“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.” — Ray Bradbury

Canadian YoUUth… the time has come yet again! CanUUdle 2016 is taking place in Vancouver, BC! We all know we have something to offer, but at times, it’s not easy to see what makes you, YOU! U do U will focus on finding your own bright light inside of you — what makes you illUUminate? Everyone has something beautiful to share… so share!

What is CanUUdle?

CanUUdle is a four-day-long social and business conference that runs in parallel with the CUC’s Annual Conference & Meeting each May. At CanUUdle, youth from across Canada to come together en masse to build friendships, worship together, grow in their faith and build their capacity as spiritual and community leaders. The all-volunteer CanUUdle staff team plan and lead the conference, and work with young adults to create a sacred worship service open to all ACM attendees (see youth and young adult-led service on Saturday night).

CanUUdle participants will join with the ACM community for the Friday evening welcome and keynote speech, the Saturday evening Youth and Young Adult led worship, and for the Sunday morning worship and the multigeneraltional lunch and workshops.
