Resources for Families
We've got lots going on!
Nurture, creative ideas, stories and fun from Catherine and Pug!
The Nurture Room has gone online and Creating Space Chippy is born! If you are on Instagram you can follow @creatingspace.chippy for daily posts with craft ideas, wellbeing messages, storytelling plus art sent in from #CreativeKidsOfChippy! It is proving popular and has been a really positive way of staying in touch with you all. (Click the picture.)
Each week we are also handing out 200+ Family Activity bags based around a theme. Bags are available from the church porch, including family focused craft, colouring sheets, suggestions of music and movement, outside activities, ideas to spark writing and general encouragement. We will also be posting the activity sheets so do check in and share with family and friends.
It's hard to remember what Sunday mornings were like before we had Jonny and Lenny the Llama to brighten our breakfast time. With stories, songs, chat, and the coolest dance moves, you'd be crazy to miss it.
Click on the picture on Sunday mornings to find the "One Way and Ignite" video, underneath the main song list.
A selection of Bible stories told through animation, narrated by our very own Gareth Harper. These smart little Bible stories are guaranteed to make you smile, whether you're 7 or 70. They're quirky, fun, clever and really bring the Bible to life.
If that's not enough we've posted links below to give you ideas for family worship and home-based activities.
