The below blog post is a guest post from my friends at Church Society, an Anglican think tank/organisation, that exists to serve and resource the church. In this anniversary of the Reformation, it is great to see some child-friendly resources celebrating and educating that important piece of church history.
Reformation 500 Resources
These Reformation 500 resources provide a comprehensive teaching package for children, young people and families, written by experienced children’s and youth workers, Robin Barfield and Nathan Phillingham, with additional material by Chris Joyce.
Most of the packages are organised into three sessions, focussed on three key reformers: Martin Luther, William Tyndale and Thomas Cranmer. The Light Party material has a different set up, so that it does not overlap with the rest.
Series overview, plus background information on Luther, Tyndale and Cranmer, with suggestions for further reading.
