Joint Anglican-Lutheran youth gathering sells out

When Anglican and Lutheran youth come together for their national gathering later this summer in Charlottetown, P.E.I., they will be doing so with a sold-out crowd.

The National Planning Committee for the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY) gathering recently announced that the venue had reached its maximum capacity for the 2016 event and no new registrations will be accepted.

More than 950 people will attend the 2016 CLAY gathering, August 17-24, on the campus of the University of Prince Edward Island, which is the largest conference facility available for the location.

Organizers say this year’s registration is a 33% increase over the 2012 gathering in Saskatoon, Sask., and a 55% increase over final registration numbers for the 2014 CLAY gathering which took place in Kamloops, B.C.

All Home Teams who have submitted their registration have received an email confirmation. Home Team Leaders who have questions about their registration should contact the gathering registrar at [email protected]. Local volunteers, gathering guests and presenters who still need to register for the event will be able to do so.

CLAY is held every two years and brings together youth from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada for worship, fellowship, learning together, engaging in issues important to youth, and a servant event that will involve the local community.
