“I thought there were some questions that we simply could not answer but I learnt today there we actually can”

– a teenager reflecting on REBOOT2013

“Lovely people that were funny, smart and they REALLY wanted our questions”

“In the afternoon my brain stopped so I sat and ate haribos”

“I txt loads of questions and one of mine was answered!!!”

“It was my first apologetics and I didn’t even know what it meant. It sounded really dull but it was brilliant”

Once a year, REBOOT meets in the centre of London to explore questions such as ‘How can we know God exists?’, ‘Why does God allow suffering?’ and ‘Hasn’t science disproved God?’. REBOOT provides a place for young people from 12-18 years old, with or without any faith or church background, to raise their objections and investigate different perspectives.

Through its annual conference, online resources, and speaking invitations, REBOOT aims to equip young people to understand and be able to answer some of these big questions for themselves.
Our team from the Zacharias Trust and the OCCA [the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics] want you to have confidence in what you believe, and the chance to be honest about your doubts. Since its launch in 2013, REBOOT has welcomed over 1000 young people, and this year we are excited to see more of you than ever!

Here’s what some people are saying about REBOOT…


Why does God allow suffering?

Every perspective or world view has to grapple with the question “why suffering?” The Christian view says that the world was created good, and suffering is an outrage. Listen as Amy Orr-Ewing talks about how different faiths deal with this question.

Why did Jesus die?

When people say, “Jesus died for you” what does that actually mean? And what kind of God would send his son to die anyway? Vince Vitale talks about why Jesus’ death is central to the Christian faith and why it’s the most extravagant expression of God’s love for humanity.

God’s not dead

As someone who teaches philosophy at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford, Vince Vitale is well placed to know what the top scholarship says about God. Vince shows how in the fields of philosophy and sociology, God is very much alive.

REBOOT Launches!

We launched our first ever Youth Apologetics Day in September 2013. Here are some highlights from the day. Don’t miss REBOOT 2014 on 27th September.

Why trust the Bible?

Lots of people think the Bible has been changed, corrupted, or is a conspiracy and that it cannot be trusted. Amy Orr-Ewing explores how we can have confidence in the reliability of the Bible we read today.
