Premier Youthwork (previously Youthwork) is an evangelical Christian magazine published monthly in the United Kingdom by Premier.

The magazine started life in the early 1990s as a supplement of Premier Christianity magazine (known as Alpha at that time). Its prominence in Alpha was due to editor John Buckeridge, who had joined the Alpha team in 1989. By 1992 he had developed it into a small bi-monthly black and white title and soon had a wide readership consisting largely of youth leaders; by 1996 it was being printed monthly. John Buckeridge was active in the organisation of Brainstormers, a weekend conference aimed at youth leaders. The event would continue for a further seven years and, as a result of its success, the Youthwork partnership was formed with Spring Harvest. The partnership grew to include a total of six organisations, but has now disbanded.

In 1999 both Christianity and Youthwork (as they were then known) were bought by Premier Christian Media Trust chairman David Heron. Every issue contains news and features relevant to Christian youth workers, plus a Resource section with curriculum Adaptable Meeting Guides. The current Editorial Director is John Buckeridge and the current Editor is Phoebe Thompson. Regular contributors to the magazine include Mike Pilavachi, Martin Saunders, Tom Wade, Jamie Cutteridge, Mark Oestreicher, Mark Yaconelli, Jimmy Young and Jenny Baker.
