Message Bus - The Message

Message Bus


Bringing the love of God to young people and the wider community, the Message Buses are state-of-the art mobile youth centres that work across the UK.

When they step onboard, young people find a safe place to go as well as somewhere packed full of stuff to do with their mates. Each bus is different but they’ll find things like games consoles, nail bars, climbing walls, slides, gaming PCs and much more.

But the buses are about more than just this. Every young person also gets to hear about how loved they are by Jesus and have a chance to explore this for themselves with our teams. As we park up and spend time in communities we see lives transformed.

Everything we do on the buses is in partnership with the local church. Working together means that the decisions young people make are for the long-term, as they have somewhere where they can get plugged into discipleship and grow in their faith.

“We get to meet young people where they are at, giving them an alternative to what they could be up to that night. And most importantly see lives transformed.”

How It Works


Our vision is to share the gospel in a relevant way in hard-to-reach communities and to equip the church to do the same. Partnering with local churches, the buses work consistently in the same place week by week. We see lives transformed and a reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour.

We now have six Message buses working in across the North West, Yorkshire, South Wales, Glasgow, London, Coventry and Warwickshire, and the surrounding areas.
