About us


We believe that the best people to reach students are students! We long to see a generation of Christ’s ambassadors living out the Gospel where they study. That’s why we’re all about: 


Inspiring students that Jesus is the best news this world has to offer, letting His beauty transform their hearts so that they can look… 


Seeking God in prayer, asking for His help and power to go… 


Sharing the life transforming message of Christ with their friends through their words and actions! 



Festive was formed by a small group of people with a big heart for Further Education. They had experience of ministering in FE Colleges and Sixth Forms and were aware of the lack of support available to Christian students, staff and chaplains. Working in partnership with Scripture Union and UCCF, through much prayer and God’s great provision, Festive was launched in 2007. Festive currently works across the UK supporting Christian students, chaplains and those in Further Education through prayer, advice, resources and training.  

Our Mission is 

to inspire and support Christians in Further Education Colleges and Sixth Forms to live for Jesus and to equip them as they share their faith through their words and actions. 

Our Vision is

to see an ongoing vibrant witness of Jesus in every FE College and Sixth Form in the UK. 


We collaborate with lots of different organisations as part of our work. We are national mission partners of Scripture Union.
