The Message Trust
- In schools: Our seven creative arts mission teams relevantly share the gospel of Jesus through music, dance and theatre, seeing thousands of young people make decisions to live for Christ every year.
- In local communities: With a sharp focus on the most deprived neighbourhoods, we recruit and send long-term Eden teams to live alongside young people, reducing crime and bringing new life and hope to forgotten places.
- In prisons: We help young people find Jesus in prison and assist with housing and jobs through our Message Enterprise Centre, breaking the spiral of youth reoffending and saving the taxpayer millions.
The mark of a life changed by Jesus is the desire to see others changed too. Time and time again, we see young people going from being the problem to the solution thanks to our work. Many members of our mission teams were once drug abusers, dealers or violent criminals. We celebrate a handful of the best stories of transformation at our annual Urban Hero Awards ceremonies in Manchester and London. We are unashamed about our witness and dependence on Jesus Christ – the surest hope for the transformation of our society.
