Event Packs

We know that often the hardest part of running any youth event is working out how it should be structured, what games could be played, what questions to ask, what questions to avoid. Trying to do this when your young people are of two different faiths can be even more daunting! We’ve prepared a couple of event ideas, based on tried-and-tested events, to help you run successful dialogue events!

Exchange Event Program
This pack will help you lead an exchange event, where you bring 2 different groups of young people from 2 faith communities together. This pack is designed with a group of Muslims and Christians in mind, but could easily be adapted to suit other faith(s).

What makes you ‘you’?
This event was written and run for Muslim and Christian teenagers aged 12-16. It could easily be used with little adaptation for young people of other faith(s) and/or none. The session outline provided serves as a guide for exploring the idea of identity and character. This resource was written for MYX, and has been adapted for The Feast.

Fasting and Feasting – NEW!
This pack serves as a guide for Christian/Muslim a interfaith youth event which explores what fasting means in each faith. The event is short, but could be extended, and is written to occur during the Ramadan period.

Girls’ Event: Mini Weekend Residential – NEW!
This event was written and run for Muslim and Christian girls aged 12-16. It could be used with little adaptation for girls (or boys!) of other faiths and/or none. This event runs for 23 hours, including a film, sleepover and trip to an outdoors centre. You could easily take away the sleepover and outdoor activities and do a day event, watching the film and then doing the activities which follow.

Girls’ Event: Chick Flick and Chat
This event was written and run for Muslim and Christian girls aged 12-16. It could be easily used with little adaptation for girls of other faiths and/or none. The film (The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants) is 119 minutes long, so takes up almost half of the event time. Before the film there are games to play to get to know each other, and after the film a chance to discuss the themes and faith. 

Girls’ Event: Faith and Image
This event was written and run for Muslim and Christian teenage girls aged 12-16. It could easily be used with little adaptation for girls of other faith(s) and/or none.

Boys’ Event: What makes a man?
This event was written and run for Muslim and Christian teenage boys aged 12-16. It could easily be used with little adaptation for boys of other faith(s) and/or none. The session outline provided serves as a guide for discovering what makes us unique as  men, what traits we admire in other men and seek to emulate and the ways in which our faith can help us develop a positive ‘male’ identity. This resource was written for MYX, and has been adapted for The Feast.
