What is n:spire?
The 13-18s age group in GB is known as n:spire.
n:spire for 13 to 18s empowers teenagers to engage with challenges which will help them learn new skills and find opportunities to serve, whilst discovering God’s relevance to every aspect of their life.
These young people enjoy deeper relationships with both boys and girls. They may be making key decisions about their future – options, work, and university – and can experience quite a lot of pressure from school, parents or even from themselves. They need challenge and adventure and want to take responsibility for things themselves.
Each n:spire challenge is open to different interpretations, allowing the young people to make decisions about content, pace and engagement. Throughout, the activities will encourage them to discover what their faith means in their daily living, leisure time, decision-making, skill development and in their engagement of the world they live in.
Young people can earn badges by completing individual topics. We have over 20 topics within this programme; each topic reflecting an aspect of the young peoples’ lives. Within each topic, there are 5 different challenge options, meaning there are over 100 different options to explore. Badges include Faith, Future, and Healthy Lifestyle.
