KidsTIDE is an adaption of the TIDE course for children by Firelighter Steve Henwood, BUT IT IS MUCH MORE than 12 teaching sessions!

While it incorporates masses of teaching material that can be used in stand-alone sessions it is intended to combine a complete approach to teaching children through example, fun, experience and Scriptural understanding over a period of years.

The material is very practical, having been tried out in a number of locations over a number of years, giving instructions to leaders on how to present the different topics together with lots of ideas on how to make these fun and interesting.

The course starts with the “Foundations” material which undergirds the topics that are taught and is the place to start.

When using the main teaching material, there are “weaves” – themes that are so important that they  should be used in a drip-feed approach throughout using the other topical material. These weaves are worship, prayer, encouragement, servanthood and the Bible.

If you think this course, may be for you then please download and read the KidsTIDE Introduction which tells you more….click here.

If you would like to have an idea of what the material looks like then the Bible weave is available…click here
