Dawn Savidge, a Children, Young People and Families Team Member for the Diocese of Leeds has produced a video to make churches in the diocese aware of the Higher Tour coming to Yorkshire in Spring 2019.
The Higher Tour is an initiative of The Message Trust, who have been working in schools and communities for more than 25 years, sharing the good news of Jesus to young people. The Higher Tour’s big dream is to partner with local churches and other youth agencies to bring the good news to thousands of young people.
The Higher Tour is coming to Yorkshire during March 2019. They will come to West Yorkshire from Monday 18th March to Saturday 29th March. The first two weeks will be focused on schools in the Wakefield, Leeds and Bradford areas.This will be followed by concerts, one in Wakefield on Saturday 23rd March and the other in Leeds on 30th March.
Dawn said, "We are so excited that the Higher Tour is coming to West Yorkshire. The Higher Tour are extremely good at what they do best, giving the good news of Jesus to young people in schools in a creative and impactful way. The Higher Tour are wanting to partner with local churches to ensure that the discipleship of young people continues in their local context and that excites me too. I would really recommend getting along to their church launch on October 27th."
If you wish to find out more, the Higher Tour is running a church launch night. This will be on Saturday 27th October from 7.30pm and the location is to be confirmed.
