We have one mission

Resourcing your church to see young people’s lives changed by Jesus.

Free Trial

The thing is, youth ministry is a tough gig. You’ve got sessions to plan, church commitments to fulfil, communication with volunteers, your own spiritual well-being, limited time and loads of other stuff to think about. But we believe in the beauty and power of the local church, and that God uses faithful people like you, serving in their local context, one young person at a time.

With all this in mind, we think we might have a few tricks up our sleeve to make your life a bit easier:

We’ve created a quick and easy way for you to prepare complete youth sessions. We have a ton of quality content at your fingertips that’s Biblically sound, relevant, engaging and adaptable to your unique context.

When you subscribe, you get access to the termly curriculum of your chosen resource, our incredible session builder where you can search through hundreds of sessions and activities, and the subscriber area we call My Hub, where you can add your team members.

Across the year we cover 6 key teaching themes, structured to hit every aspect of what it means to discover the gospel and grow – wherever someone is at on their journey of faith. You’ll always have enough sessions for the current school term, each session is designed to include a variety of components: Biblical teaching, a group game and activity, video content, prompts to chat, reflect, create, and a challenge for your young people to take away into the week.

If you prefer a pick’n’mix over a set menu, our session builder enables you to search and select from our massive catalogue, adding and adapting different components to reflect the needs and size of your youth group. You can even add your own unique activities. We know that the session builder can save you precious time, enabling you to put together a session in less than 20 minutes!

Ever dreamed of cloning yourself to give yourself more time? Well we may have the next best thing in our team members area. It will allow you to co-edit and easily share material with the team members and volunteers you invite.

Sounds good, right?

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t see your question here? Send us a message below.

How often is new material added?

New material is added termly, though you are welcome to use our search function to find sessions on multiple topics!

Do I have to follow the term curriculum?

The term curriculum has been designed and crafted to suit the flow of the academic term, taking into account key points in the calendar year. However, we recognise that every group is different and highly encourage you to curate the perfect curriculum for your group by using a mixture of the pre-determined curriculum and sessions found via our search.

What are the six key teaching themes?

Our six key teaching themes are six areas of focus that our termly resources rotate through in an academic year, ensuring that young people and children get a well-rounded faith curriculum. The themes are giving and serving, Jesus centred, connecting with God, living wisely, relationships and sharing the gospel. There are also additional sessions that don’t fit into any of these categories.

What are the different resources available to choose from?

Go is our discipleship resource for 7-11s, whilst Lumen is our discipleship resource for 11-18s. Both have a heart to see young people go deeper in their faith and pro-actively living it out. Meanwhile, Rock Solid is our evangelistic resource for young people designed to tackle topics from a faith-based angle in an accessible way!

What happens at the end of a free trial?

At the end of your thirty day trial, your account will remain active but you will no longer be able to access our resources. If you would like to subscribe to one of our resources, you can do that by heading to the payment page in ‘My Hub’.

Can I create a team account?

Yes! You can connect members of your childrens/youth team to your paying account so that you can access and share sessions. You can add team members once you subscribe!

WE THINK YOU’RE IN SAFE HANDS.

Our team consists of youth work experts, evangelists and speakers with decades of collective youth work experience. Every year we lead seminars and youth venues at some of the biggest Christian festivals in the UK, such as Spring Harvest, Limitless Fest, DTI and previously Soul Survivor. We’ve also run residentials and stand-alone events across the wider church network, so we understand how things may vary across different denominations.

We are currently engaged in weekly youth work in our local church context and provide support across our network of 60+ local centres. Our work has been recognised by multiple Christian media outlets, including an award for producing the Best-Selling Youth Bible for 2019 and Bible of the Year for our Families Bible in 2022. But the main thing is, we want your youth ministry to be as epic as possible, so we’re confident that our tools will make the difference. We’ve helped resource hundreds of youth leaders for decades across the UK. We’d love to do the same for you.
