An interdenominational youth mission focussing on unchurched children and young people.

Since 1906 Urban Saints (formerly known as Crusaders) has been reaching out to children and young people with the good news of Jesus christ. We are passionate about working with children and young people who have no church connection, helping them to realise their full God-given potential as they jjourney from childhood to adulthood.

Young people connect with the movement in a variety of ways, including weekly youth groups, special events, holidays, community projects and training programmes. These activities are led by thousands of volunteers who are comprehensively trained and supported in order to help them work effectively and achieve the highest possible standards of youth work practice. Whilst much of our work is in the UK and Ireland, increasingly we are helping indigenous churches within countries in the developing world to set up and run outreach work among unchurches children and young people.
