Out of the Question is a series of animations to equip young people to give a reason for the hope they have. Following the characters, Chris, Holly Beth and Sam through the ups and downs of discussing the Christian faith with their friends, young people will learn the value of a conversational, question-based approach that is both robust but also positive.
We don’t want anyone to miss out, so we’ve made Out of the Question 100% free to download for everyone. But the cost of production is only possible because of donations from people like you.
Animation takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. It’s great that we have completed the first series and made it available for you to start using, however funding is still needed to fully cover all the animation costs of the project. Any donation is much appreciated and gratefully received.

“Out of the Question was fantastic for our boys’ home Bible study group. It boosted their confidence talking to friends at school about being a Christian.”
Nate Morgan LockeAssociate Evangelist at Christianity Explored Ministries
‘Helping Christian young people to talk to their mates about Jesus should be one of the core activities of the church. In doing so helping them give a reason for the hope that they have is critical. Out of the Question is a fun, relevant and engaging resource to help them do just that.’
Phil KnoxHead of Mission to Young Adults, Evangelical Alliance
Out of the Question is a great resource to help young people grapple with the big questions of apologetics and faith. It’s well reasoned, presented in a fun way, and guaranteed to get the discussion going within your group. I whole-heartedly recommend it to you!

“Engaging, smart and well worth a look”
James CaryTV and Radio Comedy writer
“Out of the Question looks to creatively bridge the cultural gap between Church and world, offering an accessible way for young people to engage with some of the intellectual and social barriers to Christian faith. It’s Disenchantment/Almost Naked Animals meets scholarly apologetics mash-up, and the videos don’t stand alone. The clean interface with leader’s guide/discussion questions, and opportunity for role play makes this a seriously interesting project for any church to consider.”
Andy du FeuVice-Principal (Academic), Moorlands College
“Out of the Question is an innovative resource to that aims to give younger Christians real confidence in the gospel’s goodness and truth. Not only will this contribute to boosting many Christians’ confidence that their trust in Jesus is well-placed, I am also sure that it will inspire many to share this hope with others.”
Peter DrayUCCF Head of Creative Evangelism
“Many people are reflecting on the meaning and purpose of their lives, they are trying to explain and makes sense of the good and bad bits of it all. Too many contributions into this area are superficial or overly intellectual. Yet the original desire to find answers is still there. Comedy is a brilliant way to open up the conversation naturally and video animations are loved all over the globe. These short videos are as funny as they are thoughtful. I highly recommend them for their ability to get us all thinking and talking about the big questions of life and faith.”
Tom PriceOCCA Senior Tutor & RZIM Apologist
"It's a delight for me to recommend 'Out of the Question', this is a new creative innovate video series on apologetics for young people, teenagers, and young adults. To help them engage their peers in conversation with creativity with humour and to encourage and inspire them with that."
