About the Expo & Training Day

Fusion Youth & Community would like to invite you to our Northern Expo & Training Day to be held on the 7th of Feb 2009. One of Fusion's goals is to inspire and equip kingdom-hearted people to be able to reach out to their local communities in a culturally relevant and effective way and we believe that this event will be significant in this respect.

We will be showcasing some of our work to date and showing plans for the future of Fusion YAC in the UK. We will also be conducting workshops that will enable delegates to hear first hand from people who have experience in the field. Our hope is that it will be a good opportunity for networking with others from across the region with a similar passion.

During the day there will be opportunities to hear about Fusion's training, youth outreach and more. So if you want to explore ways of reaching out in your local community, if you want a chance to network with other kingdom hearted people, or if you're just curious about what Fusion Youth and Community do, then we believe that this day is for you.
