Welcome to our page of resources for use with children during the shutdown.
On this page you will find a few general resources to help your children engage with God and grow in their faith along with some specific weekly resources to accompany our Sunday services. Please do send pictures of any crafts you complete to firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d love to encourage the whole church with them!
All Stars Kids Club has a range of Christian kids music videos, Bible teaching cartoons and craft ideas. There is also a live Sunday afternoon show, which is quite fun. You can sign up for a free account to get access.
Torchlighters has some great resource packs and fun activities based on their ‘Heroes of the Faith’ videos retelling the story of some of the great missionaries and Christians (which themselves are available on Amazon Prime or, in some cases, on Youtube).
Sunday 26th April
As we consider this week the Disciples’ meeting Jesus on the road to Emmaus this Sunday I am attaching some lovely things for you to do together as a family that explores this bible message..crafts, games, stories and a VIDEO that tells the story very well.
Please adapt this all to suit you and maybe learn the memory verse and do a heart picture (attached) to hang up or share with someone in your family…..“When Jesus talked with us along the road… didn’t it warm our hearts?” Luke 24:32
Sunday 19th April
Think about which of your friends you might pray for at this time when we are all isolated. Maybe use your fingers to represent each friend that you want to pray for….one for each friend. ✋🙏✋ You could draw a face on each finger.
Think about how we might pray for things God blesses us for even in difficult situations. The Allsorts leaders are praying for you all.
