Challenging Reputation

Director of the Archbishop of York Trust, Robin Rolls,
contrasts the portrayal of young people in the media with that
of the Bible, and challenges us to re-think how we speak and
think about our youth; they are the solution, not the problem.

Local Link Up

So often we can limit our ministry by confining ourselves to
the Christian bubble. Andy Burns, Director of East to West,
draws on his experience of networking and partnering with
local leaders and organisations to outline how best to build
community through common unity.

The gaming phenomena

Time-wasting, violent and harmful, or key to young people’s
appetite for achievement? Jason Gardner dives into the world
of gaming and asks the crucial question: can computer games
save the world?
