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!

What's it like to run Jesus Shaped People?

Revd Graham Potter shares his story of running Jesus Shaped People in the parish of Eston Christ Church with Normanby St George, on the southern side of Middlesbrough.

Changes at JSP

Sharon Blyth is moving on from Jesus Shaped People to an exciting new role with Diocese of Exeter. Sharon will no longer be working as our Children, Families and Young People Champion for JSP but will still be supporting through a voluntary role with our social media.

Being Jesus in the Community

At this time of year, we see our communities coming together and offering generosity and hospitality to so many people.  We know this value of reaching out is 'not just for Christmas', but how do we approach this as a church, to be like Jesus?
