Deliver five days of activities, games, recipes, memory verses and adventures to the doorsteps of families in your church and community!

This summer is going to be very different for the church –  one significant difference is that we are not able to host holiday clubs in the way we have done before.

We don’t want to miss out on opportunities to reach the families near us, so we’ve put together a FREE “home delivery” holiday club resource for you to take to children and parents in your church and wider local communities!

There are three packs of resources covering three themes, so you can pick which one works for you – or use all three!

For each week we have created:

  • Five Family Activity Cards with short Bible verses and an engaging activity to help everyone in the family think about the passage. You can order these cards to be delivered to you, or download them from the site.
    The cards are free – but we ask you to pay for postage.

  • Five Online Events outlines designed to be used on a 30 minute video conference call platform (Zoom, Skype etc.)o

Here’s how it works:

Choose your theme and order the number of family activity cards you will need (you can also download the cards and print at home).

Put together your bag of discovery – buy some bags (paper, cotton, you choose!)  and put the five activity cards (order the free activity packs from us) inside, along with the items needed for the activities (provided by you). A list of suggested items can be seen on each theme page. You can also fill the bag with some extra treats!

Organise your online events. Work out what time of day you want to hold them and how you are going to let the families know about them. Detail about the online events can be found on the different theme pages.

Deliver the bags to the houses of the families taking part! Make sure to let them know if you are also holding a daily online event to accompany the week of activities.

Put together your pack!

We’ve put together a list of materials to put into your bags – but why not get creative (and generous!) Make the bags a special treat to open the door to, and make sure you give clear indication about who you are, and how each family can get involved!

Themes:

Five days of activities and online events about the God who gives us strength and peace when we feel weak and scared.

Five days of activities and online events about the God who is with us, and brings us hope even when life is difficult.

Five days of activities and online events based on the book of Ruth. 

Share your weeks of discovery!

Churches across Scotland are getting involved with Bags of Discovery – delivering gifts of fun, activity, and good news to hundreds of families this summer.

We’d love to see how you’re getting on! Whether you’re packing your bags, off on a delivery, deep into craft making, or hosting an event – tag us on Facebook and show us how you are using your Bags of Discovery!

We have compiled resources which can help you and your loved ones stay in close relationship with God. These resources also equip all who are engaging in virtual community to stay close to one another.
