Session outline: Young People as Disciples
What does it mean for young people to be Christian disciples who are growing in faith? How can they be supported well at church, school and college, in a society where Christian faith is often misunderstood or ignored? And how can they contribute fully to their communities as Christians? This session is for both young people and any who are keen to engage with these questions.
