TEEN SPIRIT blends a mix of popular chart music, together with well known classics and also the most contemporary Christian music.

TEEN SPIRIT explores young people’s relationship with God in an inspiring, uplifting and challenging way. It uses a new and refreshing way of presenting the beauty and power of the Christian faith.

TEEN SPIRIT gives young teenagers the chance to come together, work on a common goal, sing, have fun, pray together and put on a ‘Show’ for family, friends and the local community.

Teen SpiriT addresses issues such as:

  •  The desire to believe
  • God’s forgiveness being a springboard to a new beginning
  • Self-esteem based on God’s unconditional love
  • Finding the strength within and in God to overcome adversity
  • Being inspired to go and make a difference in the world

Teen SpiriT addresses these issues by;

  • Reflecting on the Song Choices and the lyrics
  • Group Prayer
  • Testimony and Witness
  •    Volunteering
  •    Having a Healthy Outlook
  •   Trust in God

TEEN SPIRIT is an initiative by members of the Kerry & Cloyne Dioceses who work with teens and/or youth choirs in their parishes and schools.
