We can give you 40,000 reasons.
That's the number of young people and children Urban Saints as an organisation connect with every week through over 1,200 local groups, special events, holidays, community projects and training programmes.
Your gifts to Urban Saints - Westbrook ensure we can continue to offer a residential centre where hundreds of groups can come and experience the love of God through teaching, games, and the building of genuine friendships.
The church is making a huge difference but we know that 50% of all local churches have no provision for children and young people at all. A large percentage of these children also do not have the financial means to be able to holiday away from the area that they live in. Being able to go away on a residential can help in so many different areas of life from becoming more independent to learning new and valuable life skills.
Urban Saints and its own dedicated centre - Westbrook, are committed to seeing this change - and you can really help us. Your giving can have a dramatic effect on the mission of the church, and the precious lives of these children and young people.
Your gift would enable Urban Saints - Westbrook to:
We can't all be youth workers but we can all play our part to help children and young people fulfil their God-given potential.
"I have had the privilege of participating in numerous Urban Saints events having been a group member since the age of 8, each event being individual and special. There are not many organisations out there willing to give up their time for us youth, struggling to live as Christians in a secular culture with all its temptations.
But Urban Saints gives us the opportunity to grow, learn about ourselves and others and improve our skills in general. I was a young leader for the first time this year on a camp. It was inspirational seeing God work through such young children. Every time I attend an Urban Saints event, I know that someone has been touched by God."
