Welcome to the website of North East Scotland Youth for Christ! We are a chartered local centre of British YFC, one of Britain's most dynamic Christian organisations dedicated to tackling the big issues facing young people in our society today.
Our mission is to take the Good News relevantly to every young person in North East Scotland. From Elgin to Montrose we work directly with young people through events like Breathe and in partnership with local churches by supplying resources and training.
Please take a look around our site to find out more about us, how you can contribute to our ministry and how we can help you; if you'd like regular updates on our ministry just contact us. If you've come here looking for YFC:NE in England they can be found at www.yfcnortheast.org.uk.

Help with Cage Towing
Wednesday, 28 March 2012 12:59
Our cage football project launches this June; an exciting way of taking sports mission to young people across the North East. We need drivers with towbars on their cars to assist our team by towing the cage to different locations from the base in Aberdeen. Your expenses will be covered, and this is a simple way to support our vital work, particularly if you're not in a position to help with the direct work with young people.
Can you help, either as a one-off or regularly? Contact us now:
or call 01224 213495

British YFC has recently launched Ethos - a series of short films developed over the past couple of years. Ethos is a response to the challenge we have of connecting with and maintaining our discipleship of young adults.
The plan is to release 18 films gradually over a period of 5 weeks via @ethosuk on Twitter, www.yfc.co.uk/ethos and a designated Youtube channel.
