North West

Since our first days holding youth events at a church in Stockport, The Message has grown and today we’re working with young people across the UK and the globe, but we still call Manchester our home.

To ensure that our home city is ‘kept hot’, we launched our North West hub in 2019 with a team focused solely on making mission happen across Greater Manchester and the rest of the North West.

From Eden and bands going into schools to Respect ME and Genetik Sessions, there’s already so much happening here, but we don’t want to stop there.

We want young people to have repeated opportunities to hear the gospel and be able to respond to it for themselves.

Find out more about what we’re up to and how you can connect with us below.

No More Knives Tour

Knife crime and the devastating impact this is having on lives is never far from the headlines today. Something must change, so the No More Knives tour is heading into high schools across Manchester to show young people there is another way.

Combining music with powerful stories and teaching, lessons and assemblies are run in schools that equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to say no to knives and help them discover their full value and identity.
