WELCOME TO MESSAGE CANADA

WE ARE THE MESSAGE

The Message exists to share the Christian message in words and actions to young people through creative mission, community transformation and Christ-centred enterprise.

The Message was founded by Andy Hawthorne OBE in Manchester, UK in 1992. Since then, we have been developing innovative programmes to share Jesus with the hardest to reach – and we’re now based across the UK and in South Africa, Canada and Germany. In the deprived neighborhood of Downtown Eastside (DTES) in Vancouver, we’ve planted an Eden team, made up of Christians who have chosen to live sacrificially by moving in long-term to share the gospel and see the community transformed from the inside out.

EDEN

Eden teams bring transformation to their communities from the inside out. Eden team members make their homes and live long term in disadvantaged neighborhoods, sharing their lives and the gospel. This inspires achievement and growth in people as they are mentored and become disciples of Jesus. The atmosphere changes, leaders are raised, and communities are changed for good.

“‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. They will say,

“This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.”

Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’

Ezekiel 36:33-36
