National Youth Sunday

On National Youth Sunday, Bishop Ralph commissioned our first Diocesan Youth Leadership Team to a year of growing in their faith, of service and of friendship.

Youth Sunday - Bishop with youth
The young people are from many parts of the Diocese and will have the opportunity to meet together each half term to pray, chat, learn and grow together. It is a great beginning to finding ways that help us understand what the young people experience as active members of the Church today and how they are protagonists of the future in this synodal time of journeying together

Youth Leadership Team

Young LeadersOn Sunday 25th September we began our Hallam Diocesan Youth Leadership Team. We had a great time getting to know each other and sharing a little of our experience of being young in our own parishes.
The leadership team will be working in collaboration with Bishop Ralph and Hallam youth ministry. We hope that these young people will be witnesses of the Church and minister to other young people on their journey.
Sue, Siobhan and Anya worked alongside the young people who will be commissioned on the 19th November by the Bishop.
