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.

"Academy was all about stepping out of my comfort zone, it pushed me in all areas of my life. But through it I learnt more about who God is as well as how to best use my gifting's to evangelise."

"Academy was the fusion of growing in my understanding and knowledge of God but also of my own potential and character, resulting in a greater desire to see people reached with the gospel and having opportunities and experiences beyond what I ever could have expected."

"If you want to be stretched, empowered, thrown in to the deep end, then Message Academy is for you. All of those things happened to me. It gave me the right tools to be able to tell others about Jesus."
