We want every young person to have the opportunity to come on a Venture or Falcon holiday, regardless of their financial circumstances. Thank you for blessing children and teenagers through a one-off gift, regular support, a church donation or a legacy.

The Big Give 2021

This Christmas, bring the light of Christ to children, teenagers and adults here in the UK and Ireland. With your support, we can help churches reach many more people of all ages with the good news of Jesus through the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Research from the Church of England shows that 76% of Christian adults made the decision to follow Christ when they were younger than 18. With no-one under the age of 16 on a Sunday at almost 40% of churches, we need bold, effective action to reach children and young people in these crucial, formative years.

With your donation, we can help churches reach 8-18s through Ventures, Falcons and School Ventures. These holidays are a wonderful opportunity to show and share the good news of Jesus with young people, and connect them to local churches.

‘The leaders shared Jesus in a way that young people can understand. It’s hard to live as a Christian on my own. I hope to go to a church when I go to university and also stay in touch with friends and leaders from the Venture via social media.’ Sophia, 18

This Advent season, when many people of all ages are engaging with the message of Christ our Saviour, thank you for giving generously, so that youngsters like Sophia can become part of God's family.

'Through all the fun and activities, worship and teaching, God comes close and shows the young people what he is like, and what it means to follow in the way of Jesus Christ.'

Church giving

Supporting our ministry as a church is a very rewarding experience! We offer a range of free materials to get your church excited about all God is doing through Venture and Falcon holidays. And if there's anyone who would like to come along themselves (either as a young person or a volunteer), we'd love to welcome them.

Regular giving

Regular gifts help us plan ahead, so we can be as effective as possible in helping 8-18s explore life with Jesus through life-changing holidays.

You can opt to set up a Standing Order to give monthly, quarterly or annually to either Ventures, Falcons or School Ventures.

By leaving a gift to Ventures and Falcons in your will, you will be helping young people live life to the full in Jesus beyond your own lifetime. Help us continue our essential kingdom ministry for generations to come.
