This interest group brings together people from agencies and churches passionate about young people and developing initiatives to work together in creative ways. The Forum has grown from what used to be the Youth and Children’s Forum.
The Forum is linked to a European-wide initiative called Mission-Net. Mission-Net exists to bring young Christians together for mutual encouragement, teaching, training and mobilisation. It is primarily aimed at 16 - 30 year-old Europeans who are willing to consider living a Christian missional lifestyle which allies spiritual expressions of faith with practical contributions to the common good of society.
In the UK, the main focus is finding ways to mobilise the under 30’s into mission by promoting and creating the ‘movement’ aspect of the European Mission-Net. The Forum aims to mobilise young adults into mission involvement giving a particular emphasis on engagement with GOfest events. It is also linked to the various Regional Partnerships.
