For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)

You are not what others think you are. You are what God knows you are.

The Evangelism and Discipleship Team is here to support every Christian as they grow in faith and share God's love with the people around them. Our vision is to motivate the million regular worshippers to pray, articulate and live out their faith seven days a week.

Setting God's People Free #everydayfaith 

Our daily lives are often very full. Full of things to do. Full of meetings and deadlines. Full of places to be. Full of people to meet. For some they may be full of time on our hands. Full of hopes we would like to fulfil. Full of things we don’t want to face. Where is God during the daily life we are dealt? How do we find God in fullness, in the full-ness of life?

Mission goes out from God. Mission is God's way of loving and saving the world.

The Evangelism and Discipleship Team are proud to support The Archbishop of York in his ministry around mission and spreading the Good News of God's love.

Children and Young People - Growing in Faith

We believe that children and young people can follow Jesus and be full members of the church, and that discipleship is possible at any age. They are integral to our churches, but we need to make sure there are no obstacles preventing them from getting involved

A Culture of Invitation

People are most likely to respond to God's invitation to know Him when that invitation is made by someone that they know and trust, a family member or a friend. 

Advance: The Evangelist Movement exists to promote and stir up the gift of the evangelist, building towards a huge year of outreach throughout the UK in 2020.

Through Evangelist Group Mentoring and the personal witness training offered from Advance Bootcamps, we are committed to equipping and empowering those who have a desire to prioritise the sharing of the gospel, be it from a stage or a one-to-one conversation. Alongside this we are praying and planning together for what an intentional, strategic, and spirit-filled year of mission will look like across the UK in 2020 as we commit to taking the gospel to the nation on an unprecedented scale.

Advance 2020 / Amplify 

Advance 2020 is keen to see the whole church unite around evangelism, seeking to identify, train and release over 1000 evangelists throughout 2020, sharing faith in both word and deed.

We, as youth agencies and denominations, are particularly keen to see this modelled amongst young people, especially those aged 11-18.

Imagine that our role as church leaders and youth ministers is to raise up an army of young people, young people who are actively and confidently sharing their faith with their peers. Amplify takes a small, hand picked and select group of these young people, with no more than 2 young people from any one church, and places them as part of a year-long programme.

Mission Academy Live:  One of the biggest challenges facing young people with regards to peer-to-peer evangelism is confidence. As part of addressing this, we have partnered with the following organisations to create a free resource, Mission Academy Live.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
