  • Primary schoolchildren are required to learn about Christianity and local churches are often keen to help, but don’t know where to start.


    RE Active Church provides a four-year cycle of workshops that local churches can offer to children at Key Stage 2 (school years 3 to 6, ages 7 to 11). The tried-and-tested material covers Christmas, Easter and stories about Jesus, and includes everything you need to run sessions in your local church. The book also contains all the templates needed for the craft activities and additional material for use with nursery and Key Stage 1 children.


    Workshops include:

     - Christmas animals

     - Easter friends

     - Christmas angels

     - Eggy Easter

     - Christmas gifts

     - Jesus' special prayer

     - Help! It's Christmas

     - Four faces of Jesus

     - Easter footprints

     - Jesus changes lives

     - Easter words

     - Who is Jesus?

    `[RE Active Church] provides thoroughly enjoyable activities that have become a welcome tradition within our school. A`hands-on' experience which can then be applied within the classroom.'


     - Teachers from Peartree School, Welwyn Garden City


    `They make it really fun to learn about Christianity by acting it out or doing an activity.'


     - RE Active Church participant, Applecroft School, Welwyn Garden City


    `What we need ... are imaginative ways of taking the Christian story into the hearts of our children so that they can engage with it, participate in it, wonder and puzzle over it, and be moved by it ... I hope the ideas in this book will be used in hundreds of churches all over the land.'


     - From the Foreword by the Rt Revd John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford
