Where are all the young people?
Across the country, the average C of E church has just three children attending, and the smallest 25 per cent have none at all.
At the Christian Resources Exhibition last month, the Church Times Live event brought together a panel of youth workers to talk about this: Ali Campbell, who runs the Resource youthwork consultancy; Savannah John-Leighton, Youth Leader at St John’s, Hoxton in London; and Polly Baker, who works as a youthworker on an estate. The session was chaired by Madeleine Davies.
