Message Academy is a gap year training course for 18-25s in youth work, evangelism and creative arts, all designed to grow your character, your relationship with God and your effectiveness in sharing the gospel.

Academy students benefit from The Message Trust’s 25 years of experience in both cutting edge creative arts (World Wide Message Tribe, LZ7, Twelve24) and long-term incarnational youth mission (Eden, Eden Bus and prisons ministry).

So whether you feel called to the stage or the streets, to work in a school hall or the Albert Hall, to disciple in a youth cell or a prison cell, we'll prepare and equip you to make a difference for God.

We were pushed out of our comfort zone and had many opportunities to tell people about Jesus.
