Discover how to connect with us and other youth workers to keep up to date with what's going on, ask questions and learn new skills.


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.

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. Through two keys events, plus our fantastic mailing which is great to read with a brew!


Coffee Meet Ups

Share ideas, meet other youth workers and catch up.
Coffee Meet ups are a monthly opportunity to get together. They have been running for over a year now, and they been a wonderful chance to meet other youth workers from around the Diocese.

Prayer & Worship Night

For a while now we have felt that God is up to something, planning something significant with this generation of young people. As those who would love to see teenagers encountering the love of God we felt the best place to start is in prayer and worship. So why not join us as we pray for young people and seek God as to how we best reach & disciple them.

These nights are a great way to connect with each other in prayer.
