Resized Making Space logoMaking Space: A URC conference for local church children’s, families and youth workers

We believe this to be the URC’s first ever day conference for those people appointed (employed or core volunteer leading this ministry) by local churches, working with children and young people within local churches, ecumenical projects, local charities or the wider community.

The aim is to gather together children’s and youth workers for networking, training, listening, inspiration and growing community.
