Emoji Bible 
What if famous Bible stories were told using emojis? Which emojis would you use to sum up a well-known parable? How would you describe your faith journey in just three emojis?  

No-one chooses to be homeless, but sadly thousands of people across the UK face the difficulty of not having a place to call home. Explore this problem in more detail and look at ways we can all support those in need.

The Dream Team 
A good team is made up of team members who all bring something useful to the table. Consider who would make your ‘Dream Team’ and what skills you’d want. 

Me & My Money
