Children's Story Page

As we are unable to currently run our children's clubs / youth groups at this time here are some Bible Stories for you to watch to help you continue to learn about the Lord Jesus and the message of the Bible.

To answer the question in the video title, we challenge you to remember the story of the Good Samaritan and then meet another Mr (and Mrs) Buckeridge to see how this story is part of the inspiration for part of the work they do.

Why & How should we serve?

Today we take a brief look at the parable of the sheep and goats to see the extra importance Jesus places on serving others.

This week we are thankful for harvest and ask what kind of harvest will we produce.

Serving others

Today we go on a journey to Cyprus to learn about its patron saint and his example of service to others

Friendship & Service

Today we follow the story of Ruth and Naomi to learn something about friendship and service.
