EASTER 2020; Childrens’ Resources for 0-11 year olds.

New and updated 27th April 2020, scroll down for latest.

Dear All,
For the month of May we will be launching a daily craft challenge. Please encourage your churches to join in. A video explaining the challenge and also a video of day 1 can beviewed HERE

The idea is that families will read a section of the Bible or watch a video clip of it and then respond to it creatively. It is a chance to imagine, create, reflect and have fun! Please encourage people to post a photo of their creation to social media using the hashtag: #30dayBiblecraftchallenge so we can share each other’s creativity.
The challenge tasks will be uploaded daily to our Diocese Facebook groups:
If you would like to send the full months challenge out to your communities please contact us at Mobile: 07719971983 Email: clare.cooke@exeter.anglican.org for a pdf copy.
