Children & Youth

The Children, Young People and Families Team at the Diocese of Leeds are here to support parishes as they seek to develop and extend their mission and ministry with children, young people and their families.  Our learning area is a hub where you can find out information about useful resources for work with children and young people, as well as learn about courses we run and training events we might be holding in your area.

In 1 Corinthians 12 the church is described as being like a body made up of many parts, and children and young people are one of those parts.  The CYP&F Team passionately believe that children and young people are not ‘the church of the future’, ‘the church of tomorrow’ or ‘the church in waiting’, but a full part of the church as they are right here right now, and as such we want to do everything we can to support children and young people in their participation and churches and workers as they seek to build a church where children and young people are truly welcome.
