I’m excited to share this new website with you. (click picture or sentence to go to it)
The Additional Needs Team at St Saviour’s Church Guilford have put together Bible teaching materials for children with additional needs in a website that is easy accessible.
It is just like the one I am trying to create with materials for adults with learning disabilities based on the Bible teaching plans I have collected from the Good News Group over the past 10 years. And even more exciting is that someone else I know is making a similar website for teenagers with additional needs. Won’t it be wonderful when we have all these resources online? Please pray for the work still in development.
In other news – The Good News Group did their annual Carol Service and the church was full with visitors. We hope to have one or two new members joining us from this outreach service. We also got a Christmas card from the ArchBishop of Canterbury which made us quite excited. (Thanks to our Lord’s Prayer video, I think!)
This term we are trying to enable some of our group to do the talks each week. We are teeming up together and the member who speaks is choosing their favourite Bible story for us to base the teaching on. They will get the chance to share their faith story and tell the group what we can learn from the Bible story they have chosen. It’s going to be a learning experience as we figure out how to enable our members to get up front and preach – but I’m really excited and hope to write about how it goes.
In March we are doing a workshop at the Blackburn Diocese Children’s work conference. I’m taking a team of our members and we are going to show people how they can make and use a Sensory Bible Story to make the Bible accessible to children with additional needs. We should have a great time and will need to do it twice so I’m just wondering whether to do the same story twice or two different stories?!
I hope you’ll keep in touch and that God blesses the ministry you are involved in.
