Ampleforth Youth Church was started in January 2019. There is a youth church team of 5, with the Vicar and Hilary Straszewski as the main leaders. Around 12-15 young people attend weekly and sessions take place in Ampleforth village hall.
During Covid-19, Revd Catherine and Hilary have organised sessions on Zoom for youth church.
Youth Church has now stopped for the summer. However, weekly prayers and any other information is shared on our Ampleforth Youth Church Facebook page.
Our Benefice is currently part of recruiting a new Youth and Children’s post to build on our work in sharing the Gospel with young people in our Benefice, Helmsley, Kirkdale, and the Byland Group.
