The Christian Youth Work Consortium brings together denominations, Christian youth agencies and training providers. It gives a voice to Christian youth work on regional and national bodies and provides information about youth work training in the UK.
Its aims are to:
affirm, encourage and equip the Christian sector in its work with young people
provide an opportunity to debate and discuss key issues in youth work, youth policy and youth ministry
be an inclusive network for leaders in Christian youth work/youth ministry agencies, training providers and denominational youth departments
represent the Christian youth work constituency on various national and UK bodies and at key events, disseminate information, consult widely to agree common ground, and advocate on behalf of the sector.
In September 2013, David Howell, the contact person for CTWC, spoke to the CYWC purpose document and made a presentation to CTE's Enabling Group.
In May 2016 CYWC organised a one-day consultation.
