Can We Redeem Halloween? - with Craig Roberts and Kristen Young

How should Christians respond to customs, traditions, and stories that have associations with false religions, demonic powers, and evil? Could a church building be covered in cobwebs and used as an invitation to come inside?

Would you run a Halloween event for the kids of your church so they don’t feel like they are missing out? Or would you run something as an outreach to connect to the neighborhood?

Is it about the occult and to be avoided at all costs and denounced, or is it about kids in funny outfits and junk food?


To talk Halloween, kids and churches our guests are: Craig Roberts, CEO of Sydney’s Anglican Youthworks and former minister of Neutral Bay Anglican Church. Kristen Young, Director of student and community care at Sydney Missionary and Bible College.

Length: 23mins
