Welcome to our Kids' Zone. Here's where you will find resources to help our 0-11s continue to engage with faith in the week, as we currently won't be gathering on Sundays.
Memory Verse Monday
Bible in the Week (5 weeks)
What to look forward to in the week…
Memory Verse Monday
Psalm 119 tells us that Gods word is a lamp to our feet. In Hebrews 4:12 it tells us that it is alive and active!
On Mondays watch our ‘Memory Verse Monday’ video as we set a fun (and at some points) challenging way of learning a memory verse.
On Tuesdays we will be uploading a ‘Toddler Tuesday’ pack to our ‘Kids zone’. There will be accessible sensory play ideas, easy activities and a Bible story in video form uploaded every week.
On Wednesdays we will upload a creative prompt that we pray will encourage children to use their creative talents in worshipping at home.
Come Together - Prayer
On Thursdays from 3pm – 3:15pm (roughly) we will gather together online to pray. With parents consent, children can join this by themselves or with parents. If your child is joining us online please make sure they are in the same room as a parent and wearing suitable clothing (ie. No Pyjamas etc). This will be using an online invite which will be sent over whatsapp.
On Fridays from 6:30pm-7:15pm there will be a chance for 7-11 year olds to come together online, share how their weeks have been, connect with friends and take part in challenges. If your child is joining us online please make sure they are in the same room as a parent and wearing suitable clothing (ie. No Pyjamas etc). This will be using an online invite which will be sent over whatsapp.
There are so many great resources available online that may be of use in the coming weeks. Here is a list of some of those things which may be exciting to try out. We will also be posting some of our own material to the Gold Hill Baptist Church Facebook page.
How to Read the Bible
We think it’s so important that everybody is able to open God’s word and engage with it, be excited by it and learn from it. We have created this resource to help everybody at home do this, whatever age you are!
