Who We Are

The Message Trust is a worldwide movement passionately sharing the love of Jesus Christ in words and actions with the youth at risk and communities.

The Message South Africa was launched in 2014 in Cape Town as the first international hub of The Message Trust, which was founded in the UK by Andy Hawthorne in 1988. The Message South Africa is now part of a growing international movement which we call The Message Family.

From our base in Cape Town, we have a vision to impact at risk youth in tough communities across the city and beyond. In schools, communities, on stages and in prisons you’ll find us giving hope to the next generation by sharing the gospel with them. Each and every day we see lives transformed as people discover their true identity.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:19
