We really love groups.
We believe that weekly, high-quality, Christian youth and children's groups are still the very best way to foster community, encourage growth and develop children and young people into disciples.
We produce Energize, our online resource and training programme, because we want to equip groups across the UK to be as effective as possible in sharing the Gospel. We believe that well resourced and supported groups are the best places for young disciples to explore faith and put it into action. They are still, after all these years, the most powerful tool we have at our disposal.
We really, REALLY, #lovegroups!
Our vision for 2020 is primarily focused on starting and supporting weekly groups - equipping them with the latest digital resources and training via our Energize platform. We will continue to offer well-run camps and discipleship trips that stretch faith and accelerate discipleship. We will also explore what it means to belong to Urban Saints - to cultivate a sense of welcome, belonging and a shared identity based on a passion for Christ and his mission.
We want to see all youth and children's groups become high quality and operating effectively. Energize provides fantastic resources to help all children and young people discover and explore the Gospel as well as develop and grow their faith. Energize also contains useful training content to ensure that your volunteers are as skilled and confident leaders as possible.
We want to provide all children and young people with opportunities to spend more time together on annual camps and holidays. These more focused experiences are great for discovering faith for the very first time but also for really digging into what it means to be a young disciple.
Pilgrimage has always been a part of a Christian's development. We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to take part in an overseas discipleship trip. Urban Saints are committed to facilitating these types of trips and will focus on removing the barriers to participation - whatever the circumstances of your group.
All these projects and resources are designed to help you offer the highest quality, most effective and impacting weekly groups - the best method of introducing young people to Christ and growing them on their discipleship journey.
