Our Sunday School relies on Roots on the Web for teaching material and now they have made it available to everyone so that you can access each week's resources and activities so that you can support your young person at home!
You can access this via the link below and send any pictures, drawings that you feel are relevant to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share them below!
Roots at Home for Families - Please click on 'Roots at Home' on the right of the page to access the latest resources for the week.
Another resource you might find useful for Church at Home and Storytelling, might be Diddy Disciples.
Finally, there is a Social Zoom Meeting for Young People, hosted by our AFC Leader on Sundays after the Parish Eucharist. If you would like to join, please email email@example.com.
