Welcome to the Diocesan Youth Service!


The East Anglia Diocesan Youth Service exists to help young people in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to connect with Jesus Christ and his Catholic Church. We carry out this mission through the running of various events across East Anglia, by providing support to schools and parishes and also through the Ignite Team, which visits schools and churches to run retreats, activities and workshops. Please select an option from the sidebar (see below on mobile devices) to find out more about what we do for young people in our Diocese and for information about upcoming events.


The Ignite Team continue to welcome new bookings

(17/07/2020) The ignite Team look forward to being able to visit schools and parishes once social distancing guidelines permit. We are accepting advance bookings for the coming months with the understanding that these may be cancelled or changed if restrictions tighten again.

We are also able to offer an online experience for groups of children or young people.

Please contact us using the details below to discuss what we can do for your school or parish.


NEW: Fireplace!
