Each month the YCW team and some of their friends discuss the current issue of the magazine and all that’s going on in the world of youth and children’s ministry.
Be Strong and Courageous: music as biblical truth
Deputy Editor Jess Lester spoke to children's musician and songwriter Michael J Tinker about his latest single Be Strong and Courageous, after it knocked Baby Shark from number two on the iTunes Charts. Plus, he explains why he thinks music is equally important for us adults as well as our children when it comes to learning Bible truths
How not to turn your kids off of God
Howard Worsley joined us to talk about his new book 'How to not totally put your children off God' and offers up advice for parents on how to get kids engaged and interested in faith at home
Building faith in children
We spoke to iconic children's work author Ronni Lamont about her new book Faith in Kids, and how we can nurture our children's spirituality and faith from home
Talking about the tough stuff
Recent events have seen us sit and have difficult conversations with our children and young people, most notably around the coronavirus pandemic. Funeral pastor, author and mum Annie Willmot shares her tips for talking about difficult topics with kids, and gives insight into how she's coped parenting in a pandemic.

Engaging with the 95% of children outside the Church
We spoke to Myles Macbean, director of Scripture Union, about their vision to engage with the children and young people on our doorsteps that still don't know the gospel, and how SU are continuing their work from lockdown. Plus, Myles reveals why he thinks we should embrace technology.
You can hear more from Myles in the latest YCW magazine, available online or via the YCW App on App Store and Google Play.
Using dance to reach young people
We spoke to Adesola Ayodeji, a dance evangelist from The Message Trust, about how we can use art to reach out to young people outside of our churches and how he has used dance as a means to engage online with children and youth while in lockdown.
