Summary/Abstract: The article explores the challenges faced by the church regarding alternative worship services, especially those for the youth and the young adults. The main questions of the article are: what kind of liturgy would be suitable for the young people who are living in this post-modern, digital world? How could the gospel be communicated in a form that is attractive to those who perceive the world in a very specifi c way? Does the church have anything to say to those who love to live in a virtual, internet-led world? Th e author is confi dent about the role of the Unitarian church in reaching the young generation, and off ers some ideas which could lead to building a liturgy meaningful in the 21st century. He gives examples from the Transylvanian youth services and American Unitarian Universalist services, and concludes that youth services are likely the pioneers of any future liturgical renewals of the church.
