2020 Youth Conference
9 Million Reasons Why
Since 1967, over 9 million unborn babies have been killed by abortion. Join us at the SPUC Youth Conference to explore why these 9 million unborn lives matter, and what we can do to defend them! It’s a weekend filled with engaging talks and workshops. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet other like minded young people from across the UK.
The informative talks offer the opportunity to learn more about different aspects of the pro-life movement through a diversity of speakers who are experts in their field.
Hear moving and inspirational testimonies.
Our workshops will empower young people to leave the conference and be active in the pro-life movement.
As well as being a fantastically informative weekend, the conference is always great fun - a chance to make new friends and catch up with old ones at the bar, or at our popular Saturday night ceilidh!
