It’s EASTER Sunday! Yay!
Hey Kids, before we start… I need to whisper in your parents ears!….
…please check out the Bible Story before your kids… “Why?” you might ask… Because Easter can be quite sad and cause distress for some children. We would recommend that you watch the story set for your child’s age and if you think it’s too young, go and check out what an older class is covering. Again, if it’s too advanced for your child, choose a younger class.
We really recommend parents engage with their children as they watch these Bible stories in case they have questions. We are focusing on celebration of Jesus being alive today! Please note: the Bible Stories look the same, but they are not. They have been made by the same YouTube channel.
Hey Kids!! This Sunday is a super important it’s EASTER!!!! YUM YUM! Hopefully that means a few chocolate treats for you in the shapes of OVALS! We love hearing back from your parents about how much you ENJOY it. We all know that food is important, so here is some spiritual food for YOU! YuM, SLURP, CrUnCh! We have organized it by age or year at school. Each class has their own links for BIBLE STORIES, MeMoRy VeRsEs, PRAISE & WORSHIP, OBJECT LESSONS & MUCH MORE!!! Have fun…

For the Parents
We like our children to be inspired, encouraged and lets face it, if it helps them, it helps us! Your children are important to us and they SUPER important to God. We have put together this webpage so your children know that they are important, loved and that we have taken the time to invest in them!
They are VALUEABLE!
We want them to feel: loved, joyful, inspired, excited, and equipped spiritually.
Life is unpredictable, but God is sure and secure, we can always rely on Him.
We want to encourage our families to bring God into the conversations that we are having with our children. How are we feeling? What are we thinking? Can we share what we are thinking with Mum & Dad? We want our children feel safe when they share with us. So how do we do that? We listen and don’t react, but thoughtful process with the Holy Spirit how we can offer wise council to them. Maybe they just need us to listen… God sees us and our children, He wants us to share with Him and feel safe with Him.
PLEASE NOTE: that after watching our video links, youTube will pop up with suggestions for you to watch. We advise, having an adult in the room while your child watches these videos as we don’t know what content might show after our videos.
Here is a letter that that we put together that you can download that is very practical about how you can help your kids.
