Ben Woodman & Jason Ballard, the Canadian creators and presenters of the Alpha faith formation film series, met with students at a special gathering at Coláiste Chríost Rí this week. Youth Alpha has been running at the school and students who are hoping to experience next year also attended the event.

Ben & Jason explained how and why the film series was made and how this new resource is helping thousands of young people across the globe explore Christianity for themselves.  After watching an episode from the series, students had the opportunity to text their questions to the creators. They then listened to the presenters as they gave their personal faith testimonies.

Finally, three students were interviewed about their experience of Youth Alpha with one student saying, “It has been so great getting the chance to discuss and explore our beliefs with others and it is very reassuring to know that there are other young people just as interested in this stuff as you”.
