Youth and Schools

We’re passionate about reaching young people with the good news of Jesus, taking a message of hope to a generation who desperately need to hear it.

Through work in schools and an online campaign the Festival Manchester Schools and Youth team are desperate to see a generation transformed by the gospel!

In the summer term of 2022, mission teams and bands will take the Love Where U Live Schools Tour into high schools across Greater Manchester. In assemblies, lessons and schools gigs, the gospel will be shared with young people in a relevant way. Through music we’ll communicate the message of hope, and in lessons topics like resilience. wellbeing, identity and prejudice and discrimination will be taught from a Christian perspective, with teams sharing their personal stories of faith.

At the same time, an online campaign will take the gospel message to young people and engage with them online – somewhere they spend so much of their time!

The schools tour and online campaign will culminate in a large-scale evangelistic event as part of the Festival Manchester weekend, featuring mission teams and bands and all in partnership with the local church.  

But we don’t want Festival Manchester to end there!

Discipleship resources will help equip local partner churches to continue journeying with young people in their faith and encourage them to become lifelong disciples of Jesus.
