I have found that having a seat at the table within the Church of England and the Diocese in London has been an extraordinary experience for me. I have been able to develop lifelong skills, challenge myself, get out of my comfort zone and in the process, become more of who I really am – a person of faith and influence”  – Charnelle

More information  

Young people are not the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders of today. Their insight, thinking and ideas make way for a better church, society and a better tomorrow.  

Paul says to you (young people) “Don’t be intimidated by those who are older than you; simply be the example they need to see by being faithful and true in all that you do. Speak truth and live a life of purity and authentic love as you remain strong in your faith.” 1 Timothy 4v12(TPT) 

The Bishop of London’s Youth council is an embodiment of this scripture. God has placed so much within you, that doesn’t have to wait until you have finished university or started work or start a family. What he has placed in you can be visible now, in school, in church, in society. Why not explore all God has called you to be now? Apply now.
