The Message has been rooted in the Midlands through Eden for a number of years. In 2018, we took our missional work to the next level through Higher Midlands 2018, seeing thousands of young people at our gigs and introducing many to Jesus for the first time.

With Hub Leader Chipper Betts, we’ll be planting more community-transforming Eden teams, building up our creative schools work, looking to reach young people with a Message Bus and looking at opportunities for Christ-centred enterprise and work in prisons across the whole of the Midlands from our office base in Walsall.

The Higher Tour

The Higher Tour is heading to Coventry in November 2020. The Higher Tour is an RE initiative run in partnership with the local church. Our mission teams go into schools across the UK to deliver RE lessons and culminates in an evangelistic gig on the final night of the tour. Here every young person will be offered the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel and connect with their local church. 

Upcoming Events

We don’t have any events scheduled at the moment – check back soon.
