"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
Those are words that Jesus said.
He explained that he offers us a chance to experience life to the full. Not a life based on achievements or failures, selfies and relationships, but a life of adventure and discovery, with a direct connection to a God who loves us no matter what, and will walk with us through everything in life.
The Bishop of Kensington (Graham Tomlin) wants young people to have an opportunity to ask their questions about faith and explore what Jesus meant when he said, "I have come to give you LIFE to the FULL". During lent, Bishop Graham and a team of youth workers will be coming into six secondary schools to meet students like you and listen to your thoughts and questions.
This message can be life changing. It changed Bishop Graham's life, a MOBO award-winning rapper Guvna B’s life (watch his story below) and it has changed the lives of millions of people across the world today. We're giving you the chance to explore this message for yourself, during a normal week at school.
A message from Bishop Graham...
"Whatever you believe at the moment, I encourage you to approach the week with an open mind and heart. Ask us your questions, take part in the activities and I guarantee you'll learn something new, or even better, discover God. I'm excited to be spending a day at each school during lent, meeting you all and talking about faith together."

Dear God, t
hank you for sending your son, Jesus, to take away all the wrong things I've done, so that I can know how much you love me. I accept what Jesus did on the cross and ask you to come into my heart.
