As the schools shut down we have turned to technology, using online videos to continue to reach the children with God’s Word. As part of Ozzy Rd Baptist’s schools team and the Cool Kids church group, Tim Pawson has been involved in writing and recording his parts weekly for editing and production into whole assemblies and children’s lessons for Sunday school classes.

Similarly, Derby Kids for Christ’s assembly team has been meeting remotely to write and coordinate a video assembly to send to all the schools we’ve previously visited regularly and to offer to all the primary schools in Derby.

One Head Teacher said the children were really happy to see the team on the video. Another said she was so encouraged by the assembly, she was going to send it on to all her staff!

They have also been meeting weekly via Zoom to plan and pray for the children, as well as engaging church children with a weekly quiz and games session.

Tim has also been taking the opportunity to meet via Zoom with fellow Walk Through the Bible presenters to share ideas and improve presentations, preparing for such a time as we can get back in to schools again! 

We pray that God’s Word will continue to reach school children, and staff, with whom at present we don’t have any physical presence.
