Come to learn, be inspired, and to serve...
This summer XLP is teaming up with local churches in London to offer you a fantastic week of urban mission in the heart of London. If you have a passion for youth work, want to put your faith into practice, or just fancy a taste of what London has to offer - XLP’s Urban Mission Week is a great way of experiencing an amazing week of Christian mission and most importantly, making a real positive difference to families and communities in some of London’s most deprived boroughs.
We welcome both individuals and youth groups to attend the week – it’s a great way to meet new people and build new relationships and also a good opportunity to strengthen and develop existing ones within your youth group.
What will the week look like?
Why get involved?
“What I experienced was an intense week of social action that really pushed me and required my faith to become a reality.”
There is a strong emphasis throughout the week on Bible study and worship. You are encouraged to explore and develop your faith on a personal level but are also given the opportunity to outwork the Word practically, putting your faith into action through different activities.
“I left with a real hope that the Kingdom of God would become a reality in the lives of all those living in Tower Hamlets.”
“To be part of a team of people who gave themselves so recklessly to God, each other and the outside community, in the way that the Urban Mission Week team did, was truly inspiring.”
