Detached Youthwork - Learning from the Street

Reflections on Youth work, Mission & Church by James Ballantyne

‘Here be Dragons’

In November 2012,  Richard, Lori and I and quite a few others from the Streetspace community, began pulling together some of the stories and thoughts of the community based Christian youth work that we were doing across Britain, some of it detached, others small group or centre based.  It has taken a little while to get it out there, but i hope that some of these stories and reflections help to inspire you in your encounters with God in the lives of young people in your communities.
