Celebrating our 140th Anniversary

We are one of the biggest Christian youth organisations in the United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland.

We have faith in young people and provide opportunities for children and young people to learn, grow and discover in a safe, fun and caring environment which is rooted in the Christian faith.

There’s something for every young person whether it’s camping or kayaking, first aid or five a side, music or crafts. Members develop skills, build confidence, make friends, take responsibility and are encouraged to make a real difference in their communities – sharing the values that make us who we are.

Our work with children and young people is made possible thanks to our volunteer leaders who give of their time so generously.
