“God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have MY MISSION.”

 – Saint John Henry Newman

MYMission, the Diocese of Middlesbrough Youth Mission was launched in 2010 by Bishop Terry Drainey as a dynamic and radical youth ministry initiative serving the Diocese of Middlesbrough. 

We believe that:

  • all young people are called by God. We want them to hear that call, to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and to know the deep joy that faith in Him as the Son of God can bring
  • we are all called to live our faith in Jesus Christ in relationship with each other. Living this relationship in the world should make a huge difference to us all.
  • the Church and the Eucharist – celebrating Mass together – are at the very centre of living our faith.

‘We need a church capable of walking at people’s side, of doing more than simply listening to them (young people); a church that accompanies them on their journey.’

 – Pope Francis
