What is PYP?

Preparing Youth to be Peacemakers (PYP) is a discipleship programme which aims to inform, equip and challenge young people to think about our biblical vocation to be peacemakers in a divided and diverse society.  The course began in 2001 and was revised and updated in 2006.

Information on how to register for the course and a registration form download can be found at the bottom of this page under the section: 'I want to be a facilitator'.

As part of our ongoing belief in the need to challenge our young people to live as peacemakers as the Bible commands in a land divided along sectarian and racial lines, we are holding a two night PYP facilitator training and information nights.
