Regenerate and its Work in Yate

95% of our children and young people do not go to church. So, we must go to them. Jesus said to his disciples, “Go” and that is what he is still asking of us today. Regenerate’s vision: ‘To be an agent of change, living out and proclaiming the good news, unconditional love and hope of Jesus Christ in order to bring wholeness to the children, young people and families of Yate, Chipping Sodbury and surrounding areas.’ As part of the Churches Together in Yate and Chipping Sodbury, Regenerate has been working in our local schools for over 20 years bringing the love of Jesus to the children in words and actions.
