Welcome to our Catholic youth work Resources archive!

This section is primarily for parish youth workers and those involved in organising groups of young people. You may be a youth worker or leader, or perhaps just a regular young person who wants to start something in their school or parish. Whatever your situation, this Catholic youth work Resources archive is full of ideas for activities, games, praying etc. Use our filter tool below if you’re looking for something in particular. Please bear in mind that many of our resources can be used outside of the designated age range or theme, these are simply here to give you a rough guide!

Bold Billboards

A creative activity where young people design a billboard expressing their positive traits and attributes in a non-threatening manner.


Capture the Flag

A large group team game where opposing teams must capture the opponent’s flag.


Create a Country

Who can create the best country and how’d you go about it?


Dinner Mishmash

All members of the group are given £2 to buy food for a communal meal.


Easter Jars

When we finished we stuck a prayer on the jar which we can say before we take out a piece of paper.


Faith Line

A helpful way to begin a conversation about faith and belief in God with secondary school young people.


Garbage Art

The group must recycle bits of rubbish to create a piece of art.


Graffiti Prayer Wall

The Graffiti Wall is brilliant for helping those with a passion for art express themselves to God in a way that is most meaningful to them.


Laser Quest

Laser Quest is a fun team-building activity for a youth group to spend a session doing. High energy and lots of fun, we walk you through how to arrange it.


Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is one of the oldest forms of prayer and helps us to engage with scripture.


Letters for Conversation

A discussion aid that helps a small group to think deeper about a question and share their thoughts. Letters are placed upon the ground and are used as an aid to get the young people to think deeper about their answer to whatever question you are going to ask.


Liturgical Decorations Arts and Crafts

This is a great way to get the young people to enter into the liturgical season and contribute to either the Church or their families’ celebration of the period.
