Helping Children Engage with the Bible

We are delighted to share this training package with you, and we hope your team will find it helpful as they prepare to work with young people in a small group. It’s our prayer that, as your team become more confident in handling the Bible, children will be gripped by all that they hear and experience, and long to search out more about the Lord for themselves.

SU Scotland’s vision is “to see the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus”.

This training package helps to unpack ways we can encourage children to explore and engage with the Bible. We know that the Bible is exciting and living but for many it can be complex and wrongly perceived.

Aims: 

  • To understand some principles in planning Bible engagement with children
  • To acquire some practical tools for exploring a Bible passage with children

Outcome:

  • To become more confident in using the Bible with children in a small group context
