Young People’s Work


The diocesan youth ministry’s vision is for significant growth in the faith and  number  of young  Christians  with an Anglican identity. With bags of passion but short on resources the youth ministry’s  focus  is  on training  and  equipping  youth leaders to  evangelise, disciple and send out young people in service. We provide resources  and materials  to youth leaders and  their young people, deliver training events, help new parishes and missions to  begin their  own youth ministries and  organise summer youth camps for young people from across the diocese.  We would love to be able to expand these programmes and to help  each of the diocese’s  churches  and  missions  to  have a vibrant and Christ centred youth ministry.

We have recently taken the exciting step of employing a diocesan youth coordinator, something that is common for many churches in North America and Europe but a first for our Diocese! We believe that Lizbeth [photo top left]  has the faith, passion and gifts  that will help  us to  achieve our  vision of growth. She writes: “It is a great blessing for me to serve the Lord by supporting the diocesan youth ministry. I have known God since I was a child but the day I really accepted him into my heart was during a youth camp at a time when I had been doubting my faith. From then on, my life’s purpose has been to love and serve him.”


In Peru, approximately a quarter of the population is between the ages of twelve and twenty five and yet the gospel has not reached many of them. The young  people of Peru  have great needs  but, because of the country’s  poverty,  there are few resources. In this situation, the Diocese of Peru’s Youth Ministry is working to bring the good news of Jesus  Christ to  the many young  people who need  to  hear  it. Do join us  in supporting  the young people of Peru.
