'Bible And Me' offers an easy-to-use resource for running a primary aged Christian club. It takes children through the Bible, using a different story each week. There is an Old Testament & a New Testament pack (click for details.) Each pack covers 30 sessions, with enough material for an hour's club. It is flexible and can be easily adapted to suit different groups and situations.

The 'Bible And Me' resources appear with kind permission of Matt Rich and has been trialled in several Cumbrian schools.

For details of current Year 6 to 7 deanery transition programmes, please contact your local Deanery Network Youth Church Leader. Where ever possible we advise linking with any Christian club or organisation already working in your local secondary school (e.g. Network Youth Leader, NISCU, local Christian youth worker.)
