team will help to encourage young Christians to be a light throughout the challenges they face on a daily basis.

3:15 Mental Wellbeing (Youth Conference)

Due to social distancing regulations, this event will be postponed. We’re really looking forward to joining together again in person one day! Keep an eye on this page and on our social media channels to find out when the event will be re-scheduled for. Thank you for your patience with us!

Date and timings: Saturday 13 June 2020, 10am – 3.15pm
Venue: Above Bar Church, 69 Above Bar St, Southampton, SO14 7FE

Our 3:15 Mental Wellbeing Youth Conference aims to equip young people (aged 13-18) and their youth leaders on how to get to grips with mental wellbeing. With biblical answers and practical tools, our team will help to encourage young Christians to be a light throughout the challenges they face on a daily basis.

The apologetics-focus and numbering of 3:15 is based on 1 Peter 3:15, which reads: ‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.’

 Our Scripture-based talks include topics such as:

  • Mental wellbeing
  • Social media
  • Anxiety

All talks are followed by discussion, allowing you to make sense of the questions you might have. The young people will be based in one area whilst their youth workers will be based in another; you’ll all come back together at points throughout the day. This ensures that teaching is tailored separately to the youth and to their youth workers.

We’ve partnered with Central Counselling & Training Service (CCTS) and joined together with the team from Above Bar Church as hosts to bring together youth from Southampton and beyond. We’re looking forward to welcoming you and sharing smoothies, chats and a whole load of Pick n Mix together!
