AdminHistoryOriginally the BCC had a Youth Department; but in 1974 this became a Unit within the Division of Ecumenical Affairs (DEA) although it still served the whole Council. It was tasked with bringing together various youth agencies in the Churches for joint exchanges and planning; discussion of issues which are of particular concern to young people; ensuring that young people play an appropriate part in the life of their churches and the BCC; promoting participation of young people and church youth agencies in international events and organisations. These aims have been carried out partly by the Youth Unit Reference Group and partly by events such as Dayspring, Mannafest, and Kaleidoscope.
