WHO WE ARE
Following Jesus’ mission, we engage with youth in London by building relationships, developing potential, and exploring faith in partnership with the community and local churches.
We want to be fully engaged in and with our neighbourhoods and to nurture healthy community interaction with staff, volunteers, families, local partners and most of all, young people.
We believe that personal faith is
important and that spiritual questions can and should be explored with great freedom, respect and integrity.
We strive to provide a safe,
welcoming place where youth can come,
connect, feel appreciated and have great fun.
We desire to journey alongside and build strength into young lives during these important adolescent years: encouraging them to discover, grow, lead and learn.
