Message from Bishop Christopher

“In Southwark Diocese we long to see children and young people with Hearts on Fire for Jesus. I am very pleased to commend this publication, which outlines the support available from the Diocese of Southwark in this vital area of ministry.”

Our Vision

Our vision is of a hospitable church, in which children and young people are welcomed and invited to shape, and be shaped by the life of the church and its mission; bringing their energy, inspiration & challenge.
