Youth & Young Adults

Our vision is to see every parish providing active ministry to young people and families.

The purpose of our youth and young adult’s ministry is to make disciples. The bible tells us to:

 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20 (NRSV)

We want to see young people decide to follow Jesus and keep following him by following his teachings in the Bible.

Our chief aim is to see youth and young adults become disciples, live as disciples, be confident as disciples and make disciples.

We want to partner with parishes to see this happen. For further information please contact our Youth Ministry Development Officer.
