The Archbishop of Canterbury, Bishop Rachel and Bishop Robert met for a quiet and reflective evening service with young people from The Rock and Fabric, two youth mission networks in West Cheltenham.

Fabric is a youth minister project, coordinated by Trinity Cheltenham, to plant and support youth work in churches without any provision and encourage others through worship gatherings and training.

The Rock works to bring God’s hope, purpose and connection to young people, especially those impacted by exclusion, disadvantage or vulnerability.

The prayer spaces used for worship are regular features of the local ministry to local schools and to the young people who attend The Rock.
