A church for young people aged 11-18+ in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria


Network Youth Church Barrow seeks to connect a new generation of young people with God.

Network Youth Church, Barrow is led by Andy Ward. It is held together by the many volunteers from the local churches in Barrow.

Andy was born in the UK, but has spent eleven years living in Colombia. There he worked with street children, reaching out to them and telling them about Jesus. He has been an Arsenal fan since the age of 8, and loves to try his hand at most sports. He is married to Sandy, and they have 4 young children, Joshua, Sam, Ben and Eleanor. He hopes to see young people in Barrow falling in love with Jesus and giving their lives to Him.
