This new book could be an ideal suggestion for youth or children’s leaders who are not too sure of the Bible or the Christian faith. It’s designed as a pre-confirmation course to give children a grounding in the basics of the Christian faith, and offers questions and discussion at a variety of levels for parents and group leaders.

Three dates, three venues

Our Collective Ambassadors programme isn’t ordinary.
We are looking for game changers; young people who are enraged by poverty, enraged that 1 in 8 people go to bed hungry every night and wanting to do something about it.
