About These Resources

The resources currently available are just a taster whilst we put together the brand new website. Because I have to fit this in with lots of other commitments, I will slowly build up the resources over time. Please bear with us!

All of our prayer resources are for families to use together - what ever your family looks like. But, they can also be used by children and family leaders in different situations, including all age worship.

We’ve been hearing that for many, family devotions have been a stressful step too far during lock-down, and that grownups in some households have lost some confidence in the area of nurturing faith at home.

We really hope this resource will help to rebuild confidence, be lots of fun to do, and help all who do them to grow in faith. We have tried to make them broadly accessible for families who have children with additional needs - but with such a wide spectrum of additional needs, we appreciate that one or two may not work for individual children with specific needs.


Try to view the activities as a launch pad for your imagination! You can use them as written, or change them to fit how your family works. If you want some ideas to make them accessible to specific needs, do send us a message.

Many of these activities would work with small children’s groups too - but be aware of Covid rules as you choose them. I’ll be writing another note on using them safely with groups under the current restrictions - for example, blowing bubbles might not be a good idea!

Have fun!
