Youth Emmaus 2 is a fourteen-session interactive discipleship course for young people, designed to help 11- to 16-year-olds integrate their faith into life and to equip them as worshippers and disciples. It breaks down into two sections - Big Issues and Holy Spaces. Big Issues (Sessions 1-7) tackles Jesus' sermon on the mount, engaging with issues like poverty and injustice, forgiveness and reconciliation, dreams and passions. Holy Spaces (Sessions 8-14) explores creative ways of worshipping together - from protest to praise. Each session includes detailed leaders' notes, ice-breakers, theme-focused activities, ideas for worship and multimedia suggestions. It's suitable as a discipleship course, a post-confirmation resource, or a framework for a series of one-off events or a youth residential. It's ideal as a follow-on from Youth Emmaus or as stand-alone material to help young people grow in discipleship. The free CD-ROM includes handouts, resource sheets, PowerPoint presentations, cartoons and graphics, a youth Emmaus poster and a bookmark.
'I think it was absolutely brilliant. I think everyone should do it after they've been confirmed.' -- Fern Beale (age 13) 'It was really interesting and a fun way to learn about Jesus.' -- Lauren Whale (age 12)

'I am often asked to recommend resources for work with young people. Youth Emmaus 2 will be well up my list. I applaud its willingness to be bold and challenge youth leaders to push the boundaries outwards. This is an excellent resource that will spend more time off my shelf than on it.' -- David R Green, Youth Officer for St Albans Diocese
