Aid To The Church In Need Offers Free Children’s Bible Read Alouds

by Family, Gospels, Outstanding Initiatives

Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) is working to share the Gospel with children and families who are spending more time at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

They have recruited twenty-five bishops and several lay leaders from the UK to produce video read alouds of their children’s Bible. Each weekday a video is uploaded to ACN’s YouTube channel along with a reflection on the story by the reader. ACN’s website offers additional content that includes games, crafts, and workbooks.

Dr Caroline Hull, ACN UK’s community outreach manager, said: “ACN project partners around the world tell us that the Child’s Bible is in some cases the only book a child will ever own. The Child’s Bible project provides a fresh opportunity for youngsters to learn the story of our faith, to grow in their understanding of how God has spoken through the ages and have plenty of fun along the way with crafts, drama, puzzles and other challenges.”

They Pray The Rosary Too!
