Conversation with Andy Hawthorne from the Message Trust

This Sunday, 19th August, Andy Hawthorne from The Message will be speaking at Gate Church International. The meeting will take place at 5:45pm for a 6pm start in the church's main auditorium.

Andy will give a 30 minute talk about his work with The Message, reaching young people in inner city Manchester, followed by a break for coffee and then an interview and audience Q&A time.

The Message is a worldwide movement with a passion to share Jesus Christ with the hardest-to-reach young people, through creative mission, community transformation and Christ-centred enterprise. The Message Trust works:

  • In Schools - where creative arts mission teams relevantly share the gospel of Jesus through music, dance and theatre
  • In Communities - with a sharp focus on the most deprived neighbourhoods, urban missionaries live sacrificially, sharing the gospel and building authentic communities.
  • In Prisons - helping young people to find Jesus and assisting with housing and jobs through the Message Enterprise Centre
