Sara McGucken & Katie Williamson from Lisburn Cathedral
Adam Steen & Ava Martin from St Patrick’s, Coleraine
Ciaran Hampton & Catherine Forde from the Church of the Resurrection
Diocesan Youth Officer Christina Baillie said: “We would love to see more young people from across the diocese engaged with this exciting project! We believe that it will be a great opportunity to connect young people to the local church and help them understand the Church of Ireland at a deeper level.”
Christina said there would be a number of gatherings of the young people involved throughout the year discussing youth ministry in Connor parishes.
She asked: “Are you a youth leader or know any young people in your parish who may be interested in this opportunity?
“Are you a young person who would be interested in signing up?
“Are you a member of clergy who is interested in finding out more?”
