About Us

God is revealing Himself to a generation of young people, who know Him deeply, and are set ablaze with His love for those around them. This is what we live for: young people meeting Jesus for themselves, and flourishing in all their God-given brilliance.

We are committed to provide ‘greenhouse’ environments where the youth can build meaningful relationships with one-another, step out in faith, and encounter God. Ultimately, we want all of the young people in our parish and local community to know how loved they are by the Father, and be equipped to enjoy a rich and satisfying friendship with Jesus through the Holy Spirit, for the rest of their lives.

The Chanctonbury Youth Team is made up of various members of staff, volunteers and interns. Prior to lockdown, we have been privileged to be involved with a handful of the schools in the area. During the various stages of COVID, our activities have varied, and during the lockdown phase, all of our youth group activities are hosted online.

Do get in touch if you need further information.
