The Church of Ceylon Youth Movement celebrated its 75th Anniversary with a series of events in September this year. The CCYM was formed in 1941 due the pioneering vision and work of Bishop Cecil Horsely, and Rev. later Bishop Harold de Zoysa assisted by Rev. A.J. Forster and Rev. C.W. Mutukishna. The CCYM has come a long way since then in identifying and nurturing young lives and also in channeling new leadership to the church.
