Developing links with community partners and schools is key to growing children and youth work. This page shares ideas for activities, assemblies and useful contacts to encourage that relationship-building, and to share the Christian message with pupils.
CSI: Easter resource
CSI: Easter is an engaging, hands-on workshop designed to enable pupils in key stage 2 to discover the beliefs behind the Christian festival.
Through investigation, scientific experimentation, codebreaking, fingerprinting and evidence packs, pupils learn about the events of Good Friday and discover why the garden tomb was empty on Easter Sunday morning. The resource includes a planning book, pupil booklet and video clips to provide all the information, ideas and resources needed for you to run, lead and host the project in your church, worship space or local school.
