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.
