East Midlands - The Message

East Midlands

Our work in the Midlands has continued to grow and increase so we’ve launched a new hub in the East Midlands to continue to boldly share the good news of Jesus in schools and in communities across the area.

We can’t wait to plant more community-transforming Eden teams, build up our creative schools work, reach young people with a Message Bus and look at opportunities for Christ-centred enterprise and work in prisons across the whole of the East Midlands.

Bringing Hope

Mission team NXT CHAPTR were recently in Lincoln sharing lessons from our new Still Standing tour all about wellbeing and resilience, from a Christian perspective. As they headed into schools across the city, they got to encourage and equip the young people as well as invite them along to the end-of-week gig.

One young person they met in school was Rosie who shared that she was being bullied. It had got to the point where she felt self-conscious and like she didn’t have anything to believe in. She told NXT CHAPTR that her life at home was hard too because her mum was often in and out of hospital, and everything that was happening had made her feel like she’d lost all hope and had tried taking her life. 

After talking with her more, the team encouraged Rosie to reach out to her school’s safeguarding and pastoral team and she’s now getting the support she needs. They also invited her along to the end-of-week gig where she could hear more about the hope and peace that Jesus gives and gave her a free ticket.

She came along to the gig on the Friday along with 350 other young people. That evening, 80 responded to the gospel and 200 Bibles were given out. Rosie was so excited when she got hers! After the gig, lots of young people, including Rosie, got in touch with the band to say how much they enjoyed it. One told NXT CHAPTR, ‘I had a really great night tonight! You’ve made so many people feel welcome and appreciate themselves and let them be who they are! I really enjoyed it’ and another said, ‘Thank you for giving me the best time of my life’.

Telling Their Mates

We love seeing young people get excited about sharing their faith. This is why up and down the country each month we get them together to encourage each other, pray together and learn the skills they need to be able to use every opportunity possible to tell their friends and families about Jesus.
