The Chronicles of Narnia

Step through the wardrobe

and get the discussion started

This is a slightly new style for the disorganised sunday school blog: no games, songs or memory verses but a youth group style talk and discussion. Great for older kids as it is (we played games either side) or an exploration of themes you can adapt for younger kids if you want. Also it includes what is probably my best idea ever! That’s for those of you who don’t find Narnia itself enough of a draw.

This week: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (2 talks)
Next week: Assorted other books

There’s no place like home

The Promised Land at last

and a promised rest as well.

The second day of our kids material for our church weekend away is here at last! If you missed last weeks you can find it here.
Unfortunately, I forgot to put the video we used up with the rest of the stuff last time – I’ve added it now and there’s another in this week’s so it seems a great opportunity to recommend yet another fantastic resource to you.

Check out the God’s Story videos from Crossroads Kids Club. They’re beautifully produced with a nice clear simple explanation that’s neither just facts or just application but the right amount of both. The animation styles differ but they all look great (they’ve also produced a few in Chinese and Spanish) and they cover a broad range of stories not only narrative. We used ‘Joshua Becomes Leader’ and ‘God’s Reminders’ for our weekend away but there are so many I’m sure we’ll come back to them later. They’ve also got a whole load of songs, verses and something called ‘the kitchen’ which I haven’t had a chance to check out yet but I’m looking forward to seeing more of what they’ve got!
