Church outreach in the local community
Engaging with local communities through Messy Church and The Gift of Years
Helping churches reach out with the love of Jesus Christ
BRF is the home of two programmes that churches are embracing to great effect as they seek to engage with their local communities and transform lives.
Through Messy Church and The Gift of Years we provide tried-and-tested models for outreach and community engagement that are being used by churches throughout the UK and, in the case of Messy Church, in more than 20 other countries.
As happens time and again in the BRF story, these programmes originated in local churches that were seeking to reach out to their communities in Jesus' name.
The role of BRF today is to help these programmes flourish and be as fruitful as they can be, and none of our work towards that goal would be possible without the prayer and financial support of individuals, churches and trusts. Find out more about how we're funded.
