With Churches

We believe it’s possible to shift culture at the heart of a community and we’d love to show you how.
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the needs in the community where your church is located?
You want to engage with your local community but you have no idea where to start?
Perhaps you already have some great programs going but you’re not seeing people take the next step and “join the church”?
What if you could have an expert help you develop a sustainable strategy for seeing your community transformed? A strategy that made perfect sense to you, your congregation and your community? What if your legacy was a growing church and thriving community?

We are part of an international Christian movement, with decades of experience seeing communities made more whole and individuals of all ages finding life as churches return to the heart of the neighbourhood. We’d love to partner with you, as you step out and see your community and its young people transformed by God’s kingdom.

We can provide coaching, 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 offer coaching to church leaders and their teams through which we help leaders grow their skills and awareness for taking innovative, strategic action so they leave behind a legacy of empowered, thriving individuals, and flourishing communities. Coaching can be done on a 1-2-1 basis or as group coaching. 

Bespoke Training

We offer bespoke training in the areas of Shaping Culture (of your church or your community), Mentoring, and Developing Holistic Missional Strategy. 


We offer mentoring for areas in which we have expertise. This can be short term and one off, for example around a community building event or program, or long term over the development of a holistic missional strategy.

‘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.’
