Want to motivate your whole church for mission and service? Jesus Shaped People is a comprehensive and all-embracing programme, with resources for adults, children and young people. It can benefit a wide spectrum of churches from different traditions and contexts, especially smaller urban, inner city, social housing estate churches, churches with few or no children or young people, or churches without a Vicar or Minister. For an in-depth introduction, you can download the JSP summary leaflet. Jesus Shaped People builds on five key priorities in the life and ministry of Jesus:

  • People
  • Teaching
  • Team Building
  • Prayer
  • Prophetic Challenge

The five priorities are explored through interactive small groups studies, dynamic preaching and lively worship. Each of the themes takes three weeks, making a fifteen-week programme in total. If you would like to explore engaging with Jesus Shaped People, reach us through the contact page. We'd love to hear from you!

Have you ever made an embarrassing mistake? if you have not then I would love to know your secret!  


We all know the saying, "Better to seek forgiveness than ask permission", but with a Wedding this would seem a bit of a risk.

Family Fun!

Holiday Clubs are often a stalwart of Christian outreach, but what happens when you are low on volunteers?  Or parents seem reluctant to drop off their children?  Or you are just lacking in a little bit of energy and time?
