“The X Factor was a great opportunity to learn skills from someone who’d had years of experience in Youth Work. It was really helpful to bounce ideas around and get a realistic idea as to what would/wouldn’t work. It was also a time of blessing and encouragement, knowing we had the backup of someone so knowledgeable in that particular field of work.” Mrs Ann Lett, Lincoln South Circuit, the Methodist Church

“LYM’s combination of faith, talent, teamwork, experience and local knowledge means that it has something really special to offer to young people in our area’.” Canon Ian Silk, Lincoln
