Archdiocese of Birmingham
The Archdiocese of Birmingham wishes to appoint a Director of its Catholic Youth Service.
The post of Director of Catholic Youth Services is a new one and a crucial development in the vision and mission of youth ministry in Birmingham in line with the national vision of CYMFed.
This exciting development in the work of diocesan youth services in Birmingham has come about after a 3 year review of all existing services in the Archdiocese.
The diocesan youth services have been integrated into one unified service comprising three strands:
• BCYS (Birmingham Catholic Youth Services): this is a parish outreach team of AYO’s (Area Youth Officers) who support parish youth ministers within their own setting as well as support them in developing youth peer ministry through its VITAL course
• Alton Castle: this is the youth retreat centre based in the village of Alton in Staffordshire for youth aged 9-13. The centre is used by Catholic schools as well as annually by BCYS for parish groups
• Soli House: this is the youth retreat centre based in Stratford upon Avon in Warwickshire for youth aged 14-18.
