Lockdown resources

To support young people to stay engaged and feel valued during the period of Covid-19 restrictions, we have developed a new resource – sample notes pages for young people. These can be shared with families in advance of a Sunday service, therefore used by young people continuing to take part in church from their homes, or printed out at home and brought along to a service. Samples can be downloaded below:

Church notes
Parish notes
