AREA 52 goes live!

AREA 52 goes live!

Posted: 20 Oct 2015 17:11

We're super-excited about a brand new side of our website, packed full of creative resources for your church.  It is called AREA 52, because it is based around the weekly Bible readings of the Lectionary.  The idea has come from genius writer and storyteller Bob Hartman, who has also committed himself to write a new script for every week of the year!

Alongside Bob's creative readings are a host of other resources - prayers, PowerPoints, poems, images... and these will be growing and developing as the months progress.  Launching at the beginning of Lectionary Year C means we've got a whole bunch of new Advent themed resources.  And all of this is free, downloadable and adaptable for your situation.  

If you've never used the Lectionary before, or want some tips on how to engage with it creatively, we've written an article to get you going.  The great thing about AREA 52 is it is just as useful for the church who follows the Lectionary every week as it is for the person just dipping in or trying it out.  So we pray you will be blessed with these resources!
