About the group resources

2017 is the year that we’ll be sharpening our generosity and going all-out to transform our lives and the lives around us. New church and small group resources have been added to the downloads area, with the theme ‘Giving our Best’. Based on Romans 12, the new resources look in depth at giving our best in our service, our gifts, when it hurts and in spite of our feelings.

Also updated for 2017: a 40acts Survival Kit for Families, two new Assemblies for Schools, and a community project guide & Messy Church pack for Churches.
