The Experiments: Youth work resources exploring hands-on spirituality


The Experiments, our first homegrown youth work resource enabling young people to explore hands-on spirituality, is now available!

Created in partnership with StreetSpace and Frontier Youth Trust, The Experiments is a pair of youth work resources to explore hands-on spirituality with young people over a series of 10 sessions. Each session looks at one of the beatitudes, stripped of religious language and presented as five practical experiments that tap into the value and spirituality beneath it.

Leaders Guide


The Experiments Leaders Guide is available as a free pdf download so you can try it out for yourself, chop, change and adapt it to your context.

The Cards

experimentsThe Experiments is also presented as a deck of 10 cards, each with a different Beatitude which participants collect throughout the programme. Young people can keep these cards as a reminder and provocation for each experiment, building a rhythm of spiritual practices and reflections.

These are available to order on the Frontier Youth Trust website.
