Synod Youth Executive

The Wessex Synod Youth Executive (WSYE) is an elected group of up to ten young people aged between 14 and 25 from local churches in Wessex Synod. SYE meets three times a year, including ‘open days’ for youth to join the SYE. They have a passion to promote the voice of young people in the Synod, and they enjoy learning and journeying together.
