Sunday Transformers

Nick is leading Transformers most weeks.  His plan to film himself in the basement has failed so each week or so he’ll pop some content up here. The mini congregations have different age splits, so it may be that the video is too young or old for you children.   You can view the latest Transformers input on the Transformers Playlist on the HBC YouTube Channel.

What’s in the service for your mini congregation?

The plan is to have an all-age element at the start of the service, even though there are no children in the main sanctuary, for all ages to enjoy at home.  Sometimes that is live, Like Ian and his backpack, or sometimes pre-recorded like Nick hiding teddy bears.

Talking About Racial Injustice

You may have seen lots in the news about race and racism.

However, our God is a God of Justice and we are called to “walk justly” in this world.

Here is a resource exploring what the Bible says about Justice which I hope can be a helpful starting point for you. Download here

 

Discussing Race and Justice with your children.

For Parents/Carers,

Above are some images that might help us represent God’s love for all people better in our homes, they are designed for kids leaders but are equally applicable for homes.

You may wish to talk through this newsround article.

The following links are to blog posts/articles exploring how we speak to our children about race from a Christian perspective – and include useful links to other resources.

Parenting for Faith – Talking with children and teens about injustice

Wendy Claire Barrie – Talking to our children about race.

Christinevhides – Talking about race and racism with children.

Parents Guide To Black Lives Matter – Nick’s friend has been part fo a team creating this resource – it’s not a Christian resource but very helpful.
