KAYO Conference



The Lake Region Kenya Anglican Youth Conference drew over 600 participants including many high school students and recent graduates. Held at Chianda High School near Bondo, the theme was “Be Still in the Storm”. There were workshops on Entrepreneurship, Sexuality and HIV/AIDS, Marriage and Dating, Youth in the Church, Spiritual Growth, Media and Society, Responsible Citizenship, and more. During the Conference, over 100 young people committed their lives to Christ and one young woman received a dramatic healing of a chronic disease. An international team from SOMA UK, Egypt, and Uganda, joined the local youth coordinators along with over 30 youth counsellors and bishops from four dioceses. During the Conference youth participated in football and volleyball matches, talent and movie nights, and organized an outreach in a neighbouring market, marching and singing through the streets and sharing testimonies. Many local residents gathered and responded as Bishop Wasonga shared the gospel message. For a short video, click here.
