The Higher Tour is an initiative of The Message Trust. The Message has been working in schools, prisons and communities for more than 25 years, sharing the hope that faith in Jesus Christ brings. Together with Cambridge & District Youth for Christ, Newmarket & District Youth for Christ, The Diocese of Ely and Scripture Union, Mission Direct make up the Core Partners of Higher Cambs.
The Higher Tour seeks to boldly proclaim the gospel to young people and see them supported and encouraged as they start their journey of faith alongside the local church.
The Higher Tour begins in schools. Our mission teams will spend a day in each school taking lessons and assemblies, drawing on our 25-year history of representing the Christian faith clearly and authentically in an educational context.
Following the schools’ days are evangelistic gigs– perfect for inviting young people and their friends. These will feature a clear presentation of the gospel and an opportunity to respond and be connected to a church.
The local church is at the heart of the Higher Tour. We long to see young people engaged in a healthy Christian community as they begin their journey of discipleship. After a young person makes a decision to follow Christ during the Higher Tour, our goal is that they would be quickly connected with a youth worker from one of our partner churches.
