Taizé Trip

Bishop Anne is leading a Youth Pilgrimage to Taize in France and is inviting you to join her.

If you are looking to explore your faith or refresh your journey with God, and want to meet new friends from all over the world and spend some time in a beautiful area of France, then join us.

We will be travelling by coach overnight on the 20th arriving on the 21st, and the return journey will begin on the 28th, arriving back on the 29th.

The cost for the coach is £140 for over 25, £125 for under 25's and the Taize contribution is £70 for under 30's and £140 for over 30's per person (based on £20 a day)

We have an information pack we can send you with all the information you will need. Please note that you will be responsible for your own passport, health card and visas. If you do need a Visa please contact us as Taize can help with that procedure.

If you are over 18 please fill in the form  here; if you are under 18 please contact Emma to discuss the booking procedure.

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.

If you need more ideas or information contact Emma or click  here to go to Youthscape's website - the creators of Youth Work Sunday, where there are videos and ideas waiting for you.  

Bishop's Youth Synod

Do you support Christian young people aged 16-20 in your youth work? Are you someone who cheers and supports that young person on?

Would you both like to be part of the Bishops' Youth Synod?
This is a group to increase the youth flavoured voice across CofE Birmingham whilst growing and encouraging young leaders across
our parishes.

You could both join us to explore being part of the Bishop's Youth Synod and be part of a voice for young people across CofE Birmingham, whilst also getting involved in events and activities that speak into the lives of other young people in all the corners of our Diocese.
