YCF as it is affectionately known, started as a church in Tooting, south west London on January 1997 with a handful of young people who had a passion to build a ministry that would be a “sanctuary” for all different types of people regardless of their personal problems or ethnic background.
The zeal and passion generated by these few young people became infectious and others started to come to the church from the north, south, east and west of London and beyond.
YCF has now become an international ministry where people can find their uniqueness and fulfill their calling,with representation in India, Kenya, Pakistan and the U.K. With a team of faithful and committed leaders, we encourage various expressions of worship and ministry that bring transformation to the hearts of men. We also willingly commit ourselves to partnering with other churches and civil organisations, who are committed to the welfare of individuals, social justice and transformation of communities.
With the mandate to be relevant to our community and the nations of the world, God has given us an overall emphasis, which is to “Build Families and Raise Leaders” with a strong emphasis on worship and God’s Word. Through a diversity of activities and projects, we have been able to achieve this on a local and international level. We believe that you cannot raise effective people without first investing in them, therefore, we are confident that you will find something here to aid your personal development. We are committed to being a sanctuary to those that God would bring to us and if we can positively impact your life through the love of God, we are confident that we would have served our purpose and prepared you, to serve yours!
