While our Esteem program was developed for school-based relationships and sex education, our new Fullness course has been designed to help church workers engage confidently and knowledgeably with young people on these tricky topics.
Did you know that HALF of all churches NEVER talk about relationships and sex with their young people, yet the topic is the 3rd highest priority for young people¹?
We believe that Christian youth workers hold a unique position in young people's lives - trusted and relied on to help them navigate the pressures of school, culture, the media, and so much more.
Working in partnership with the wider family, youth workers can be catalysts for a revolution in young people’s thinking on relationships and sex.
Of course, working with young people in a church context can create specific challenges - but it also provides brilliant opportunities.
We have three 1-day Fullness courses coming up - if you work with youth in a Christian context, we’d love you to attend one.

Young people have so many questions about these issues - our Fullness Course will help you start responding to these in practical, dynamic, and life-giving ways that will help young people bring their faith and their views on sex and relationships together in an authentic way.
Five of the London team spent three days at the National Christian Resources Exhibition at Sandown Racecourse last month promoting our Fullness Course.
All those attending were encouraged to prioritise what they felt was most important in a relationship, through a 3D version of our ‘Intimacy Pyramid’ game.
Catherine, our CEO, gave a lunchtime lecture on, ‘God, Sex and Culture’ citing that Jesus’ reputation was one of outflowing, unmitigated love and asking if people were Christian, whether that was how others would define them too?She challenged everyone to judge less and love more, empowering young people to make healthier choices by walking alongside them and listening to them, rather than telling them where they are wrong.
