Our mission:

Life to the Full

We believe in young people and share the hope-filled message of Jesus with them.


The Story So Far...

The story of how Young Life International began in Hoddesdon is a long and interesting one, but in the interested of time and space, here is the brief version.

Young Life International started in Hertford in October of 2000. In 2005, a group of parents approached the Area Director in Hertford about starting YLI in Hoddesdon. One of the volunteer leaders from Hertford was then hired as the first staff in Hoddesdon.

In 2007, Young Life International was given a building, the Mannamead Centre, which we have operated out of ever since. We run a weekly club for our 14-18 year olds along with Young Life International Hertford. We do regular schools work as well as run weekly Bible studies.

Join the Adventure

Young Life International Hoddesdon is made up of people like you - who know that life was meant to be fully lived.

If you're a young person or student, you’re invited.

And if you're an adult who cares about young people, there are a number of ways to get involved.

We promise three things: you'll have outrageous fun, you’re welcome here and we'll talk about what really matters in life - including God's extravagant love for you.

Contact us to find out more.

All of us here at Young Life International take safeguarding seriously – we’d love to tell you more about our approach.
