Free is our magazine especially designed for teenagers. Edited by Chris Nicolson, an experienced journalist and mother of three, it features articles on the many issues facing young people, together with the questions that are often asked about how the Bible relates to the world we live in. It contains real life stories, news on youth events throughout the Church and beyond, and regular columns to challenge you and make you think. Click here for more information about Free.
