We’re so excited to be running a programme to support churches in developing their work with young people called Launchpad.

Launchpad is an opportunity for 10 parish clergy from 10 parishes or benefices to receive expert support in planning and beginning church youth engagement. It’s centered around 5 sessions with some 1-2-1 support and a parish visit and is facilitated by program leaders who have been trained by Youthscape, a national youth work charity.

Here is a video testimony from Alice and Josias who previously completed the course.

Contact Leah to find more information about Launchpad.

I am very excited that we are able to offer this programme to churches with a heart to start or restart youth provision. Launchpad has had brilliant reviews from churches that have already taken part, with leaders from different traditions finding it very helpful, especially those with few or no young people in their congregations. Their research shows that the programme develops confidence, knowledge, and momentum for those who take part, and more than 70% of parishes who have completed the programme now have youth work happening where there was none before.
