Vision & values

Our vision is of an inclusive Christian movement transforming communities so that all young people can belong, contribute and thrive.

As the world learns to live with Covid, so are we. Our goal in 2022 is to better balance our mission with our resources, and this interim strategy guides this effort. It includes an objective to develop a new long-term strategy, which we will launch in early 2023.

Our Values

  • We welcome all
    We offer people the space they need to feel secure, respected, heard and valued; and we always protect, trust, hope and persevere.
  • We inspire
    We strive to inspire each person we meet to realise their full potential in all they do.
  • We support
    We are committed to the wellbeing of the communities we serve and believe in the positive benefit of participation, locally and in the wider world.
