Kids Church 5th July

How to use this resource:

This document will be set out in a similar order to that of Kids Church each week for ease of use. Feel free to pick and choose an order that works best for you and your family. Some key elements include prayer, bible reading, and questions.

We would love to see you participating in Kids Church from your own homes, so if you would like to share some pictures or comments – we can add them to our weekly kids collage for our St Andrew’s Facebook Page!

You’ll find questions for the Youth at the bottom of the document.
