Covid-19 update
Through these times of restriction, we've been adapting our weekly resources:

  • supporting leaders as they run online sessions and groups
  • enabling households to worship together at home.

ROOTS resources have always been highly adaptable, making it possible for churches to use them in many different ways. Now, as church communities explore new and changing ways of gathering, we'll be offering inspiring and practical ideas for both socially-distanced and online gatherings.

Whatever your 'new normal' looks like, we'll help you to make the most of our flexible resources.


Inspire your planning and preparation

Need resources that you can just pick up and use? Or do you want something to spark your own ideas? ROOTS can support you, however much (or little) time or experience you have.
