“Anyone who welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
JESUS Matthew 18:4
The Bridges Kids Church program uses the “Light” curriculum from Scripture Union, which is suitable for all Christian denominations.
Light enables children, young people and adults to develop a personal relationship with Christ, to understand the bible and the Christian faith and to live for God as light in a dark world.
The Light syllabus is about discovering who God is, what he is like, what he does and how we can get involved in that.
The syllabus has been adapted to offer biblical teaching to ages 3 to 13 years divided over 5 different classes.
All the age groups study the same theme/bible passage each time with a range of activities being planned.
The curriculum runs over several years starting with Genesis and continues through the Bible with the New Testament being interwoven at appropriate times.
