We can provide training, expertise and mentoring. Mission for us is a process not an event. We can help you look at local area strategies, church unity, building teams, running activities and the process of mission for your area. When a community’s culture is informed by Kingdom Values, an openness to the Good News that Jesus brings grows and mission becomes natural. We’d love to show you how to do this.
What we offer
We regularly run our Foundations for Life and Mission course across the world. Foundations is our mainstay that is complemented by a range of other courses, for a variety of arenas, such as The School of Mission and our bespoke courses. Check out our events section for upcoming training or get in touch with us about our bespoke offerings.
Our areas of expertise lie in youth work, community development and outreach. We have learnt how to set up a process whereby you can reach as much as 80% of the young people in your area and provide effective opportunities for them to respond to the Gospel. We can help you develop similar strategies for reaching other sections of your community.
‘Andy Prosser [of Shift Youth + Community] has been working with us at St Matthew’s since 2012. Initially he did some research into the local community which gave us an action plan for work with children and young people. He set up and continues to run a club with volunteers from the church for some of the most challenging young people in the area. Andy has been a huge support and encouragement for us to get involved in outreach in our community, and has given us so much of his time and expertise particularly in working with youngsters.’

‘Working with [Shift Youth + Community] is helping take what we already do as a church in our community to the next level. [SYC’s] ‘Process of Mission’ is shaping our approach and planning, bringing us closer to our God inspired dream of seeing our community transformed.’
