Here to help, advise, train and resource you.

Your Children, Families, Young People and Parishes Team is:

Lizzie works with parishes and schools to support work with young people and ensure opportunities for young people to experience, explore and develop faith. She resources and encourages ministers, employed youth workers, volunteers and school staff as they minister to young people. She also helps churches think about how they can connect with and serve young people in their community. In many instances, this involves building links with local secondary schools.
