About Us

We’re about seeing young people’s lives changed by jesus.

Shrewsbury Youth for Christ are a Christian charity seeking to see positive change in the lives of young people in our town. We do this by showing Jesus in a way which is relevant to every young person in Shrewsbury. In places like schools, churches and local communities, using sport, the arts, the outdoors and so much more!

We have been running in Shrewsbury since 2004  and have enjoyed the privilege of working closely with local schools, colleges and churches to see young people impacted by the positive messages that we bring.

Every week we run a variety of different activities both inside and outside of school. This can range from assemblies and lessons, to mentoring and outdoors activities. We love working with young people and we love representing God’s heart to young people.

We actively seek to support local schools by offering a wide range of programmes which will help and encourage young people both in informal and more formal settings.

We are also passionate about linking local schools with local churches and enabling both of these  communities to work together. Wherever possible, we will carry out our work in school with the support of the local church.

We are governed locally by a board of trustees and a council of reference.
