The Higher Tour

Equipping, encouraging and strengthening the local church to reach young people with the life-transforming, world-shaking gospel of Jesus is what the Higher Tour is all about. An initiative of The Message Trust we want to work with you to raise a generation of culture-shifting disciples.

Higher combines innovative schools work with large-scale gospel proclamation events and cutting-edge discipleship resources. We passionately believe that the transforming power of Jesus is not just for one evening at an action-packed event, but for good – so we want to see new Christians become rooted in a local church to continue their journey of faith and engage in long-term discipleship.

This year, the Higher Tour is going online. Young people in schools can access brand-new online lessons tacking some of the issues they face today from a Christian perspective – things like resilience, wellbeing, prejudice and discrimination. Young people are also invited along to the high energy gigs happening via Message Live every Friday evening.

How it works

Currently, the Higher Tour is online, giving young people in schools the chance to experience the Higher Tour and hear the good news of Jesus through our new online lessons and online gigs. Find out more on our online tour page.

When they’re in schools with the tour, our mission teams usually spend a day in each school taking lessons and assemblies, drawing on our 27-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.
