Years 6-10 ‘Growing in our Faith’
Week 1: 'Water of Life' - Theophany
Week 2: 'Family of Faith' - 'I am the vine and you are the branches’
Week 3: 'God's Presence in our lives' - Do we have proof of His
existence? Who is God?

‘Years 11-15 and 16-24 ‘Contemporary Issues, Christian Solutions’
Week 1: Virtual/Online Reality and Real Life - Focus on benefits and problems of social media, online image and comparisons with the image and likeness of God. What image do we want to portray?
