Mission-Shaped Youth

Rethinking Young People and the Church

by Tim Sudworth


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Church House Publishing (CHP) part of Hymns Ancient & Modern
In the current climate of Mission Shaped Church this book is an inevitable follow on and necessary addition to that initiative. We can always state that to work with youth and encourage them in their part in the life of the church is vital. This brief yet packed book gives sound advice through case studies, examples, practical exercises and common sense. The book starts with actual stories of young people and their sometimes struggle to make adults understand their special needs. There are examples of working in schools, in clubs, in neighbourhoods, of liturgies which express the needs and desires of youngsters, remembering that young people progress through their understanding of belief and church and have sound ideas of how they wish to worship and express their faith. If you need to discover new ways of youth ministry then this is your book.
