Pilots and FOFA

THE programmes for children and young people in the URC

Welcome to the home page for Yorkshire Pilots and FOFA companies. We have a growing number of companies across the synod and our SPOs (Synod Pilots Officers) are always happy to talk to you about what is going on.

If you run a company, let us know what you are up to. Better still, send us a photo and we’ll feature you on this page 🙂

We look forward to hearing from you.
