This resource has been signposted from our Diocesan youth, children and families missioner and provides an alternative to worship for children that they can use at home. ROOTS is offering free resources to use at home every week on the ROOTS website. All the materials focus on the same Bible passage and include prayers, reflection and questions to ponder, as well as family time talking points and activities.
Bible related sing-a-long songs
We know many children have benefited from the Joe Wicks workouts each morning, well here is a singing alternative! This link provides some worship songs to learn and sing along to, Bob Hartman's Rhyming Bible and the accompanying songs can be found on YouTube — they're great fun!
Heartsmart for home
In school we use the Heartsmart materials for our PHSE worship and curriculum. In response to school closures, the team at Heartsmart have launched a free family resource kit that all children/parents can access at home and online. There's lots of purpose filled activities, a daily Boris film, fun videos — we do hope it brings strength and wellbeing during this unsettling time.
The link can be found here.
