There is something special about sitting down with others who are as passionate about young people as yourself. Who also love Jesus, can share some of their wisdom and ideas all whilst gathering for prayer and a good brew.

This is what our two events are all about. Our hope is that we can connect with other people who have a heart for working with young people across Lancashire. Supporting, encouraging and upholding each other as we seek to see young people come to know God, grow in their faith, and see them impacting the world around them.

Discover more about each event below, I look forward to seeing you there, and please do invite others who work with young people.

Network Evenings

Network Evenings take place termly and include training from a guest speaker. These are brand new for this year, and we’re hoping they will be a brilliant way to meet new people and you will leave feeling excited by what you’ve heard and learnt.

We can find venues, but we would love these to be hosted by youth leaders from churches in the areas above. If you feel that you would be able to host one of the evenings then please do get in touch with Ben on
