Rooted is not a programme, it’s not something that you ‘do’ for ten weeks with a group of young people.
Rooted is a way of being, a way of thinking about long-term relational ministry with young people. Rooted works in any context, with any level of faith development and with any level of ability.
The Rooted model places the young person at the centre, and seeks to provide space for that young person to grow, flourish and be nurtured in a safe, committed and compassionate Christian community.
The material contained within this resource gives you ideas for helping young people to explore the difference Jesus can make to their identity, purpose and self-worth.
The Rooted material in this resource covers nine key themes:
● Exploring identity
● Sharing stories
● Understanding emotions
● Exploring self-worth
● Friendship and choices
● Social media and influences
● Healthy eating and mental well-being
● Trying new skills
● Dreams and aspirations
If you decide to start a ‘Rooted’ group in your area, we’d love to hear from you – so please do get in touch with your success stories, questions or feedback.
