Children and youth resources
We have developed in partnership with The Church of England’s Children’s Work Advisers, a range of resources for children and young people which can be used in church, school or at home.
You can download and print the resources below.

In addition to our Christingle resources, schools can also make use of our free Key Stage 2 Citizenship and PSHE teaching resource My Life 4 Schools. This web based interactive resource is aimed at 7-11 year olds and can be used all year round.
The range of curriculum-linked activities was designed with primary school teachers to develop the skills children need for a happy, healthy childhood. Irrespective of the age and ability of the children, you will find that all the resources are accessible and appealing to all.
