COVID-19 UPDATE: The well-being of volunteers and the communities we work alongside is paramount. In light of advice from government bodies and the World Health Organisation in regards to the global Coronavirus situation, OM UK has cancelled this outreach.

We hope to offer this outreach again in 2021. Meanwhile, please pray for those affected by this issue around the world.

This is an opportunity for teens to come to Northern Ireland to be inspired and equipped at the conference and then join the Street Reach outreach to share their faith using what they have learned.

Summer Madness is a 5-day Teen conference, and Street Reach is a 5-day community outreach project following it. Both have a festival-feel run by young people with the aim of regenerating hope on the streets of Northern Ireland.

Summer Madness is a mix of worship, fun, biblical training, sports, studies and crazy outdoor games. It's a conference that brings together young people from all backgrounds to celebrate, connect and explore the significance of faith in today’s world.
And after the conference...the outreach! A great opportunity to put what you've learned into practice.

With a focus on youth, the main activities will take place in communities where there are opportunities for healthy community action.
The work will be carried out by teams of young people from across NI and further afield, in partnership with churches and community groups already working or who wish to begin new projects in the areas.

Activities will include street cleaning, kids clubs, community BBQs, detached youth work, mural painting and more.
On 5th July we will hold community celebration events in the town areas we have been working in.

This is a teen event. Adults can also apply for coaching, supervision and service teams. Contact your local home office for more information.
