This new book could be an ideal suggestion for youth or children’s leaders who are not too sure of the Bible or the Christian faith. It’s designed as a pre-confirmation course to give children a grounding in the basics of the Christian faith, and offers questions and discussion at a variety of levels for parents and group leaders.
Here are two of your intrepid team discovering new ideas and resources for working with Under 5s, young families and Baptisms. Now those of you in the north of the Diocese can discover these things for yourself too!
