A very different Christmas
There are some amazing new and creative suggestions for how we can do Christmas this year. I know that churches and church leaders will find a way but whatever we do it will be 'a very different Christmas' this year.
Before we dive into finding new and creative ways to celebrate it is alright to take a moment and grieve the traditions we cannot have this year.
This resource is to help families have those conversations with their children about how Christmas will look different this year.
Prayer for mothers
Prayer for strong women
These resources are designed to help us pray for the strong women in our lives whether you are using them for Mothering Sunday (14th March) or International Women's Day (8th March).
Mothering Sunday is a difficult time for those who have lost their mother, lost children or have unfulfilled dreams of motherhood. We've tried to create a resource that can be used to celebrate all those who love and care for others in our churches.
Back to school - discussion starter
These resources are designed to help prepare children to return to school and unpack the wide range of emotions they are likely to feel in the first days and weeks back.
The Emotions Cards are designed as an A5 PDF which can be printed two cards to a page.
Serving at Church
With churches in the UK returning to online meetings this month, what examples of hospitality and service will we miss seeing each week while we can't meet in Church buildings?
How can we recreate these examples of service for our children each week?
This resource helps families think about the roles we are missing on a Sunday and how we could recreate them by Serving Church in our own Homes.
Black History Month
October is Black History Month!
Here are some sharable resources exploring the stories of some amazing Christians who served God and helped others whilst battling racism and prejudice. Also included is a resource looking at some of the Black lives in the Bible.
Below you can find our resource on Justice which was first shared earlier in the year
What is Justice?
Many of us are struggling to find the right words to respond to the global outpouring of pain and anger following the death of George Floyd. These are big topics to unpack and discuss with adults let alone children.
However, our God is a God of Justice and we are called to "walk justly" in this world.
Here is a resource exploring what the Bible says about Justice which I hope can be a helpful starting point for you.
The following links are to blog posts exploring how we speak to our children about race from a Christian perspective - and include useful links to other resources.

Riding the Second Wave - Lessons from Joseph
Romans 12 v 12 says: Be joyful because you have hope. Be patient when trouble comes, and pray at all times.
As restrictions and rules tighten in the UK who better to learn from than Joseph, whose life was filled with ups and downs. I hope this resource strengthens and encourages you as we prepare to face this new season.
