What is Shine Kids?
Shine Kids aim to help children meet Jesus through the Bible and share Jesus with their friends.
The Shine Kids team want to provide primary school SU leaders with the resources to encourage children across Northern Ireland to meet Jesus and share Jesus with others in their schools.
The theme for Shine Kids 2021 is 'CHOSEN TO SHINE'.
This year, Shine Kids is running for two weeks in May 2021:
10th May – CHOSEN FOR GOD'S GREATER PLAN (Assembly)
17th May - CHOSEN FOR GOD'S GREATER PURPOSE (S.U. Session)
How to use the programme?
Shine Kids is designed to be a missional outreach programme, encouraging pupils to share Jesus with their friends. This year we have an assembly resource that can be used with the full school, and a SU session.
We understand that you may not be running your SU group this academic year, but please feel free to unload the programme to your school's online platforms and encourage children to get involved from home!
Why these dates?
As a team, we’d love to see schools across our country be missional while, at the same time, praying and feeling connected to each other. Shine Kids will usually run in Term 2 but, with how plans have worked this academic year, we felt the best thing to do was hold off and run the programme in Term 3.
We completely understand that your school calendar may not work around these dates, so please feel free to run it at a time that best suits you.
Our prayer for you as you use this programme is that you will, 'shine like stars as you hold firmly to the word of life.’ (Phil 2:15-16)
