XL culture

At XL, we’re huge on giving young people opportunities to grow and expand their world view and encounter God in different ways. To help accomplish this, we arrange trips over the year, both in the UK and abroad. We partner with the awesome !Audacious conference, Fire Academy, and run our own annual weekend away. We also partner with Churches in Slovakia and India and have run mission trips to both nations.
