Key Stage 3:
The History and Life of Churches
DVD - launched April 2012 - available now!
We have worked with Serious Media to create a short DVD to present the living church to children and young people: Showing what happens in these amazing historical buildings and how the building and artefacts are used in worship.
Starting from the point of looking at the heritage of the buildings, the DVD goes on to explore...
The DVD has many uses but is aimed at enabling churches and teachers to help the teaching of Christianity in schools, with a particular focus on key stages 2 & 3.
We are very grateful to St Mary's church, Sutton-in-Ashfield and St Helen's church, Stapleford for allowing us to film during their services and events.
