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:


We aim to put on events that encourage and equip the young people in our region to live for Jesus. Currently we run a residential camp for children in school years 3-6.
