CYM School Chaplaincy

The next big step for Christian youth work in Ipswich

Chaplaincy is the new model for our Youth Work. We have talked a lot over the years about finding more space and time to be with young people, and in particular building relationships.

As of September 2016, we placed paid staff in a number of schools in Ipswich, providing a dedicated presence in the environment in which the young people spend most of their time. Our Chaplains work in the schools and their surrounding communities to provide pastoral and spiritual support to the young people and members of staff that they meet. They also look to link in the wider community with local churches. We passionately believe that God's vision is to see this sort of work in Ipswich.
