Young people are always asking questions. exploRE is about providing them with space to find some answers for themselves.

exploRE is a 12-week programme of study which has been devised for use with students aged 11 to 14 in RE lessons. Its easy-to-use lesson plans make it an ideal resource for teachers, youth workers and church workers seeking to engage with their local school. The resource has been created by experienced teaching professionals, its approach reflecting guidelines outlined in the non-statutory programme of study for RE in England (2007) and the principles found in Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence (2006).

Each lesson unpacks key areas of Christian beliefs and practices, using an exciting array of activities: games, drama, art, discussion and interactive illustrations. The pack also includes a DVD that incorporates vox pops, testimonies and short films. exploRE gives students the opportunity to investigate the Christian faith in a way that is fresh, engaging and relevant to their everyday lives.
