Youth Ministry

Youthgroup Pizza Picture

We want to help anyone who wants to engage young people - whether you have 300, 30 or 3 young people, or you last connected with a young person 3, 30 or 300 years ago. About 1 in 10 people in each parish are aged 11-18 (see your Parish Spotlight) and we can help you connect. See more...


If you are involved in youthwork and aren't paid, you are part of a vast army of hundreds of volunteers in the diocese. We can help you too, from a spot of ad hoc advice to full-on training days. Whatever we can do, we will, and we can come to you - evenings and weekends aren't a problem! See more...

Employed Workers and ​Interns

We work with a great group of employed Youth Workers, Youth Ministers, Youth Directors, Youth Interns, Gap Year students and everything in-between! There are over 50 in the diocese (the largest cohort in any Church of England diocese) and we offer training, mentoring and support. See more...

Church Leaders

If you lead a church, as incumbent or in any other way, then we would love to talk to you about how to connect with young people in your parish, support those who volunteer and all things youthwork. See more...

Events and Training

We also run several central training events a year. Details of this years training can be found here. 

If you can’t find what we need, or have a suggestion, please get in touch with:
