Expand is a new year out programme aimed at Christian young people aged 18-25. Expand will start in September 2021 and run through to July 2022 and is run by a partnership of Dudley churches in association with the Love Dudley and Love Black Country Next Gen.
Expand is designed to be a year out programme that will provide you with the time and opportunity to explore God's call on your life. Taking a year out for Jesus is an adventure that will allow you to discover your calling and make a real different in people lives.

Expand is a part time year out programme (3 days a week), with three elements:
This will be moulded around each church and individual, so that as well as giving you the opportunity to love your church family, it will also continue your growth and development, as well as allowing you to explore your passions and, perhaps, discern more of God's call on your life.
As the programme is part-time, it can can be combined with employment or education; however, if you would like to do this full time we can also arrange that.
