What is Higher Cambs?
Higher Cambs is the biggest mission to young people in a generation, and it’s almost here!
Higher Cambs 2018 will see 4 talented bands deliver 30 days of lessons, workshops and assemblies in more than 30 schools across the region. Over two weeks of outreach, we’ll speak to 15,000 young people, give away 1,000 Bibles and train 100 young evangelists.
And we want to do all this to invite as many young people to discover life to the full in Jesus, with the help of local churches.

The Higher Tour is an initiative of The Message Trust, an award-winning charity that has been working with young people for 25 years. It was founded by Andy Hawthorne OBE and continues to work in locations across the UK. The Higher Tour is the largest mission to young people in a generation.
The big dream of the Higher Tour is that, in partnership with local churches and other youth agencies, we present the good news of Jesus Christ to tens of thousands of young people and offer them the opportunity to make a decision to become a lifelong disciple of Jesus.
Young people spend a significant amount of their time in school and so thats where we’re focussing much of our attention during the tour. The Message Trust’s bands offer a variety of musical genres and lesson content, but each team aims to bring a positive message to young people in schools and see them reach their full potential.
