Welcome to the website of Brentwood Catholic Youth Service.

We facilitate Catholic Youth Ministry across the Diocese of Brentwood at our diocesan youth retreat centre at Walsingham House in Canvey Island,  at our youth events and in our parishes.

The aim of BCYS is ‘To make Disciples through the Holy Eucharist and Devotion to Our Lady’. (Ad Jesum Per Mariam)

This aim is achieved through:

1) The Development of Parish Based Youth Ministry
2) Supporting Schools in their Mission of Evangelisation
3) The Culture of Discipleship and Mission at our Youth Retreat Centre
4) Events for our Young People

The Youth Service is committed to the evangelisation of young people in the diocese. Please see the Brentwood Diocese: Vision for Youth Ministry 2014 document for further details on the youth service’s mission.
