Want to motivate your whole church for mission and service? Jesus Shaped People is a comprehensive and all-embracing programme, with resources for adults, children and young people. It can benefit a wide spectrum of churches from different traditions and contexts, especially smaller urban, inner city, social housing estate churches, churches with few or no children or young people, or churches without a Vicar or Minister. For an in-depth introduction, you can download the JSP summary leaflet. Jesus Shaped People builds on five key priorities in the life and ministry of Jesus:

  • People
  • Teaching
  • Team Building
  • Prayer
  • Prophetic Challenge

The five priorities are explored through interactive small groups studies, dynamic preaching and lively worship. Each of the themes takes three weeks, making a fifteen-week programme in total. If you would like to explore engaging with Jesus Shaped People, reach us through the contact page. We'd love to hear from you!

Distracted, Diluted, Diverted: a Lent reflection

Lent is a funny mixture of a season. There’s a clear link with forty days that Jesus spent in the Judaean wilderness at the beginning of his ministry, following his baptism by John.
