The Pulse

The Pulse is a termly youth gathering for young people (school years 7-13) organised by Durham Diocese. Each event is different; it is usually based in Durham Cathedral but not always. The purpose is for youth groups to come together in larger numbers than their weekly meetings, to have fun, to explore faith in a variety of different ways and to worship God together. Events and activities have included a pilgrimage across the sands to Holy Island, magician and comedian John Archer, the world’s largest escape room, a gospel choir, big games, prayer spaces, testimony, Archdeaconry Youth Games at Brancepeth Castle, a juggler, youth worship groups from around the diocese, a Taize service, Gladiator challenges with ‘Ace’ (Warren Furman) and a party with DJ Sean Pickering in the Monk’s Garden at the cathedral.

Next Events

At the moment The Pulse is on pause due to Covid restrictions, but we are hoping to be back up and running in 2021. One of the events we had to cancel was the Youth Pilgrimage in June to Holy Island.So I just went by myself …
