ChurchesWorking for AYFC allows a highly privileged perspective on the unity of the body of Christ. There is one Church in Ashby. Denominations, affiliations and differences can easily be overlooked when working together towards the same goals. AYFC is one banner under which Christians from all of the different churches unite – for the purpose of serving local young people.
We are extremely grateful for and entirely dependent on the support of local churches. We hope that we reciprocate this support. By helping churches develop their work with young people we aim to help young people grow in faith through some of the most difficult years of their life. This takes the form of staffing, resourcing and technical support of Sunday schools, evening groups, mentoring relationships, holiday clubs and residential trips. AYFC also enjoys taking up invitations to lead Sunday worship services or speak at fellowship meetings.
‘AYFC has supported the life of our church in a number of ways. Not only have they led services as a team, introducing us to the work they do in schools, but members of their team support our regular groups for young people. The support of AYFC is hugely appreciated by our church.’ Rev. Tim Philips
