Front Cover
Church House Publishing, 25. apr 2006 - 144 pages
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.
