Opportunities for Youth in our Parish and in the Diocese

Young people in the parish are welcome to join the serving teams at any of the three mass centres, to join prayer and bible study groups, to give ideas on what they would like as parish youth activities (ideas to Jo Crane) and are welcome to attend MAD – a group linked with the parish. MAD is co-run by Jo Crane email jocrane@sky.com. We aim to: Make a Difference (MAD).


We meet weekly during term time and discuss current and sometimes controversial topics and aim to provide a comfortable environment for young people to discuss these. We are non-judgemental and encourage young people to explore their faith. We study the bible, pray, play games, collect money for good causes, celebrate birthdays and enjoy barbeques, hot chocolate and French cricket! We meet in Ardleigh and transport can be arranged.

Our Diocese of Brentwood has a wide range of activities. Look up BCYS as the Brentwood Catholic Youth Service. BCYS | Brentwood Catholic Youth Service to see what is going on.
