Anglican Youth Association

Background

It was discovered that most of our churches in the diocese were full of young people who were just left out in all church activities and no leadership was there to coordinate them and hence this led to the formation of AYA in 1989.  The idea was to see the voice of young people being heard and recognised since they are the leaders of today and tomorrow.  

With the formation of AYA, we now have organised Youth Associations at local, district, and diocesan levels.  The youth are now involved in many of the church activities such as being part of the decision making body as they are represented in the church council and at Diocesan Synod.

Aims and Objectives

  • To lead young people into a personal experience of the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
  • To deepen their faith in Christ through bible study, prayer, and worship.
  • To train youths in Christian witness and community service.
  • To foster interest in the establishment of income generating projects.
  • To encourage the development of the mature Christian character through suitable culture, educational and recreational activities.

Membership and Organization

The youth membership is open to all young people within the diocese of the ages between thirteen and thirty, provided they are not yet married.  The youth membership stands at 2,510, as of December 2001.  Three-quarters of the members are in the rural areas and a quarter of the members are in urban areas.  Since most of the youth are in the rural areas, it shows that most of them are not employed and others are still going to school.

Currently, we don't have a youth worker and hence most of the youth activities are carried out by a team of volunteers comprising of the youth chaplain and youth executive.

This team moves around the whole diocese in various parishes and districts so as to meet young people and see their activities and attend to their needs.
