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.
MUFIL 12th July…
We are a group of youth leaders from across Leeds and Bradford. We gather young people and leaders three times a year (two residentials and one evening). Our next gathering is a Summer BBQ at PUDSEY PARISH CHURCH, CHURCH LANE, LS28 8BE. Our hope is that each time we gather young people will explore faith and grow in confidence and learn how to share and reveal Jesus in the places they occupy.
We are looking forward to welcoming young people from across Leeds, Bradford and surrounding areas. We will come together and have loads of fun exploring faith in a chilled atmosphere. MUFIL gatherings are normally open to young people of secondary school age but we open up the July gathering to those in year 6 as it gives them a great opportunity to see what is on offer at our Mission United Faith In Life gatherings that happen across the year and help a generation explore faith in Jesus.
During the evening you will hear from young people who will share about the fun they have had at past Mission United Faith In Life gatherings and how being involved has helped them build a faith in Jesus and become more aware of how God wants to use them to share their faith with others.
We will have a short time of worship and a talk that will give a flavour of what to expect at our residentials.
We will have a BBQ with Ice-creams. To help us to cater for all, we will need info on young peoples’ dietary needs by 1st July at the latest.
We are excited to have DJ Corban joining us. His DJ set will get us all up and moving.

Booking Lines Are Open
Book your ticket online using Guestlist on the link below. It is also really important that we receive all your medical forms (for youth and leaders) in advance of our residential gatherings. Please note that we only need medical forms completed and submitted to us when young people are attending a residential. For evening gatherings, there is a requirement for the local group leader to take overall responsibility for the young people who attend within that group. Therefore for any evening gatherings, please complete your own medical and consent forms.
Bursary Available For Residentials
We have a bursary available for individuals who may need some help towards the cost of MUFIL residentials. To find out more information and to apply please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
We recognise that sometimes plans change and so we can offer a refund up to 14 days before the event. After this time we would be happy to offer a name change on the booking, however, we wouldn’t be able to offer a refund of any costs.
