Help! My home group leader is wrong…

Tim Thornborough | July 5th 2019

It’s home group as usual — the coffee is poured, Janice has made a cake that is going down a treat, and there is an excited buzz around the room as we share how our week is going.... continue reading

 

Every child needs a hero

Richard Roper | July 4th 2019

It’s true. Well, it certainly was for me. From the days when I first learnt to read I found mine in the pages of books. On a wet afternoon or during a boring visit to an unknown auntie a small boy who reads would be complimented, given a biscuit and left alone while his imagination took him to places far away from his mundane surroundings.... continue reading

How our church recruited 20 new families workers for £300 per year

Dave Griffith-Jones | July 2nd 2019

Every church I know wishes that it had more people and more money to be involved in children’s work. We all wish we had the resources to have more groups in Sunday School, more work in schools, more clubs during the week, so that more children could know and love Jesus. How can we recruit workers for this young harvest field?... continue reading

 

Running on empty

Jonty Allcock | June 27th 2019

When we take God’s commands seriously, then sooner or later—sooner, in fact—we face the question: How do I do what is impossible for me to do?... continue reading

Think back to a book that you treasured as a child. Chances are that you can instantly bring up some of the key illustrations in your mind’s eye. They probably make you feel a small surge of nostalgia. ... continue reading

 

Surely a same-sex partnership is OK if it's committed and faithful?

Sam Allberry | June 24th 2019

One of the arguments commonly made today in favour of same-sex partnerships is that what must surely count above all else is faithfulness and commitment. Shouldn’t faithfulness within a relationship be what determines its moral goodness rather than the gender of those involved in it? A promiscuous gay lifestyle with multiple partners and one-night stands might be wrong, but two people who love each other and are faithful to whatever promises they have made—surely that’s OK?... continue reading

 

Interview with Catalina Echeverri, llustrator of The Tales That Tell The Truth Series

Joe Henegan | June 20th 2019

When The Good Book Company set out to produce The Christmas Promise, our first hardback children’s storybook, we knew that the illustrations would be crucial to how children would receive them. We knew that our Tales That Tell The Truth books would need to look stunning in order to keep pace with the competition at storytime.... continue reading

 

Same sex relationships: should we just agree to disagree?

Sam Allberry | June 19th 2019

Some issues in the Christian life matter more than others. The apostle Paul made a distinction between matters that were primary to the gospel, and issues that were not. In 1 Corinthians 15 v 3 he writes, “What I received I passed on to you as of first importance.” This is not to say that other issues are of no importance, just that they are not of first importance.... continue reading

 

The enduring impact of Narnia on my life

Katy Morgan | June 18th 2019

I still remember sitting on the blue chair in our living room at Christmas when I was six years old, tearing the wrapping paper off the largest, heaviest book I had ever held in my hands. The cover was golden brown and green and spread with a spidery map, adorned with little scenes in which girls and boys stood alongside winged horses and bearded dwarfs. From the top corner the dark face of a lion stared out at me.... continue reading
