children, youth and schools

We long to see children and young people in London, who are least likely to have Christian friends, encounter Jesus.

More than a third of London’s children live in poverty and many are from Muslim backgrounds or part of families who’ve come to London from another country. Many young people live fragmented, chaotic lives. Some are in gangs or at risk of falling into gangs, and we know teens who carry knives and others who have tragically been stabbed and killed.

There are around two million children and young people in London. We estimate around half of them don’t have a Christian friend. We want to work together with churches to help reach them with the gospel. 

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 

Working together with churches

We partner with churches to share the gospel with London’s least reached children and young people.  

Together, we can launch youth groups, go into schools and start up community activities. Everything from after-school clubs and football training, to toddler groups and summer camps, are in the mix – as long as they build relationships with people and create opportunities to share the gospel.
