Growing Young Disciples – GYD

GYD is a fun and interactive day – an opportunity for young people to grow as followers of Jesus.

GYD is an event for young people in school Years 6-8 and aims to help them:

  • explore Godly character and fruitfulness
  • understand how God can work through us
  • recognise what more God might want to do
  • reflect on truth and justice
  • grow closer to Jesus

GYD aims to support what local churches are already doing and encourage young people as they follow Jesus.

The most recent GYD event was held on Saturday 11 November 2023 at Histon Baptist Church. The next one will be announced in due course.
