Resources from the URC

Greetings from Church House in absentia and welcome to the third special supplement to our bimonthly newsletter.

This time we have tackled subjects for which we might wish there would be little need but acknowledge that there will indeed be families within your circle who need support with anxiety, change, loss and bereavement. There is a lot of excellent material and many expert support lines out there if you know where to look, and the aim of this supplement is to signpost to some of these which we consider may be useful. Some of these resources are not specifically Christian but are excellent in the sup-port they offer. If you know of other helpful resources, please do share them more widely and post them on our Facebook page.

And may we all know God’s peace, comfort and strength during this time of loss and change and uncertainty.

For more information see the special supplement from URC Children's and Youth Work.


In response to the current situation, a group from our team of synod-level workers (CYDO+) and Church House staff came together; knowing that people are inundated with online recommendations of things to do while staying safe at home, but at the same time wanting to provide material for those looking for something particularly URC in nature.

 And so we are delighted to bring you

  Families on Faith Adventures @ home 

This will be published weekly and available on our website https://urc.org.uk/resources-for-children-and-youth  and URCLE https://moodle.urc.org.uk/course/view.php?id=208 pages.

It will also be distributed by synod teams to those who request it.

Families on Faith Adventures @ home is designed to support families of all generations as they experience, explore and express faith together through the week. It is a ‘pick and mix’ of activities, games, prayers and challenges based around a story from the Bible and draws on materials from our non-uniformed children’s groups Pilots and FOFA.
