Autumn Soul is a national event for young people across the island of Ireland.

It has been purposely designed to give young people the space they need to meet Jesus in fresh ways and encounter the Holy Spirit. But it’s not just about feeling safe, warm and cosy, it’s about taking up the challenge to advance your walk with Christ and serve Him with all your heart.

At the heart of Autumn Soul:

  • Worship & teaching: Biblical teaching and space to praise. Allowing us to intentionally seek Gods presence and opening ourselves up to deeper relationship with Him.
  • Community & fun: Helping young people across the connexion know that they are part of something bigger and that fun and relationship matters.
  • Service: Opportunities for young people and young adults to use their gifts and hone their talents to bless others.
  • Prayer: Space to be prayed for safely, creative ways to pray and communicate with God.

Running the event

  • Access to online content: You will be given a unique access code/url for the official Autumn Soul 2020 website page. This will give you complete access to the full weekend of content: LIVE hosting from IMYC, worship, prayer, seminars, main teaching sessions, quizzes and games (LIVE and prerecorded).
  • Additional resources: Once registered leaders will get access to ideas and different ways they can use the online content provided, blending it with face to face (within government and church guidelines).
  • Internet Connection: With a lot of our churches going online, internet accessibility is better than it ever has been. We encourage you to use your church buildings.
  • Space: A space and a place that is big enough to comply with government guidelines at the time. We would be encouraging the use of the church sanctuary for example as this may be the biggest space in your churches – or maybe its the church hall.
  • Sound/Audio/Visual Tech: Laptop, projector screen, projector, speakers. These are all things you may want to consider to stream the event in good quality.
  • Prayer device: We also require a separate device (not a mobile phone) to avail of Prayer ministry e.g. IPad/Laptop
  • Event phone with camera: There will be times when we would like leaders to film/ record young people doing different activities. Or young people will need to send to you as the group leader. So as to not have content on your own personal mobile, try and source another phone. There will be someone, somewhere who will have a spare mobile phone in their homes and all you need is a simple pay as you go sim card. We will be communicating through WhatsApp throughout the weekend as far as possible.
Check out our Parents/Leaders document which includes advice and suggestions on running the event (page 8 includes three formats you can use depending on your group/access to facilities).

We serve a God for whom ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. If you have a sense that he is asking you to try something and you don’t think you can, then do come and seek help from IMYC (sooner rather than later). As Gillian Gilmore our Team Leader said at the meeting “Do come and talk to us”. We want to help!
