Developing A Youth Band

Many youth groups are packed with musical talent, but not all of it
has been properly unearthed or encouraged. Worship leader and
songwriter Tim Hughes presents a very practical guide to envisioning
and equipping a youth worship band.

Women of Faith

Inter-faith specialist Lois Gallagher provides an informed guide to understanding the culture and
the needs of young Muslim women, and suggests practical ways in which youth workers can begin to journey alongside them, and reach them with the love of Christ.

Defenders of the Faith

In a culture of rampant secularism, articulate atheism and increasing multiculturalism, Amy Orr-Ewing considers the empowering nature of apologetics to shape of adolescent faith and to help young people respond with confidence to the challenges levelled at Christianity.
