How to… help children & young people think through faith

As a parent or church volunteer, you may be supporting a lunchtime Scripture Union group. In this context, where children and young people choose to get together to explore their faith, you can draw on a variety of resources which would be less relevant in the classroom.

  • Youth Alpha has some great resources. Look at their film series: twelve episodes filmed in Vancouver, London, Paris and Jerusalem: http://www.alphayouthfilmseries.com/#inviteageneration
  • For good online apologetics for young people try REBOOT http://www.reboot.org.uk/ Aimed at Mid/late teens & students, it has online video clips on topics like “Why Does God Allow Suffering?” and “How can I talk to my friends about my faith?”, an online magazine (Fresh – Thoughts) with links to lots of stories/interviews etc about art, music, fashion, leadership etc. Interesting point: What do Daniel, Queen Esther, Mary, Timothy, Jeremiah and you have in common? They are all teenagers!
  • S4-6 pupils might also like some of the Ethos UK videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJskmtC8sYCCSsS7gtSBbog Some are way better than others, but at their best they deal with edgy questions that Christian pupils are bound to be asking
  • For ages 7-11, try some of Youth for Christ’s materials. See http://www.bigministries.co.uk/resources/category/books
