Children and Young People at St John's are loved and welcomed members of the Church family and this starts at an early age. We have a detailed Child Protection Policy and a dedicated Child Protection Officer. Leaders of all of our Children and Young Peoples Groups attend update courses on a regular basis.
St John's has an active programme for teenagers under the Church Youth Fellowship Association banner (CYFA). Typically meeeting on a Sunday evening the varied programme includes Bible study, discussion of topical issues, occasional worship evenings and social times. The group gets involved in larger local events and often meets up with the youth groups at the other churches in the local area. There are a number of events planned in association with the Otley Deanery Youth and Children's network (of which St John's is a part) coming up. Please see the calendar for more details.
