The Higher Tour

The Higher Tour is the largest mission to young people in a generation.

The big dream of the Higher Tour is that, in partnership with local churches and other youth agencies, we present the good news of Jesus Christ to tens of thousands of young people and see thousands making a decision to become lifelong disciples of Jesus.

“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.”

We passionately believe that Jesus changes lives – not just for an evening at an action-packed event, but for good. We’re longing to see a shift in youth culture throughout this nation and to see Jesus’ name lifted Higher again.


The Higher Tour
in South Yorkshire

The Higher Tour is an initiative of The Message Trust and, in partnership with The Shine Project, The Higher Tour is coming to South Yorkshire in 2019!


What will The Higher Tour do?

During March 2019 The Higher Tour will engage with young people across South Yorkshire in four ways:

Dynamic Engagement in Schools

Our missions teams work in schools taking lessons and assemblies, addressing many key topics such as bullying, self esteem, peer pressure, relationships and decision making. We want to inspire young people to creatively look for ways in which the can make a positive difference in their home, schools and local communities.
If you are involved in a secondary school check out how you can get connected.

High-energy Evangelistic Gigs

These are events perfect for inviting young people and their friends. They feature a clear presentation of the gospel and an opportunity to respond and be connected to a church.
See highlights from Higher Manchester 2016.

Partnership with the Local 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.
Bring Higher to your church.

Cutting-edge Discipleship

We’ve developed a suite of resources perfect for churches and youth groups. The Higher App helps young people engage with Higher Sessions, while the Higher Bible helps them to engage with the word of God.
Have a look at the discipleship resources.
