What is Higher Cambs?

Higher Cambs is the biggest mission to young people in a generation – and the Higher Sessions are now taking place!

Higher Cambs 2018 saw 4 talented bands deliver a days of lessons, workshops and assemblies in 33 schools across the region. Over two weeks of outreach, we spoke to over 14,000 young people, of which 1925 attended a gig and 784 chose to respond to the message.

Our aim is to enable as many young people as possible to discover life to the full in Jesus, with the help of local churches.

We want to hear your feedback!

We’ve created a short feedback form to gather comments from those involved in the Higher Cambs mission in any way. If you have any feedback, comments, encouragement or suggestions, please fill in the feedback form here…

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.

Young people spend a significant amount of their time in school and so thats where we focus 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.
