Entering its fifteenth year, our community regularly meets (every six weeks) at St Mary Moorfields Church, situated in the heart of the city between Moorgate and Liverpool Street.

We are a group of Young Professional working in the City or Canary Wharf across different industries.

Our Vision is to foster professional and personal development on the back of Christian values, in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Events include:

  • Mass & Dinner
  • Talks
  • Quiz nights
  • Wine Tasting
  • Pilgrimages
  • Cultural Excursions


A team of Young Professionals runs the organization of the Group and we can count on a spiritual advisor.

YCC is led by Father Chris Vipers, who was appointed Parish Priest at St Mary Moorfields in September 2016. Father Chris joins us from St Lawrence’s, Feltham and was previously of Corpus Christi, Covent Garden. He succeeds Father Peter Newby, who launched YCC in September 2004.
