Breaking ! We are delighted to reveal Rebecca Holland is joining the JSP team. Rebecca will the JSP Champion for the Diocese of Chester, one of our partner dioceses.

New JSP Book - out now !

Jesus’ ministry was intensely focused on people, especially those marginalized in their own culture, and led to practical change and action. So why does much of the ministry of the church does today fail to reflect these priorities?

JSP Innovation

‘JSP Innovation’ is our latest project. Funding from the Church Commissioners has been secured for a strategic partnership with the Dioceses of Bristol, and Chester to partner with 10 parishes (5 in each) in disadvantaged communities.

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?

Great to be in Leeds

Resolutely stepping forward with IGEN!

Intergenerational Ministry can sometimes be challenging to navigate, but at Jesus Shaped People we love sharing our vision for this.

Maybe you are short on volunteers in your church?  Or do not have many children in your congregation?  Or maybe you want to use a wider range of learning styles in yur worship? IGEN could be just what you need. 

Gathering with Christians!

God's People gathered this week! … at least some of us did - for the Christian Resources Exhibition.  

JSP is for JOY
