Short Talks

These are scripts for three to five minute All-Age talks. They will typically be used in church services before children and young people leave for their own age group teaching.

They could also be used as a start point for simple addresses on a variety of occasions for example during an All-Age communion service.

New series based on Lectionary readings being added weekly.  Search using Lectionary Sunday eg. “Lectionary 12.”

New resources are being added regularly – follow us on twitter for updates.
