Children and young people


The Papworth Team takes child protection very seriously and everyone working in an official capacity in the Team or involved with working with children or young people is DBS-checked. 

There is a range of activities for young people across the team. For more information about youth activities please  see the WCCYM (West Cambridge Christian Youth Ministries) website.

We have links with primary schools in BournEltisleyElsworth and Papworth Everard (links will open in new windows). We regularly go into schools to take assemblies and teach local children about the Christian faith, as well as serving on governing bodies.
