What do you do with your youth work for halloween?

This year Halloween is on a Friday, this is when we normally run the Boys’ and Girls’ Brigades in our church, but as it is half-term we normally have the week off.  In one of the teams we had a discussion as to whether we should be providing  activites on the evening of halloween.  It was something I hadn’t really thought through before.

As Christians are we really providing good options or are we just making options for Christian young people that keeps them safe, and in one sense is just a little boring in comparison with what every other teenager seems to be doing?  Children’s events seem to focus on light parties and seem like a great alternative, but I’ve not really seen any great alternatives for youth work.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
