Difference for young people

New resouces for secondary schools and church youth groups

Difference for young people is launching in 2024 with resources for secondary schools and church youth groups. 

We live in world which is messy, hurting and divided.  For young people growing up and working out who they are, it can be hard to know how to handle conflict, differences, fear of saying the wrong thing, and the ups and downs of friendships. Alongside this, our culture and communities are often broken into smaller pieces. Young people in our churches are navigating this complex and divided world while discovering what it means to follow Jesus. 

With reconciliation at the heart of the Christian story, young people need the opportunity and support to build good relationships with themselves, their peers, and the world around them.

Equipping young people to navigate the complexities of life

Through Difference, young people will develop formational habits to encounter others well and navigate difficult situations. These habits are based in scripture, rooted in the life of Christ and distilled by the wisdom of expert peacemakers. They are: Be Curious, Be Present, and Reimagine. Over a series of sessions, young people will explore the important life skills of learning how to listen to each other, disagree well and work together creatively to find solutions. It will help them to become more confident and better equipped to navigate the complexities of  life.  

Difference in secondary schools’ resources, developed in collaboration with the Church of England Education Office, will be available from February 2024. Church youth group resources will be launched in summer 2024. This autumn, 30 secondary schools and youth groups piloted and contributed to the design and content of the resources.
