Resources

Test of Faith in partnership with Youth For Christ have developed resources for 11-14 and 14-18 year olds that are designed to equip youth workers - not with lots of answers to apologetic questions, but rather with an appreciation of the debate, the range of questions being asked, and the way in which answers can be explored. These youth sessions make use of the documentary Test of FAITH - a contemporary presentation of the issues.

Topics: science & faith, creation, the environment and identity. Each session creates space for young people to explore the issues, express their opinions as well as learn about how the Bible relates to the issues. As well as creating more structured discussion and teaching times, the sessions also include activities that will help you learn through play.
