Dreaming the Impossible is a youth movement for young people aged 12-18 from churches and youth organisations everywhere. It is open to all streams, networks and denominations and is run by Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland.

We’re passionate about seeing young people meet Jesus and fearlessly follow Him, believing that nothing is impossible with God.

Our gatherings are unashamedly all about Jesus but we try and make everything accessible for those with no or little experience of church.

DTI is about inspiring and equipping young people to love God, love others and change the world. Our heart is that young people would encounter God at DTI and leave our gatherings knowing his love for them in a deeper way, and be ready to live out their faith back home being part of a local church.

Our programme is always rammed, but the thing we’re most excited about is seeing what God wants to do over our 5 days together. Every morning and evening we come together as family to worship Jesus, hear some great teaching from the Bible and spend loads of time learning how to pray for each other and hanging out in God’s presence.

Outside of the main meetings there’s load of time for the young people to hang out with their friends and make some new ones. They can choose to go along to seminars which cover lots of different topics as well as explore cafes, sports, music, films and other fun activities that go on late into the evening!

"Now to him who is able  to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
Ephesians 3.20-21
