Church Work

Church Work

At Wycombe YFC we believe the local church is integral to the outreach and discipleship of children and young people. With this in mind we seek to serve, support and work with churches in their ministry and discipleship of children and young people.

Wycombe YFC is able to offer a range of support in helping your church engage with children and young people. This could range from us running a service or event with you, to a working with you at a school or partnering with the WYFC Training Scheme.

The team has over 20 years experience in Children’s & Youth Ministry and we seek to serve and support the Churches in their ministry and discipleship of children and young people.

Training:

We offer training sessions across a broad range of topics that seek to equip and develop Leadership Teams and young people. Examples of training include Inclusive Prayer, Engaging Story-Telling, Children’s Ministry and Christianity & New Atheism.

This is not an exhaustive list and we would be happy to discuss with you and the church about the your training needs and how we can best support you.

Resources:

We have hundreds of lessons, assemblies, club sessions and holiday week material that can be used and adapted for the church setting. If you are interested in knowing more about the resources we have, please let us know.

WYFC Training Scheme:

In 2012 we initiated the WYFC Training, which is in partnership with the Institute for Children, Youth & Mission (CYM).

Each year, we aim to have a student on placement with us for 3 years, during their degree studies in Children’s and/or Youth Ministry and Theology at CYM. We are able to offer the student a wide range of experience in Schools, Children’s and Youth Work in a variety of settings, which will enable them to develop their skills and ministry.

As our vision is to serve, support and work with churches in their ministry and discipleship of children and young people, we shall be seeking to partner with a church for each student, and half of their hours each week will be dedicated to supporting the church’s Children’s and/or Youth Ministry.

If you or your church is interested in the Training Scheme, please contact Erica Holt on tel.: 01494 522777 or email: erica@wycombeyfc.org.uk.

Alternatively, if you are aged 18 or over and would like to know more about studying for a degree on placement with Wycombe YFC, please also contact Erica on the details above.
