Our youth ministry is led by a team of amazing volunteers headed up by our Youth Pastor, Bea Ellaby, and supported by our Youth Intern, Ben Ffrench. We have a lively and active group of around 100 young people typically split into Younger Youth (Genesis) and Older Youth (Space). We come together as one big family for our annual Youth Weekend away in the Spring and New Wine Festival in the Summer.
