What is Mission United Faith In Life?
We are a group of youth leaders from across Leeds and Bradford who gather young people three times a year (two residentials and one evening). Our vision is to help young people see the importance of knowing who Jesus is, their identity in Christ and God’s plans for them.
Our gatherings seek to equip all who attend to share Jesus in their every day lives. We give them an opportunity to get involved in local mission activities led by partner churches. When we meet young people experience times of worship and impactful Bible teaching with a life application focus. We love providing a memorable experience with lots of interactive entertainment, live bands and fun. Each gathering creates an environment where young people have a great time together and are inspired to live out their faith within their local community.
Since our gatherings began in 2012 we have seen over 500 young people take part and we are excited to see what God has in store in the future. We meet three times a year in February, July and October.
Who is MUFIL Gatherings Open to?
If you work with secondary age young people (regardless of where they are in their faith journey), you are invited to bring them along to any of the MUFIL gatherings. Our gatherings will offer your group the chance to meet young people from across Leeds and Bradford, explore faith, be encouraged to live for Jesus and take part in mission activities as well as have lots of laughs along the way!
Why do we Arrange MUFIL Gatherings?
Youth leaders we are in partnership with are passionate about working together to create opportunities to inspire and equip young people both within their everyday life and beyond the local church. They are committed to becoming part of a united movement which looks to help young people explore and rely on Jesus, learn a biblical understanding of missional living and encounter Jesus through worship and social action.

We really value any donations that enable us to provide these faith building and life impacting experiences for young people. 100% of all donations go towards enabling young people to participate who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to attend the gatherings. £25 would cover the cost of one young person attending a MUFIL residential

Why Go? – £100 to young people and their mission ideas.
Exciting Funding News: Why Go?
With a huge thank you to Scripture Union, we are excited to announce that we are launching a great opportunity for your youth groups. At the next Mission United Faith In Life your young people will have the opportunity to put together a proposal for up to £100 to deliver a mission idea to their peers and to their local communities. We are calling this new initiative Why Go?
We can’t wait to hear the vision and ideas that young people share and to give them the tools and resources they need to put this proposal in to action.
Our team will help you and your young people from the planning stages through to the delivery of their mission activity and we will potentially see many communities across Leeds and Bradford impacted by the actions of young people sharing the good news of Jesus.
We would love your young people to join us and to have chance to see their faith be put in to action. Please contact us for more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or to book your place click above.
