What we do

The children’s and youth work office works with the children’s and youth work committee to equip and develop the United Reformed Church’s ministry amongst children and young people throughout the denomination. This work includes:

  • providing resources, events, guidance and advice as needed by children’s and youth work committee, synods, Mission Council and General Assembly
  • supporting the work of URC Youth (, the URC’s organisation for all young people involved or associated in any way with the United Reformed Church
  • supporting the work of Pilots (, an organisation for children and young people with local companies run by churches around the country
  • supporting the work of synod children’s and youth development officers (CYDOs) and their equivalents
