Every church, whatever it looks like, wants to be better at reaching out to young people but each church faces different issues and struggles. A partnership with Thrive can provide the support to overcome obstacles and access the best support and advice.

Experience shows that whilst it is easy to talk about how a church can improve its provision for young people, it is much harder to take action. Partnering with Thrive helps a church to not just talk about their youth ministry, but to ensure that action is taken.

We have developed a scheme that ensures commitment and focused investment in each partnership church, which will see the youth ministry grow, develop, and thrive

Benefits of being a partner church

  • regular mentoring of one or two key leaders
  • church leadership support

As well as access to Thrive Youthwork Network and training, resources, and advice on the Thrive website.
