“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

Benefits To Your Church

 Help bring young families into your Church with CLCGB

“The tremendous thing is that all our leaders, without exception, come to Church. That means that there is a first-hand example to the children: it’s not “come because I say” it’s “come because I come.” The whole CLCGB is entwined with the Church life, if we didn’t have it we would have to invent it.”

Rev’d. Ian Butterworth

(St Martin’s Castleton)

“We want to introduce CLCGB to Parishes to aid you in your ‘Going for Growth’ youth work strategy and as part of your outreach policy. We have found that Parishes that have a CLCGB group provide their children and young people with a spiritual content to their lives and attract more young families to their Church.”

Audrey Simm (Former Chief Executive Officer)

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun, but it also gives them a discipline...

I am proud of a lot of people CLCGB has produced during my time and if any Priest in any Parish anywhere wants an organisation which is really going to be loyal and faithful to the Church, and is the only Church uniformed youth organisation you can do no better then CLCGB, so I do commend it to you with every Blessing.”
