What is the mission of BCY?
to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the young people of Bury St Edmunds and district
This is summarised in the tagline on our new logo -
connecting young people to Jesus
We aim to do this by:
· Building relationships with young people to provide role models in Christian lifestyle and to nurture young Christians in their walk with God.
· Developing positive relationships with schools and supporting them in the provision of collective worship and with a clear Christian input into RE and other areas of the school curriculum.
· Initiating and encouraging the development of extra-curriculum activities to provide opportunities for interested young people to learn more about Jesus Christ in an informal setting.
· Encouraging and training and supporting churches in their work with young people.
· Encouraging prayer by individuals and churches for all work with young people in Bury St Edmunds and District.
· Acting as a stepping-stone between churches and young people.
· Looking for new opportunities to take the Gospel to young people in Bury St Edmunds and District and to enable them to respond to its challenges.
