Topics include ‘Who is God?’, ‘Why we need a Saviour’, ‘The Sacraments’ and ‘Serving God/Serving others’.Each session offers a blend of teaching, games, worship and prayer activities and discussion questions.The sessions are aimed to last between forty and ninety minutes at the discretion of the facilitator and the resource offers the flexibility for sessions to be tailored to the needs of the particular context.
As well as a well-designed Leader’s Manual, an interactive Participant’s Guide has been developed to complement the course. The resource is available directly from the CIYD office or from – www.thebookwell.co.uk
