Church of Ireland Youth Department acts as the Churches governing body for all matters relating to work with young people (aged 13 – 25 years) across the Church. As an all-Ireland youth organisation, CIYD relates not only to the Church of Ireland but Irish and Northern Irish government departments and agencies.
We work in close collaboration with a number of youth service providers and we support the work of the Church’s Diocesan youth scene. The Youth Department offers a range of services, programmes and resources. We equip, empower and engage the Church of Ireland, young people and adult youth leaders with the right skills, knowledge and understanding that allows progressive youth ministry to occur.
