Youth leaders across Connor Diocese continue to be innovative in order to connect with young people through the pandemic.
They have found one way to enthuse an online gathering is the use of Escape Rooms. These provide a task for a small group, either racing against each other in breakout rooms or trying to achieve the quickest time.
Youth groups from across Connor have used a variety of these resources to connect with young people, including the set of Escape Rooms from Church Youth Ministry and an Escape Room from Macmillan.
Christina Baillie, Diocesan Youth Officer, has used these with a number of youth groups. “Escape Rooms have been a great activity for some fun and connection online,” Christina said.
“I have been able to host these for youth groups and it’s been a great success. Many of our young people – and leaders (!) – get very competitive, and it’s something quite different to other online activities.
“It is key that we continue to connect with and encourage the young people in our parishes. We want them to know that the Church cares for them and wants to maintain contact, this is one way we can do that.”
If you would like Christina to host an Escape Room online with your youth group, please contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
