At XLP we believe the church, with its inspiring history of social action is perfectly placed within each community to have a positive and transformative impact.

As a Christian charity we strive to work in collaboration with and support the efforts of the local church through providing training and resources, events like ‘Expect’ and the placement of our gap year students in local churches across London to be an integral part of what that church community is doing in their area.

Our goal is to support what you are doing in your community and partner with your church as you strive to make a real, lasting difference in your local communities.

Find out more about some of the ways your church can get involved or collaborate with XLP:

Gap Year: Would you like to host a Gap Year student at your church? Or perhaps you’d like to join the XLP Experience Gap Year? Find out more here.

XL-Mentoring: Is about equipping the church to mentor young people struggling with life to find hope and a brighter future.

LONDON: Training takes place locally in London through our fantastic team of mentoring managers. Go here, if you’d like to find out more about becoming a mentor or get your church involved.

NATIONAL: We run training for churches across the UK, equipping them to run their own mentoring projects in their local area. Find out more and explore how your church or youth project can get involved.

(We have also recently become a recognised project with the Cinnamon Network – check out our promo video – coming soon!)

Expect: An informal evening of prayer and worship at All Hallows on the Wall. Takes place once a term. Dates will be announced on Twitter, facebook and our website.

Book a Tour Date: ‘When Faith Gets Shaken’ is the latest book to be released by XLP’s CEO and founder, Patrick Regan OBE.
