EXPLORE THE BIBLE WITH THE BIBLE CHAT MAT
Bible Chat Mat allows people of all ages to read the Bible and have conversation together, whether around a meal table, sitting on the sofa or wherever works best. This activity can be done as a household, friends together, home group, Sunday group or even in a school club. The sheets can be coloured and doodled on, allowing you to respond to the Bible story in your own unique way.
The first 12 Chat Mats are all themed as ‘Jesus the…’ and help you to explore a range of New Testament stories.
There are also three seasonal Chat Mats for Easter, Harvest and Christmas available.
We would love to hear your comments and stories about the ways in which you are using the Bible Chat Mat. Please share on Twitter and Instagram or email the Go Team Advisers.
The Go Team commissioned illustrator Andy Gray to design the Bible Chat Mat. Check out more of Andy's work.

THE CHEEKY PANDAS AND THY KINGDOM COME 2021
The Cheeky Pandas partnered with our friends at Thy Kingdom Come to bring you a variety of resources that seek to get children excited about the Bible and prayer, and ultimately, help each child build a beautiful life-long relationship with God… with some panda fun along the way! Given the impact of Covid, we believe it’s never been a more important time to focus on nurturing children in their faith and re-engaging families in the church.
New resources for 2021 will include an 11-part children’s video series called Cheeky Pandas (seen in the picture opposite) – packed with Bible stories, prayers, animation, worship songs and interviews with special guests including CTE Pentecostal President Pastor Agu Irukwu and his wife Shola (Jesus House), adventurer Bear Grylls, CBeebies presenter Gemma Hunt and Revd Nicky Gumbel (HTB and Alpha), to name a few.
The video series can be used as part of church at home, gathered church (online and offline) and in school assemblies. Episodes are accompanied by activity packs. And similar to last year, the series will be the main content in the Family Prayer Adventure Map and App.
This year Thy Kingdom Come have teamed up with the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust to produce 11 video reflections from influential young Christians for the daily themes of Thy Kingdom Come.
Voices include Guvna B, Pippa Baker (Catholic Charismatic Renewal, who has also written the CTE Reflection for May 2021), Jamie Jones-Buchanan (former professional Rugby player) and Elle Limebear (worship leader) to name a few.
Each video reflection includes an accompanying discussion plan which is suitable for use in colleges, youth groups or at home with friends.
And don't miss the CTE Cathedral Purrsuits escape room which has been developed by the team at Christ Church Winchester.
