GYKTC - the good and bad of church

The event last night showed a number of clips and dramatisations about church and young people; here are some notes I made whilst watching these.

What do kids like about church:

- singing
- dancing
- worshipping
- sense of family
- being with friends
- sense of community

What they might not like:
- length of services
- not being respected for opinions
- boring games in Sunday school
- sitting in rows facing forwards

What makes it difficult to be a Christian?
- friends aren't Christians
- you can be bullied about it
- don't want to join in with stupid things other kids do but there's pressure
- people assume kids can't really choose to be Christians themselves
- Prayers aren't always answered
- it's seen as being uncool
