Tearfund’s Matt Valler asks how we encourage young people to take justice seriously, not just as a concept but as a lifestyle and provides a round up of some the best resources on the topic.

Young People and Worhip: Going Deeper

In the second part of his series on youth worship, Cliff College’s Steve Emery-Wright looks at how we create worship experiences and opportunities which are inclusive of all young people, and reignites the debate around youth church. Does it create a ghetto, or is it the only was to keep young people in The Body of Christ?

It’s a well-worn cliché to say that young people are passionate about justice – but what does that really mean? Matt Valler believes that while campaigns, lifestyle choices and fundraising events are of some value, we’ll never truly see the world change until justice becomes our way of life.
