In partnership with our friends at OneHope, UCB offers a wide range of free resources that help young people engage with the Gospel.

The resources below are all provided for free (although postage and packaging will apply).

What is the Book of Hope?

The Book of Hope is a Scripture book designed to engage and speak to the heartfelt needs of children and youth within various cultures, clearly showing them God's redemptive plan through Christ's life, death and resurrection. In the UK, there are several editions aimed at various age groups so that each child or young person can comprehend and engage with the message. We're delighted that over 3.7m Books of Hope have been distributed in the UK since 2007.

UCB distributes the Book of Hope in the UK and Europe. For orders to other countries please see OneHope's ministry request form.

What about 'digital'?

We live in a digital age where the average UK teenager has six digital devices! Bearing this in mind, we know it is vital to share the gospel on the platforms used by young people. OneHope and UCB offer several new digital resources that aim to do just that - engage the next generation with God's Word online. Check out KnowMyStory for a great example.
