About Us

What is Cambridge Youthwork Collective?

Cambridge Youthwork Collective is a network of Christians working with young people in Cambridge and District.

Why is Cambridge Youthwork Collective so vital?

Cambridge Youthwork Collective offers those engaged in Christian youth ministry the chance to be:

  • Connected: Sometimes you feel like you’re the only one doing what you do. We’ll help you meet some like minded people.
  • Encouraged: Working with young people can be tiring, frustrating and confusing. We’re here to remind you that it really is worth all the heartache.
  • Resourced: There are books, websites, courses and more, designed to make your life easier as a youth leader. We aim to put the best tools into your hands.
  • Developed: Youth ministry is perhaps the most important challenge facing the 21st century church. Together, we’re committed to getting better at what we do.
