Youth Alpha Pilot
Up to 80 young people are about to take part in the Youth Alpha Pilot Programme, throughout Down & Connor. Various parishes and schools, throughout the diocese, are going to launch the Youth Alpha Pilot with some of their young people, at the beginning of November. There will be three sessions held before Christmas and three sessions running after Christmas. Following this, there will be a Youth Alpha residential at the start of February and all 80 young people and their group leaders will be invited to spend the weekend in Corrymeela. Youth Alpha is a very exciting programme that is designed to engage young people in their faith and it allows them to explore life’s biggest questions. The 12 interactive sessions give young people a chance to interact, build relationships, explore religion and develop holistically in their faith. Youth Alpha has four main ingredients; food, talk conversation and fun. There was a training session on Monday 20th October, at Living Youth, for all the leaders who are about to embark on the Youth Alpha journey with the young people in their schools and parish. The Youth Alpha launch is a new and exciting experience for everyone involved. Youth Alpha will be launched throughout schools and parishes, in our diocese, next year so continue to follow our website and Facebook page for updates.
