Are you a teacher, a church leader or a youth worker involved in taking assemblies in primary schools? If so, we hope that our Bible Timeline Assemblies will be of interest to you.
What if assemblies didn’t have to be random and unconnected from week to week? What if there was a programme to follow – so that each individual assembly followed on from the one before and led into the next one? What if each of those responsible for leading assemblies in any particular school were able to follow the scheme and had resources available to help them lead the assembly? What if the assemblies were strongly Bible-based and tied in to the RE Curriculum for controlled schools in Northern Ireland?
These were the questions that led to us developing a series of 72 assemblies designed to take children through the Bible over the course of three years. Is this a scheme that your school would be interested in? Or is this a scheme that you as a group of church leaders and schools workers could offer to deliver in your local primary schools?
If so, check out the programme overview and the assemblies available so far at www.suni.co.uk/bibletimeline. Most of them are best suited to KS2 or whole school assemblies, but many could be adapted for KS1.
The full series will be available from September 2017. In the meantime, if you are able to use any of these assemblies we’d value any feedback or suggestions you may have to help us make them as user-friendly, Biblical, context-appropriate and engaging as we can. Please send your comments to: email@example.com.
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
a light will shine.”
Isaiah 9:2 (NLT)
May you know the reality of the Light of Christ this Christmas and in the year to come.
Thank you for being part of the work of SUNI in 2016.
Have a Happy New Year
