  • Need

    Need

    The lack of knowledge about the Christian faith and the stories of the Bible in primary school children. We find that when we tell even 'well known' Bible stories including the Christmas and Easter stories children are hearing them for the first time!

    Solution

    We work in partnership with local churches in about 50 primary schools in the london boroughs of Enfield, Barnet and Haringey. We take regular Christian assemblies, run lunch time and after school clubs and teach RE lessons. We have regular contact with nearly 16,000 children and weekly contact through our clubs with over 100 children. Children love our presentations and cheer when they see us arrive at their school because we make the Bible fun, relevant and exciting.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide Christian education that is fun and relevan to children in primary schools in N London.

    Activities

    » Christian Assemblies in primary schools
    » Christian lunchtime and after school clubs in primary schools
    » Christian RE lessons in primary schools

    Success will be...more children hearing the stories of the Bible and how the Christian faith relates to them today.


  • Impact

    Impact

    In telling children about the Christian faith and the stories of the Bible our hope is that they will be better informed to make up their minds about what they believe. We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ "is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16) and that salvation comes from God and not from us. Our job is to tell the good news, so we are not able to demonstrate success as that is in God's hand
