There has never been a more important time for the church in London to be engaging young people and drawing them into communities of faith.
There are estimated to be over 340,000 young people aged 11-18 in our Diocesan area, yet only 2,000 attend our churches on Sundays. As a Diocese, we need to be doing more to connect with and minister to this generation. Young people are growing up never experiencing the transforming love of Christ, or the support of a local church community.
Capital Youth is an opportunity to be more radical; for people across the Diocese to increase the focus on young people as part of our ministry, and see this work as too important to delegate or avoid.
