What is Shine?

“Shine is a self-esteem course with an inspirational, practical and experiential approach to learning. Its core aim is for each girl and woman to develop an understanding of her own personal worth, strength and purpose and realise the potential within her to fulfil her desires.”



Shine was created and developed by Hillsong Church, Sydney, Australia and is currently being used in more than 300 diverse organisations across many parts of the world. We launched Shine in Cambridge in January 2010. 


Programme Objectives
Shine equips girls and women to…
• Identify themselves as valuable with much to contribute
• Build confidence, self-esteem and self-worth
• Develop respect and boundaries in relationships (ShineWOMEN)
• Develop decision making and problem solving skills (ShineGIRL)
• Understand they are able to have a positive influence in their world
• Identify personal desires and strengths to motivate them to set and achieve personal goals

Foundational Concepts...

Shine is based on 3 foundational concepts; Worth, Strength and Purpose…

1. Worth
I have Worth! 'Body and soul, I am marvellously made'
The focus for these sessions is for each participant to understand for themselves that they are valuable. Their uniqueness is something to celebrate and they have been wonderfully made.

2. Strength
I have Strength! 'Choose life'
These sessions explore the power of choice and the power that decisions have on shaping a person’s future. This is addressed through practical sessions about feelings, willpower, convictions, boundaries and respect.

3. Purpose
I have Purpose! 'I have a hope and a future'
Purpose is examined through exploring hopes, dreams and desires. Goal setting, discussions on potential and talents and practical activities are used to equip and build confidence to live out a purpose-filled adventurous life.
