“One X” is a circuit based youth program for year 6–11’s. The young people meet to talk about the big questions of life, the universe and everything…Oh, and God! We chill out, cook, play games, do outdoor activities, worship, talk about theology… Currently running in York and Goole & Selby Circuits.

Step Up!

“Step Up” is the youth synod, we meet alongside the adult synod, but with more age appropriate shenanigans! Over the next few years we hope to develop this into something that empowers the young people, enabling them to shape the church of the future.
