What is the NYMW?

The National Youth Ministry Weekend is the gathering point for Christians who work with young people. Held over three days in November, it’s a chance for youth leaders, youth workers, church leaders and other practitioners to hear new ideas, receive inspiration, worship, pray, network and get creative. It’s completely different to any event that’s gone before, and it’s jam-packed with content that will be relevant for anyone who loves God and cares about teenagers.

With content tailored to suit both experienced full-timers and brand-new volunteers, the NYMW includes worship and Bible teaching from gifted leaders, workshops and seminars to help develop practical skills, and plenty of opportunities to have fun and meet other people who share your passion and calling. Our speakers are drawn from across the church – and the world – and whether they’re household names or speaking to a crowd for the first time, we’re certain they’ve got something vital and compelling to share with you. Alongside our main programme there’s a range of streams and extras, from a special academic theology track to dedicated spaces to discern calling and troubleshoot your youth work issues.

At the very heart of the NYMW is a commitment to developing and showcasing youth ministry innovation. You’ll learn processes to help you grow new programmes or build great creative approaches to local youth work, and you’ll also receive a series of free, brand new resources, developed specially for the event, and piloted in the preceding months to ensure they'll really work with your young people.

We’re committed to exploring and discovering the future of Christian youth work together. Come, bring your team, and be a part of the NYMW – a ground-breaking new event, bringing fresh vision for a time of fresh challenges.

Who are Youthscape?

We’re a national youth work organisation determined to see transformation in the lives of all young people, and in the church’s approach to working with them. Based in Luton, Bedfordshire, our team of youth and schools specialists work in a range of formal and informal settings, focusing on young people’s social, emotional and spiritual development, while our national-facing projects help the whole church to grapple with the same areas. We’re totally committed to a robust innovation process which means we test new ideas in our local context and then share what works nationally.
