Welcome To Christian Endeavour, Ireland

Irish Christian Endeavour Union - an organisation which trains and equips today's young people to be tomorrow's church leaders. This site will tell you all about our organisation: our ethos, who we are, what we do and tell you all about what's going on at the moment throughout the country with our affiliated societies.

Our Facebook page is also a great way to see what C.E. Ireland has been getting up to!

About C.E.

Christian Endeavour (C.E.) is a non-denominational movement which seeks to teach and train its members for service in their local church through participation in regular meetings and by taking an active role in group work. Members are encouraged to take the C.E. promise, which promotes commitment to Christ, the local Church and fellow believers.

How Can C.E. Help My Church?

Getting new leaders in churches is difficult, but C.E. believe that the best way to build up the numbers and the ability of the leaders within your own church family, is to train your own.

C.E. is run under the Motto of 'For Christ and the Church' and on four Main Standards;
Confession of Christ | Service for Christ | Fellowship of Christ's people | Loyalty to Christ's Church

We here at C.E. Ireland are convinced that training our young people to serve the church, is the most effective way of sustaining the leadership within the Church, which is such an integral part of Church family life.

At Irish C.E. we have our own Training Convenor, who would be glad to speak with you, advise you on how to start up as C.E. Society and could also come to you and provide training and perhaps even help you run your first meeting. Please contact your local society or use the contact section at the bottom of this page.

Getting Involved

Irish Christian Endeavour (C.E.) is run locally throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. C.E. is broken down into different age brackets to help accommodate for everyone, depending on your local C.E. To find your local C.E. and the group that would most suit you (or someone you know), please contact us.


Children in Junior CE are trained to take part in and be responsible for their own weekly meeting. This meeting offers an action packed programme in which they “learn by doing”. By this the children are fully involved in the planning, preparing for and the actual participation of the meeting.

Young Peoples

Young Peoples in C.E. follows on from Junior C.E.. The young people are trained to take their endeavour further and to take an active role in what they believe. This meeting offers young people the chance to meet and grow closer as a group but also to deepen their beliefs.


Seniors in Ireland are referred to as Comrades of Endeavour. They are groups of people that have served Christian Endeavour faithfully over the years and still wish to have an association with the Movement. They meet regularly together in their various societies.
