Connected – children’s group materials

Elaine Webster

Elaine Webster has experience as a youth and children’s worker of many years standing, and she’s written a curriculum for churches to use on Sunday or mid-week for discipleship with children and teens.

Connected will help children and young people develop hearts that are connected to God, each other and the community around them. They will explore who God is, their identity in Him and develop a relationship with a living God who loves and treasures them. Connected covers what it means to be powerful and free, how to develop two way conversation with God, healing, compassion, generosity, risk and much more.

What’s included?

There are 14 flexible sessions in every term, designed to be delivered straight off the page. There are teaching notes to help you and your teams develop new skills and letters for parents so they can continue faith development at home. It includes an all age worship sessions for every term and social ideas so that your young people have the opportunity to grow in community and build relationships.

Once you sign up for a term or a year, you’ll also have access to an online feedback centre so you can let Elaine and others know how you get on with a particular session. They also want to know what God did in your session, what you learned or adapted so that they can share that blessing with future users.

Faith needs to be lived throughout the week – not just on Sundays or in church. Most of the week children are not in church – they are in homes with their families. But families find it hard to live and model what it means to be Christian. One small rural community is experimenting with adapting the Messy Church principles to use in the home with two or three families gathered together. Read how they are getting on.

This website offers bite-sized Bible study for all the family. The bite-sized activities are designed to be straightforward, flexible… and heaps of fun.

How does it work? You’ll be given a theme for the week, a chunk of the Bible to get your teeth into and some cool things to do that will help your family talk about and reflect on the theme. Each week follows the same pattern, so you will soon get used to it.
