Presbytery Youth Work Facilitator

There’s lots going on around the Presbytery for children and young people. Many churches have Sunday School or Junior Church groups that meet on Sunday mornings during term time. Some churches have All-Age services at different times of the month. Most churches have groups for children and young people that run through the week as well. Contact your local church to find out what’s going on near you. If you’re interested in Messy Church, Boys Brigade, Girls Brigade or Mainly Music follow the links below to find local groups directly.

Vicky Stigant is our Presbytery Youth Work Facilitator. She helps the churches in Presbytery to develop and sustain work with children and young people, including supporting volunteers, running training events and working with congregations to develop new ways of working with children and young people. Vicky can be contacted by email or phone on 07562 308704.

Vicky also runs a Facebook page for youth and children’s leaders where information about upcoming events, training and other news is posted. Please contact Vicky if you would like to know more about youth and children’s work in Presbytery.

In addition to Vicky's role, Church of Scotland ministers and volunteers from churches are also involved in work in their local primary and secondary schools. This can range from taking assemblies and lessons and running lunch clubs, to organising events like Prayer Spaces. 


The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and wellbeing of each individual.

It seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people, regardless of age, who come into contact with the Church and its organisations.

It is the responsibility of each individual within the fellowship of the Church to prevent the physical, sexual or emotional abuse of children and young people.
