We’ve created the Youth Leader’s guide to be a launching pad for youth group discussions. Each of the sessions can be used as part of the full Alongsiders series or as a standalone resource.

How to use the study guide

This Alongsiders Youth Resource has been designed as a single 1.5-2 hour youth group session. It is based around four interactive prayer stations that correlate to the four key themes of the Alongsiders series – prayer, peace, love and partnership.

Each prayer station also has a corresponding extension activity that can be done by youth individually throughout May and beyond.

Through the prayer stations and the extension activities, youth will be encouraged to lift their eyes to what God is doing both globally and locally.

Key themes

You can print the PDFs below for each of the prayer stations. If this is an issue for your group due to access or cost, please let us know. Baptist Mission Australia can print all the elements and mail them to you.
