Children & Youth Ministries

There are a number of different ministries operating for youth and children in the Diocese of New Westminster; and you can find information about all of them in these pages.

Many individual parishes operate ministries among young people. There are also groups operating ministries which are open to all youth in the diocese, such as Camp Artaban, Sorrento Centre and the British Columbia and Yukon Anglican Youth Movement.

Diocesan wide initiatives and events are coordinated by the Diocesan Youth Movement, a unit formed by youth and youth leaders from around the Lower Mainland. The DYM organize diocesan wide youth initiatives and opportunities for training and equipping youth leaders.

Caitlin Reilley Beck, Diocesan Children and Youth Ministries Coordinator, supports and extends youth ministry throughout the diocese. As well as telling you more about any of the ministries and resources on this site, she can help to assist you with ministering among young people in whichever context you’re involved in.
