Origins Prayer Course

A seven-week small group course for young people to explore and learn about prayer.

Start running Origins with young people.

Who is Origins for?

Origins is for 11-18 year olds and is designed for young people from all backgrounds. The desire is that anyone at any place with God can build community whilst learning how to have a relationship with Jesus.

How does it work?

Each session should take an hour and a half but can be changed to suit your group. The length of the prayer times do increase as the weeks go on. This course is designed for youth groups of all sizes, but we suggest splitting into smaller groups for discussions.

How much is Origins, and where can I get it?

It costs £5 to purchase our Leader’s Manual, containing everything you need to run Origins.
