This resource aims to introduce, explain and explore the Christian faith, providing familiarity with the Bible story and context for widely used references in popular culture such as David and Goliath, the great flood or the good Samaritan.
It covers 36 key Bible passages in a year, each accompanied by a readable, ready-prepared thought for the day, including interactive questions, a prayer and a song suggestion. Each assembly offers a choice of traditional and contemporary versions of the Bible and of classic and modern Christian prayers to suit the school's preference.
Helen knows what she's talking about. A hugely experienced teacher and theologian, she has created an accessible, easy to use resource for hard-pressed assembly leaders. Over the year your children will hear the Christian story unfolded, and they will grow spiritually and culturally. I am delighted to commend this work and I hope it will be widely used.
Rt Revd Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool
