The Third Ecumenical Youth Conference

Television (Full Length) – 1961

I do feel perhaps that this might be the clue to the problem of living in the space age; that in exactly the same way, God is drawing the nations of the Earth together by the miracles of modern technology, so that we can learn to be one family, so that we can see his purpose for our life, and learn by faith to break down the barriers that divide us, and finally, to be at one with him, and one another.
– Reverend Gavin Yates
We belonged to many different churches and we had to learn to talk about our differences, and about the things we share.
– Reverend Gavin Yates on the diversity present at the Third Ecumenical Youth Conference
Sixteen or 17 of us in each group grappled with the big issues of race, of space, of the disunity at the church — things that matter.
– Reverend Gavin Yates
