About us!
Believe it or not, AVYFC has been around for years! We do loads of stuff in the community for young people, mostly for those aged between 9 and 25. We aim to bring a glimpse of God’s love into the community, so we look at the current needs and respond to them in a way that is meaningful and relevant to young people.

What we actually do
We run a lot of youth cafes! If you don’t believe us, check out www.youthcafe.info. We see hundreds of young people every week at the cafes. There’s loads of things to do at the cafes including games, workshops, homework help! (if you’re keen), but mostly there are a place to make new friends and have fun!

We do a load of stuff with the local churches too to build community and share God’s love. We run a youth worship event called Impact and theres a live band, cafe and space to reflect about life and God and stuff like that! We are going to run this 3 or 4 times a year.

If you’re in to music, media and photography, we have our very own recording studio! It’s called Southcourt Studios and (as you guessed) it’s located in Southcourt, Aylesbury. You can book a rehearsal for you band, record your own music, create music videos, come along to our live gigs, learn some photography and video skills and more. If this sounds good, check out the website and get in touch. www.southcourtstudios.com

After three years working for his local church in Northwood Hills he is excited to take up the post at AVYFC. He loves beef jerky, really hard questions and Jesus. Not in that order.

As well as managing youth projects, she also mentors members of the team and acts as Secretary for the trustees for our leadership team meetings.
