Ivybridge Youth for Christ is one of 70 local centres which operate as a chartered ministry of British Youth For Christ. It was started in September 2006 by Elis Norton who is still the Director. Ivybridge YFC shares the same values as British Youth For Christ.
What do we do?: Our objective is to take the good news of the gospel to every young person in the Ivybridge area. This means meeting young people in schools, youth centres, churches and parks, and on streets and South Hams beautiful beaches! In fact, anywhere where there are young people. This is being done through supporters in Ivybridge and the surrounding areas including a group of churches in the villages of Holbeton, Brixton, Wembury, Noss Mayo, Newton Ferrers and Yealmpton. Key areas of our work are:
Primary Schools: Here we support schools via assemblies, lessons and Christian clubs such as SHINE in Newton Ferrers & Holbeton.
Secondary Schools: Currently our major work here is at Ivybridge Community College. This involves two lunchtime groups [Rock Solid (Yrs 7-9) and Mettle (Yrs 10-13)].
Youth Alpha: We have run a number of Youth Alpha sessions for young people. Check out our 'What's On' page for details of the next course.
