Church of England Youth Council (CEYC)

CEYC is a part of the Church of England run for 16-25 year olds by 16-25 year olds.

CEYC was created in 2004 as a forum in which those aged between 16 and 25 could share views on matters affecting the Church of England as a whole, and their churches locally. Through a network of Diocesan Representatives, the Council seeks to represent the views of young people and young adults in the Church of England, contributing to diocesan and national conversations and ensuring that the views of young people and young adults are taken into consideration. It seeks to empower its members to have a voice in their local church, and through an annual residential and one-day conference, engage them in discussing important issues.
