- RYD 2011: the New Apostolic Church extends an invitation to the Russian Youth Day
Berlin/Moscow. Two years after the European Youth Day in Düsseldorf (EYD 2009) the New Apostolic Church is organising a transnational Youth Day in Russia. District Apostle Wolfgang Nadolny, who is responsible for the congregations in this region, informs us that from 5 to 7 August 2011, all young New Apostolic Christians from Russia and the surrounding nations will be invited to the RYD 2011, not far from Moscow. The lead minister of the New Apostolic Church International, Chief Apostle Wilhelm Leber, is also expected to attend the Youth Day.
Invited to the Youth Day are all young people and youth leaders from Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, the Ukraine, Belarus and Mongolia. A total of around 1,200 participants are expected. The site of the event will be a recreation complex west of Moscow which offers accommodation for up to 1,500 guests. The rental contract for the facility was signed at the beginning of June.
The Russian Youth Day – a first
“After making it possible for our young brothers and sisters in the congregations of this region to attend the EYD last year, I am pleased to announce that we will now be hosting our very first Russian Youth Day,” said District Apostle Nadolny. He had already announced this news to the young people from Berlin and Brandenburg at their Youth Day in Berlin on 6 June.
This large convocation near Moscow will be a first for the young people of Russia: to date, youth days in this region had only ever taken place on a smaller scale, usually with no more than 50 to 100 participants in individual Church districts.
Any news developments related to the RJT 2011 will be published immediately on the Youth website of the District Church of Berlin-Brandenburg.
