If you need a fresh, relevant and fun resource that introduces young people to the Christian faith then look no further. Live Life is the latest resource from Dan Jones and Tony Cook, youth advisers for the dioceses of Bristol and Bath & Wells.
Bringing together a combined 40 years of youth work experience, Live Life is ideal as a preparation course for confirmation. Core themes follow a flexible structure with practical guidance for all involved in church youth work, from enthusiastic volunteers to experienced youth workers and church leaders.
Dan and Tony say: “Live Life creates a space for young people to enjoy, explore, question and deepen their understanding of God, knowing that they do not need to be confirmed if they feel the time is not right for them. Our prayer is that through this resource young people discover Jesus Christ for themselves and journey onwards as disciples, living life in all its fullness.”
Each of the ten creative sessions is packed with short films, discussion starters and Bible studies to encourage young people to reflect on situations, stories and scripture that relates to them and their context. The introductory session explores the topic of faith and confirmation and is followed by six core sessions that prepare young people for confirmation. Three extra sessions have been included to continue the momentum of built relationships as well as to challenge the young people after this significant moment in their Christian journey.
