About Us

Inspiring, equipping and empowering Christian young people to be culture changers in their school communities through an active faith which draws others into relationship with Jesus. 

illuminateStroud is an initiative developed by The Door in partnership with local churches.

Together we want Christian young people to be empowered and inspired to live out the values of the fruit of the Spirit within their school and communities, while being confident to talk about the motivation behind their actions.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, Goodness & Self Control
