Excellent. Easy to use and great layout.
Excellent preparatory material, encouraging emotional, spiritual and legal awareness. Clear session notes, very easy to follow.
Minimum of two leaders, preferably male and female, with active Christian lives. Lay or clergy.
Good, lively handouts which encourage interaction.
CD very accessible.
Set up course with appropriate checks etc, but then each session easy to use. Preparation of materials, films, and interactive ideas all helpfully listed.
No website but useful links included in material.
Suggestions for films, images, etc and perhaps links, may need more contemporary replacements.
Brilliant. Most of the material is group-based, with sensitive allowance for personal space.
Good mix of styles, should suit all, great pace.
The course assumes a background of Christian understanding (e.g. from Youth Emmaus) and explores its application.
Implicit in all the material – this is growing together from a Christian standpoint. Action points for working on between sessions.
Sessions firmly based on biblical material, applied in one way or another.
Theme-based to engage with the issues, but carefully chosen and pertinent.
Good application at all points.
Anglican-based but easily adaptable as this is only obvious at a few points (e.g. Communion).
Material based on issues from Sermon on the Mount, and applied to situations which would be familiar to most young people. Holy Space encourages and enlarges the concept of worship, both personally and corporately.
Not prescriptive but imaginatively creative in provoking engagement.
Examples from the sacrificial lives of ground-breaking Christians should inspire, and all material applied imaginatively.
All issues grounded in daily reality.
Mostly from angle of how to treat all people in a distinctively Christian and honouring way.
Good mix of personal and corporate, e.g. identity issues and environmental challenges.
