What Price Peace?

What Price Peace?

A teaching resource for primary schools exploring issues of war and peace Chris Hudson £8.99

How do we help children mark the centenary of the First World War? Our modern world certainly seems to be just as turbulent a place as it was 100 years ago, so what's to be gained from discussing it now? The centenary raises interesting questions about how faith and belief connect with the real world. For many people of that time, faith played a powerful part in holding oneself together. Faith also informed the courage of many who protested against the war. Their individual stories can give us cause to reflect on what we would do today in similar situations - and may even inspire us. 'What price peace?' is a project from Barnabas for Children which, although aimed at helping primary schools make sense of the war, has much that could be used in a church context too. What Price Peace? can help encourage children and young people to ask difficult questions and connect the Jesus of the Bible to our modern world, as well as providing a number of surprising stories that you can use as the basis of open discussion.

Creative Mission

Creative Mission

Over 50 ideas for special days, celebrations, festivals, community-based projects and seasonal activities Rona Orme £8.99

Creative Mission sets out to demonstrate that mission is fun, practical, easy-to-do and, above all, possible. The book contains a wealth of ideas to help churches, large and small, urban and rural, to connect with people who have occasional contact with the church, as well as suggestions for the church family to join in community events. Many of the ideas are for families, children and adults, to enjoy together or alongside one another. Some ideas can be used within worship; others are for social events, fundraising activities, campaigns for justice across the world or RE and assemblies in schools. All will appeal to children as well as adults, but many can also be used if there are few or no children in the church family.
