A high proportion of youth work has always been sponsored and supported by faith organisations. Currently in Britain a majority of youth workers are employed by such organisations. However, it is not only those employed by faith-based agencies who are called upon to discuss and debate matters of a spiritual nature with young people. Questions such as ‘Where is God?’ and ‘Who made God?’ cannot be easily answered. Responses to them, whatever form they take, require faith. Effective work with young people will encourage an exploration of questions that can only be responded to with further questions. At times such as these youth work enters into the realm of faith.
