What is the higher tour?

The Higher Tour seeks to boldly proclaim the gospel to young people and see them supported and encouraged as they start their journey of faith alongside the local church.

The Higher Tour begins in schools. Our mission teams will spend a day in each school taking lessons and assemblies, drawing on our 25-year history of representing the Christian faith clearly and authentically in an educational context.

Following the schools’ days are evangelistic gigs– perfect for inviting young people and their friends. These will feature a clear presentation of the gospel and an opportunity to respond and be connected to a church.

The local church is at the heart of the Higher Tour. We long to see young people engaged in a healthy Christian community as they begin their journey of discipleship. After a young person makes a decision to follow Christ during the Higher Tour, our goal is that they would be quickly connected with a youth worker from one of our partner churches.

It's all about discipleship

The Higher App serves to help young people find partner churches quickly and easily. Through the app, we’re using state-of-the-art technology to connect new Christians to our partner churches where they can continue their journey of faith and be supported in their new relationship with Jesus.

Our partner churches run Higher Sessions – six weeks of media-rich discipleship training focused on gospel-centred mission. We’ve developed the material using a blend of new media – including original music and video – to give young people the best start in their new life with Jesus.

The Higher Bible is a pocket-sized full copy of the New Living Translation (NLT) with 20 pages of specially commissioned articles introducing the big story of scripture and showing how it relates to our lives.
