As part of our continuing support for leaders, we are excited to provide 4-week taster programmes for the new session (including an Open Night), Outdoor Face-to-Face Activity, Virtual Sessions and the #BBatHOME programme.

The taster programmes have been designed to provide a fully resourced and structured programme over the course of a 4-week period, helping to provide you with everything you need to run an engaging, balanced and successful programme of activities for children and young people in a particular setting.

The Taster Programme – New Session / Open Night

The Open Night Taster Programme will provide a structured programme which supports the first four weeks of your new session, and could be used to include an Open Night in the third week.

The Taster Programme – Outdoors

The Outdoor Taster Programme is designed to provide a structured programme which can take place outdoors, helping to provide you with the ideas and support to run an engaging, balanced and successful programme of activities for children and young people in your Church grounds, local park, woodland or open space. The programme contains activities for all age groups over a 4-week period along with guidance for leaders on running face-to-face activities in an outdoor setting.

The Taster Programmes – Virtual Sessions & #BBatHOME

The programme provides a fully resourced plan for each week, including a choice of activities, videos and PowerPoint slides (for Virtual Sessions) and will signpost where you will find additional resources you’ll need. This has been designed to try to provide leaders with as much support as possible, and particularly for those considering taking their programme outdoors or who have not yet tried Virtual Sessions or #BBatHOME. 

Please take time to read through the Leader Guidance which provides support and ideas on using the taster programmes.
