Ministry to young people is a vital part of the work of our churches. In such an extensive Diocese, youth ministry can vary widely from place to place. Despite these distances and differences, youth ministry in the Armidale Diocese is all about introducing all young people to Jesus and helping them home to heaven.

The Diocese has a Youth Encourager, Elliot Chapman, a member of Guyra parish. Elliot heads up the Diocese’ Youth Committee which seeks to bring together youth (and their leaders) from all around the Diocese a few times per year for events and training. He is supported in this role by a team drawn from around the Diocese. The current members of the Youth Committee are Tim Stevens and Lucy Chapman from Guyra, Keely Murphy and Greg Stones from Gunnedah, Philip van’t Spyker from Moree, Michael Woodley from South Tamworth, and Georgia Burke from Armidale.
