Explore the Bible with the Bible Chat Mat. Bible Chat Mat, from the Diocese of Bath and Wells,  allows people of all ages to read the Bible and have conversation together, whether around a meal table, sitting on the sofa or wherever works best. This activity can be done as a household, friends together, home group, Sunday group or even in a school club. The sheets can be coloured and doodled on, allowing you to respond to the Bible story in your own unique way. Download it from here.

‘Together at Home’.  Free resources for families to help them explore the Bible and learn about God together whilst in their own homes.  Each week there are two packs full of family activities, Bible study, prayer and printable puzzle sheets.  One of the packs is based on the readings that would normally be used in Church that week.  Visit website.

There are resources for Holy Week and Easter resources suitable for families and children on our Holy Week & Easter at home page here.
