Leeds Faith in Schools exists to be good news to the high schools of Leeds
25 years ago the churches in Leeds came together in response to the Faith in Leeds report to establish Leeds Faith in Schools to share the Good News with teenagers across the city. From working with a handful of schools in the beginning we now have youth workers working across approximately 15 high schools and academies in Leeds. We hope to be good news to the high schools of Leeds whom we serve by delivering Assemblies, RE lessons, PSCHE lessons and mentoring groups as well as running lunchtime clubs, Christian Unions, after school activities and sports coaching. Our work is values-led and contributes to schools’ SMSC responsibilities.
We have an active involvement in city-wide church youth work across Leeds, partnering with other youth organisations to help shape the landscape of Christian youth work in the city and support the local church.
We believe that every teenager is brilliant, valuable and has a unique contribution to bring to society. We hope that through our work the teenagers we see grow in confidence, develop socially, emotionally and spiritually and get to live life in all its fullness.
