Andy Frost, the director of Share Jesus International, also works with Care for the Family on the Kitchen Table Project
During the pandemic many local churches are unable to provide children’s work in person and have adopted online videos instead. These are a great stop gap but the danger is that children’s work becomes just 15 minutes of screen time. Andy believes that the content we produce for children needs to act as springboard into the week, providing parents and carers with ideas to take the conversation forward!
Encounters with Jesus is a pilot, mini series of videos in which Andy shares some of his favourite stories from the Gospels. Using footage from Lumo he gives five practical ideas to engage with the Biblical text as a family. The hope is that local churches will find these useful in encouraging families to journey deeper with God together.
Please note these videos have been created on a shoe-string budget and are very much a pilot. If you find these useful or have any feedback do get in touch here.
A bit of background
Just 50% of children growing up in Christian homes will keep their faith as adults. What many people don’t realise is that mums, dads and carers are the most important influence on children developing a faith that lasts. The Kitchen Table Project raises awareness of the role mums and dads play and provides the tools and support to help parents succeed in inspiring faith at home.
