 “For many, many years now Fusion has been at the cutting edge of running dynamic, missional, impacting youth cafés around the world. This resouce is a welcome training manual which lays foundational principles and provides practical steps needed to serve young people through loving, caring, Christ-centred community. Get ready to be equipped and empowered to impact young lives! Colin and Melissa Piper, Global Youth Movement, World Evangelical Alliance


"Informal café environments have real potential to create spaces for life giving youth ministry to be ignited. The main contribution of this new resource is to call us back to the importance of building a culture anchored in core values lived out by those who shape the vision and serve the young people. Additionally the knowledge, practical tips and good questions presented will add value to those committed to engaging in their community in order that they would see redemption’s story unfold around them." Jim Brown, Director, Exodus Europe

What are youth cafés and how can they help young people discover the kingdom of God?

This stream covers how to establish an effective, strategic and integrated youth café outreach in your community.


In youth cafés we have the privilege of welcoming in the young people of our communities. How do we model to them the love of Christ in such a way that we encourage them to develop into the person they were made to be?

This stream provides a deeper understanding of the particular awarnesses necessary to work mercifully, compassionately and justly with young people.

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23

How do you build a shared life among your team so you together maintain an effective youth café outreach?

This stream will focus on important aspects of how your team can unite to create place where people find belonging and purpose. 


It is our desire that this material might resource many youth café teams throughout the UK and beyond. In previous years, this training has only been delivered by Fusion staff on a scale limited to their availability. It’s our hope that this material might equip and encourage many different groups of kingdom hearted youth workers, with the physical presence of a Fusion trainer no longer a limiting necessity!
