The Scattering - The Message

The Scattering

The Scattering is a week of mission for young people who want to put their faith into action! Running in the summer holidays in London and the North East, young people are trained and equipped for mission and are then scattered in teams to partner with a local church and proclaim the gospel to that community.

The Scattering 2024

The Scattering is returning in 2024! Due to the success of The Scattering in London in 2023, we will be holding The Scattering in 2024 in two locations, on two separate weeks for anyone aged 13-18! You can come to either, or both! Whichever you chose, this is an opportunity not to miss. For more information please contact us (below).

North East: 20 to 26 July 2024
London: 3 to 9 August 2024
(Fully Booked)

What is The Scattering?

The Scattering is a residential event that runs in three stages over seven days: Equipping, Mission and Celebration.

Equipping Weekend

To kick off the week, our young people gather together for prayer and teaching, to press into God and hear his voice before being sent out on mission.

This is all to get the young people ready for a week of mission, where they will be split into smaller teams and scattered across the region to partner with local churches to bring the gospel to their community.

Mission week

Mission is at the very heart of what The Scattering is all about. We send the young people in their teams to a host church to begin their week of mission. Here, they will sleep and eat for the week, serve the local community and church and share the good news of Jesus. Each team’s week will look slightly different but will share the same heart and vision to share the gospel.


As the week comes to an end, all teams will gather together again to celebrate what God has done in and through the young people during the week. This is a time to look back on the week with gratitude and look forward on the weeks and months ahead and re-commission the young people to live a life on mission.

2023 Highlights

In 2023, we saw 70 young people take part in The Scattering. As they shared their faith, they got to pray for 680 people, share the gospel with over 450, saw eight miracles of healing and led 62 people to Jesus! It’s so incredible to see our young people stepping out to see people come to Jesus.

Check out the highlights below:

Become A Church Host

In order to run these weeks, we partner with local churches. It means we can reach local communities in an authentic way, and invite people to the partner church as we tell them about Jesus.

Become A Team Leader

We’d also love people to come and lead one of our teams of young people. Could this be you? Find out more and get involved below.
