Featured resources

Here are links to some of the books and resources related to the topics covered today in the network and main plenary sessions.


Rooted – ‘Creating space for young people and children to explore who they are, why they matter and the difference Jesus can make in their life.’

Rooted creates ongoing opportunities for young people to reflect and celebrate themselves in relevant and engaging ways whilst exploring the big questions of life, well-being and God. This training will unpack the various tools created for you to explore how Rooted can be used to impact the lives of young people and children in your local school or community.

For those in Wales:

Revealing Jesus

As churches begin to make plans for the ‘new normal’ and start to think about their work with children and young people again, we invite you to join us for the launch of our new Revealing Jesus mission framework – an opportunity to discover a new way to reach ‘the 95’*

When: Wednesday 14th October, 7:30pm
Where: Right here!

Mission Possible Research

Based on a year of extensive evaluations of mission activity aimed at reaching ‘the 95’, this report is packed full of findings and, most importantly, recommendations to help you achieve success in your own missions. We hope you’ll find it a really useful tool for ensuring your future events make as much impact as possible.
