Three churches in West Leeds are excited to be pioneering a new collaborative youth group.
St Peter’s Church in Bramley, Christ Church in Armley, and St John’s Church in Wortley and Farnley are launching a new youth group for the young people in their churches, to gather together for fun and games, to spend time building community over pizza, and to explore faith.
The first gathering took place at Christ Church, Armley and Revd Phil Arnold, Vicar of Armley said, “The three of us have been meeting together for morning people, so it seemed like the obvious thing to work together on our youth work."
Bramley’s Rector Revd Julia Wilkins said, “It's really exciting to be able to collaborate with Chris and Phil. We can do so much more together than we could separately. I’m really looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us as we work together to disciple our young people"
Revd Chris Balding, Vicar of Wortley and Farnley said, “We’ve only got half a dozen young people so it’s really great to be able to do something together. We’re praying that our young people will be able to build a welcoming community, and explore their faith together."
