Support & Donate to Barnabas Children's Ministry
All that we do is made possible through the generosity of the individuals, churches and charitable trusts that support our work. Barnabas Children's Ministry doesn't generate very much income itself (the only aspect we charge for is some of the training, and the Barnabas RE Days we lead in schools) and so we are dependent each year on the financial support of those that share the vision for these pioneering ministries.
Your support for our ministry is therefore vital.
There are several ways in which you could help:
Whatever you're able to do, we are extremely grateful to you.
There are three aspects to Barnabas Children's Ministry:
Barnabas in churches: resourcing churches, children and families to explore the Bible and grow in faith
- working directly with churches to help them develop their children's ministry teams;
- speaking and leading workshops at regional and national events (e.g. Christian Resources Exhibitions, Children's Ministry Conference, National Children's Adviser Conference, Keswick Convention);
- leading training days for children's leaders and quiet days for teachers;
- plus a wide range of books and resources for children's leaders and a website www.barnabasinchurches.org.uk packed with free, downloadable ideas and articles and information
- working with primary schools throughout the UK, leading creative arts-based Barnabas RE Days which explore big themes (Who Am I? Whose World? Who is my Neighbour? It's not fair! What's so special about the Bible? Where in the World? and Why Narnia?) through story-telling and the creative arts, using Bible stories as the starting point;
- leading specialist RE-related Barnabas In-Service Training (INSET) sessions for teachers;
- plus a range of books and resources for assembly, collective worship, drama and Christian festivals and a website www.barnabasinschools.org.uk which offers assembly ideas and lesson plans to download and use free of charge
- Faith in Homes is also part of our Barnabas Children's Ministry, looking at how we can resource, enable and equip families to explore the Christian faith at home. Visit www.faithinhomes.org.uk to find out more.
