The Christian Youth Work Consortium brings together denominations, Christian youth agencies and training providers. It gives a voice to Christian youth work on regional and national bodies and provides information about youth work training in the UK.

Its aims are to:

  • affirm, encourage and equip the Christian sector in its work with young people
  • provide an opportunity to debate and discuss key issues in youth work, youth policy and youth ministry
  • be an inclusive network for leaders in Christian youth work/youth ministry agencies, training providers and denominational youth departments
  • represent the Christian youth work constituency on various national and UK bodies and at key events, disseminate information, consult widely to agree common ground, and advocate on behalf of the sector.

Join the Birmingham Conversation - November 2019

Those involved in Christian youth ministry and training are invited to join the Birmingham Conversation on 15th November 2019 - find out more on our news page.

  • Following a meeting of the CYWC in spring 2019, read David Howell's update on their plans to respond to the challenges facing Christian youth work/ministry and theological education/training.
  • CYWC produce an annual report into the numbers of students on Christian youth and/or children’s work higher education programmes. The findings reveal a continuing and concerning decline in numbers, which the Consortium is seeking to address. Read the 2019 research report, and the accompanying appendix which lists the providers and programmes available.
