Children & Family Online Resources

Welcome to our online resources! As we’re all aware during this current situation we are unable to run Light Factory, Friday Club and other groups in person but we want to remain committed to providing resources which parents and children can use at home.

So, each week we will be uploading a set of materials which are easy to use and will allow you to run a mini session with your child at home. This is split into Pre-school, Infants and Juniors and all you need to do is click on the link to download the materials. In addition to this you might need some crafty bits – if for any reason you are unable to get hold of the craft things you need please do get in touch and we can help source these for you.

We are also introducing a fortnightly children’s challenge (see below for more information)

To keep in touch with all the latest information regarding our children’s groups, family events and for more resources please check out our Facebook group: St Mary’s Eaton Socon – Children & Family, Regular & One-off events

If you have any ideas of anything else you’d like to see please get in touch with our Community, Families and Children’s Worker on cfcw@eatonsocon.org

Current Resources

For the next 10 weeks we will be using “The King, The Snake and The Promise” as a basis for our resources. Each week you will have something to help you think about the theme, a story to read, a craft to complete and other activities to use. The material is for you to use as you want to but I would encourage you to read the story and to do the craft every week as it forms a huge completed craft by the end.

Due to holidays we may update a few sessions at a time, please pay attention to the dates as to which session is for which week

Permission for using this material has kindly be granted by Emu Music (distributor) and Phil Campbell (author).

Fortnightly Children’s Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is for all children and anyone can submit an entry. It will be something which your child can make or complete and all you need to do is take a picture and send it to: cfcw@eatonsocon.org

These will then be shown on the screens during our Sunday Services.

By submitting your photograph, you are giving permission for it to be shown on the screens on Sunday morning and online via live stream. If you choose to submit a picture which includes your child please do not include any identifying details (e.g. school, child’s name).

Current Challenge has now ended, a new challenge will be updated soon – keep an eye on this page for details!
