Growing young leaders

Bookings are now being taken for the 2023-24 Growing Young Leaders course! This will run each month from October to April 2024, and includes 2 short residentials. The intended age group is school years 9-13. The cost is £60 (and we request half of this from the sending parish). Over 60 young people have now completed the course in the last 5 years, and many young people, church leaders and parents talk really positively about the impact this course has had on young people's discipleship as well as leadership and involvement in their local church. Full details below:



Please speak to and pass on to young people who might be interested.


Andy Harris (Leader of Youth Mission and Ministry)
