How Does It Work?

SCHOOL GROUP?

Running SHINE is actually really easy. Register your details, then choose and download the videos appropriate to your group. Allow students to watch the videos and be thinking about what you will do for your SHINE event on week 3. Just follow these simple steps:

Week 1

Watch video 1, pray together and start thinking about what you will do in week 3.

Week 2

Watch video 2, continue praying and plan week 3. Hand out roles and responsibilities to members of your group to empower them to SHINE.

Week 3

Run the event that you have been planning. Ideally this will be an opportunity for young people to explore the Bible and find out more about Jesus. To help with this, there will be a short video you can show as part of your event.

CHURCH YOUTH GROUP?

This year we are delighted to open SHINE up to churches. Simply, register your details, then choose and download the videos appropriate to your group. Each video should create good conversations and allow for group discussions. Also don’t forget to plan for your SHINE event on week 3. Just follow these simple steps:

Week 1

Watch video 1, have group discussions and pray together. Also start thinking about what you will do in week 3.

Week 2

Watch video 2, continue praying and chatting through the content, while still planning week 3. Encourage your young people to invite friends along to the SHINE event on week 3.

Week 3

Run the event that you have been planning. Ideally this will be an opportunity for young people to explore the Bible and find out more about Jesus. To help with this, there will be a short video you can show as part of your event.

Dates:

Week 1 – 8th – 12th Nov

Week 2 – 15th – 19th Nov

Week 3 – 22nd – 26th Nov

We love the idea of many groups across the UK and Ireland running SHINE at the same time, encouraging one another and sharing stories of what is happening. However, we understand that these dates may not suit everyone and so please do not feel restricted by them. Simply pick dates that work for you and your group.

SHINE normally runs during 3 weeks in November. However, given the current circumstances we simply encourage you to use these resources whenever works best for you.
