Guide on how to use the youth work edition of Journeys in the Spirit
The youth work edition of Journeys in the Spirit provides a range of ideas to use with 12 to 18 year olds in a Quaker context. Each issue explores a theme. It is produced in magazine format with all the activities in one A4 booklet.
The activities are written and presented to fit with the structure of a variety of youth events and activities. From link groups and weekends to week-long residential events to Sunday morning youth activities, each issue is packed with ideas for exploring a theme in a range of ways.
The material in Journeys in the Spirit is grouped according to different 'points', each with a different approach or way of exploring the theme. You can pick and choose to suit the group you are working with.
Journeys in the Spirit: youth edition comes out three times a year in February, June and October, on the second Monday of the month and is free by subscription. You can choose to receive a paper copy or be emailed a link to an online version.
To receive the current issue you need to subscribe.
