Youth Work Sunday
This is happening on 22 September 2019 and is an opportunity to celebrate the young people of you parish and community, whether they are part of your Sunday worship or not.
Each parish will receive a 'Youth Work Sunday' booklet, with your 'Praying Together booklet', to help you plan an act of worship on 22 September. It includes ideas for liturgy, sermon ideas for the lectionary reading as well as how to engage young people with planning and running parts or all of the service.
How ever you chose to celebrate the young people of your community, please tell us about it by emailing Emma Sargeant the Growing Younger Advisor. firstname.lastname@example.org
