Round & About
Round & About is an interactive discipleship resource to help children, adults and families to find ways that help them to live out their faith in following Jesus. It encourages you to chat and pray together as a family, or as a group of children with a leader. It can also be used by those of all ages living under the same roof.
The Reflectionary - Lectionary-based ideas for involving children in worship
The Reflectionary has articles and resources related to the Bible readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. They are posted on Mondays, ahead of when they are needed, giving you time to prepare for groups or services. In addition to the main Monday posts, extra items are added many Fridays – meditations, children’s puzzle pages, scripts, activities etc.
