Children’s resources

Bible Month is a great time to encourage children to read the Bible.

To help with this, we’ve produced this five week session plan with a Bible story and weekly key theme (we’ve added a spare week just in case you need it!). You can use The Big Little Bible to share the story each week. We’ve also included the key verse on each illustration for colouring in. All the illustrations are available for download below.

The five week session plan

Each week features a key Bible story taken from The Big Little Bible (but you can use any Bible). The stories bring to life key messages for children including trusting in God, keeping your eyes on Jesus and saying thanks to God. Through these sessions, the aim is to demonstrate how we can learn from the Bible.
