Young people, especially those aged 11-18, are an underrepresented group in our churches. “Young People and the Church” is a booklet of cartoons that aims to help us start becoming a diocese where young people are welcomed, listened to, experience God and engage in faith in every church.
We are asking church members across the Diocese to consider specifically praying for and connecting with young people in their church. If every adult in our Diocese did this, many more young people would feel welcomed and connected in our churches. This is something hard to measure but will have a noticeable impact on congregations over time.
Below you’ll find some resources to your church engage with the booklet – share what you get up to using #WelcomeInChurch on social media and if you have any questions, get in touch with the Capital Youth team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
