Session directing couple

We are so excited to welcome you to FSY 2022!

Whether you are new to all of this, or whether you have been to FSY before, we hope you will join us and be a part of something special.

The London session team is already working hard behind the scenes with each of you in mind. Come prepared to have lots of fun, to learn from one another, to strengthen your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost.

The Youth theme chosen for 2022 is as follows:

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

With everything that we’ve all been through in recent times, this theme is one of those quiet and reassuring reminders that the Lord sees the end from the beginning and has a plan for each for us.

Please don’t worry if this is your first FSY. There will be so many of us in the same boat and we are going to do everything we can to make it an awesome experience for everybody.

With love,

Sam and Jen

Costs

The participant fee for FSY is £75.00.
This covers food, accommodation and all conference materials (manual, Tote bag, T-shirt, ...).
According to the number of active youth in a stake, the Area Office retains a portion of the allocated LUBA amount each quarter to help fund FSY conferences.
Youth or their families respectively will only have to pay £75.00.

This also applies to the youth who are not members of the Church, but attend on the invitation of their friends from invited stakes/districts. Those youth are also included in the bus transport.
Youth from other stakes/districts have to organise and pay for their own journeys.

FSY is for all youth in the eligible age group.
We recognise that individual family circumstances will vary and we do not want FSY attendance to present a financial burden to any family or individual regardless of the number of children they have wishing to attend.

Families and individuals should work together with their Bishop to find a solution allowing all youth to attend.
If you need any further help or advice, please contact your FSY Administrators.

£75.00 for each participant of the invited stakes/districts should be paid into the ward/branch bank account BEFORE THE BISHOP/BRANCH PRESIDENT SIGNS THE REGISTRATION FORM.
Participants, including non-member youth from outside invited stakes, will pay the full amount of £330.00 The session administrators will contact you about how to do this.
