Youth Committee

The Provincial Youth Committee is a collection of youth representatives and youth officers with representatives from all seven dioceses. The committee come together to discuss the status of the youth within their diocese, plan provincial youth events and to ensure the voice of the young people is heard.

To ensure our young people are heard meetings are held by two youth representatives that hold the position of chair and secretary of the PYC. All youth representatives hold a voting position to ensure that it is the young people that make decisions about what happens within the province.

The Provincial Youth Committee provides a safe space for young people to voice their opinions, be heard and have a role within the church.


Whether you have one teenager in your church or a team of young people, they all need to know about provincial youth events. Keep an eye on the website for event forms, if you have any queries about any of our events do not hesitate to contact the connected youth officer.

Glen 2020 – Provincial Youth Week

Information is provided below in relation to Glen 2020. However, in the light of the current Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, there is inevitably uncertainty at present as to whether it will in fact be possible for Glen 2020 to proceed. The matter is being kept under regular review and, if it becomes necessary to cancel, that information will be communicated widely within the Church, those who have made bookings will be informed, and any fees paid will be refunded.

While the situation is under review, please do not send in any applications until further notice.
