MGP Youth & Children

Who are we?

We are part of the Midlands Gospel Partnership. We exist to promote Bible-Centred Youth and Children’s Ministry in the Midlands. We aim to do this in the following ways:


We host a number of training events each year. Our flagship training event is Growing Young Disciples, held on a Saturday for anyone involved in youth and children’s ministry with their church. The Big Day Out is for those in (or involved in) fulltime children’s ministry. We also offer bespoke training to guide and resource youth & children’s ministry. If you are interested in training sessions for the youth leaders in your church, or might get together with a group of local churches then please contact us:


Planning, organising and hosting events that will encourage and equip youth and children’s workers in their ministry, and events that faithfully proclaim the truth of the Gospel to young people in our region.


Keeping you up-to-date with events and training opportunities in our region through regular newsletters. If you would like to join our mailing list, please click here.
