Journeying through the Bible with children

Picture the scene. It’s Saturday night and I suddenly remember I am on rota to lead kids church in the morning. I scrabble around to find my notes to see what I’m supposed to be teaching about. Find my Bible to read the passage.

Like Father, Like Son

In recent years, through personal experiences in family life and friendship, I’ve gained a greater awareness of the needs of children who, for one reason or another, need to be fostered or adopted. As a society we rightly give special priority to the care and support of such children.

Moving On: JSP’s 1st National Conference at The Briery in Ilkley

We didn’t sing On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at (even though for some it was their first visit to Ilkley) and there wasn’t much time for wandering about on the Moor. But we had a very special time together that added much to JSP foundations for ensuring healthy future growth.

JSP's Future Development

JSP is developing in a way that encourages churches to support one another in their adoption of JSP. Such a process requires that our ‘Central Core Team’ is small and flexible as it responds to fresh opportunities and challenges.

New Resource: Team Building

JSP identifies ‘Five Priorities’ that sum up the ministry of Jesus, and these are explored by churches that adopt JSP. Afterwards many churches find the need to focus more intentionally on one of these, so resources to enable this are steadily growing.
