'Bible And Me' offers an easy-to-use resource for running a primary aged Christian club. It takes children through the Bible, using a different story each week. There is an Old Testament & a New Testament pack (click for details.) Each pack covers 30 sessions, with enough material for an hour's club. It is flexible and can be easily adapted to suit different groups and situations.
The 'Bible And Me' resources appear with kind permission of Matt Rich and has been trialled in several Cumbrian schools. We would ask that you consider making a donation to the requested charity if you are using this material. www.groundwire.org.uk/give (a UK Christian charity working on the internet to bring help & hope to those in need.)
