Caris is a new magazine for girls aged 11-16. It is published by the Church Times in conjunction with a number of different youth organisations.
Free sample issues are being given away – there is a shortened sample copy available to download on the site or you can order a free copy. The launch issue, due out in August will be the full 48 pages and will also be free if I understand things correctly. If you are a girl aged 11-16 or a youth leader or you know young people who might enjoy it why not sign up to get some free copies.
Yesterday the Independent published an article about it: No snogging, no celebrity gossip: church launches magazine for teenage girls. I read in that article that the Archbishop of Canterbury has given some funding to it, so he must think it is a good idea. As a retired youthworker I also think it is a good idea, and I hope it does well.
Edit: The magazine was originally to have been called ‘Grace’, but the name was changed pre-launch for legal reasons.
