About Us

We’re not part of the synod secretariat, a local Bishops conference, order or diocese, but rather a group of young people excited about what the final document and subsequent apostolic exhortation from the Pope had to say, as well as inspired by the role young people had in the whole process.

So much is said about listening to and empowering young people in the Church. Taking that as our starting point we thought we would start this project to help share the fruits of the 2018 Synod and help support its implementation in the Church in England and Wales.

This is one project amongst others developed by a group of young adults working under the banner ‘Forming Missionary Disciples’, you can find more about us on our site here. While working with the rest of the group, Chris Knowles is spearheading this project for the coming months, hoping to secure some further funding as things develop.

Support us

As a group of young adults and not a bigger organisation we’ve put our own resources and money in to get this project off the ground, but there’s a lot more we’d like to do.

We’d like to make some interactive videos and animations focusing on themes from the synod and exhortation, put together reflections from those involved, keep a blog looking at how the synod is being implemented here and elsewhere in the world.

At the moment we’re also having to charge for workshops, but we’d like to be able to offer these for free if groups are unable to pay. All of this, too, takes time to promote and coordinate.

If you’re able to help in any way, either as an individual or organisations, or if you know who else may be able to help us, please do get in touch!

This might be financially, or help with printing, use of venues for training or advice and support for our coordinator/team.

We’re not a registered charity as the administrative burden would overwhelm us at the moment, but if this would be a barrier - please get in touch anyway.

Whether you’re able to help with any of the above or not, please do keep us all in your prayers!

Work With Us

Interested in promoting the synod, the Pope’s exhortation and empowering young people to be leaders in the constant renew the Church? If so, please do get in touch!

We’re really keen to work with others because the more of us there are, the more we can do.

Working intergeneration-ally is something that’s been really important to the synod process, so this is something we’d be interested in exploring with you.

The nature of the Church as a 2000 year old organisations means it can be a challenge to start to look at things in new ways, but by working together we can support the young highlight the newness of the Gospel and what it means to live it out authentically in todays modern world.
