Southport’s Online Children’s Ministry Resource:

Connect Kids is a video project for children’s groups in local churches to use with primary school aged children. These have proved particularly effective during the COVID-19 lockdown.

These videos take our assembly themes deeper for children who are already involved in a local church children’s work or kids clubs. We appreciate that not all churches have workers that are able to produce these kind of resources so we thought that we would help support the discipleship of children at this time. As our two SASW Trust workers live with Emily, the Kids and Youth Pastor at Christ Church, they have pulled all their expertise together to all be involved in the content for this project and each recognisable faces to thousands of children across Southport schools. Connect Kids involves fun, games, a Bible story, a thought on the Bible story and a response. Churches are welcome to use these themselves, send them out to families or upload them to their own YouTube or social media channels, etc, to make it easier for their families to access it. Please do let us know if you are sharing it to your own channels as it helps us to quantify how many are accessing these videos.

So far we have had hundreds views of these videos on our YouTube Channel and through other churches hosting them on their own channels. Through this page, you will find each weeks video embedded from YouTube, and upon clicking on the video you can also find a link for you to download the video file directly to your device, as well as a short introductory video file to download for each session that could be used as part of your church’s online Sunday service or livestream.
