This year we’d be planning on stepping things up and taking the Higher Tour on the road throughout the UK with our bands and mission teams travelling thousands of miles across the length and breadth of the UK sharing the Christian faith in schools and holding outreach gigs. And the year got off to a great start with us running tours in North Wales and Southport, but then Covid-19 and lockdown meant that schools closed their doors for the year.
Since then a lot of things have changed, and our plans for The Higher Tour in 2020 have had to too.
We’ve been taking our time to pray and plan about how we can still reach young people with the gospel, and we’re really excited about our bands, here at the Message Trust are now ploughing their time and energy into Message Live – our brand-new online platform that’s broadcasting shows every day to reach young people with the good news of Jesus.
As we plan to reschedule all of the Higher Tours in the normal format to 2021, we would love it if you could pray for us as we explore some exciting alternatives for this year. And if you’d like to know more about The Higher Tour do not hesitate to get in touch.
We are excited for all that God is doing despite the recent changes, and we’d love it if you continue praying and supporting The Higher Tour through this next season.
Andy, Youth Leader
'We run a youth group and took eight new people to the Cambridge gig, including one girl who only found out about it that day. She responded to the gospel for the first time and then brought four of her friends to our youth cafe the following week! We've had record numbers at our youth club since then!'
'It's rare that in school hours we are allowed to give a gospel presentation let alone a response. However, in one of the schools we were allowed to do this and saw 300 pupils respond to what was said. It was unlike anything we've seen before.'
Message from a young person
'When I went to the Higher Tour you said that God turns your mess into a message. Those seven words have changed me. You have made me a better person and made me a stronger Christian - I want to thank you for that and also for changing so many other lives!'
