The Children's Corner

In the course of searching the Internet for resources for the PresbyKirk Library I have located some material for sharing the faith with children. This material includes Bible stories (text and audio) as well as colouring pages, quiz material, word searches and cross word puzzles, etc. related to the Bible stories. Some of this material may be useful to parents or to teachers in children's programs who are looking for supplementary material. I will add to these links as I encounter more material of this sort. Unfortunately, several of the sites that we had featured are no longer available. However, if you have some favourite sites that you are willing to share, please let us know.(R.J.B.)

Note to parents and congregations: The Web Committee of the Presbytery of Hamilton feels that we within the church must be prepared to take the initiative in teaching children how to be safe on the Internet and in encouraging parents to accept the responsibility to teach their children safe Internet practices. We are prepared to provide a speaker or to present a workshop on these and related topics to assist congregations in their ministry to children and their families. We are also prepared to consult with congregations and individuals concerning these issues. To inquire about a speaker or a workshop, or simply to discuss issues that are troubling you, we invite you to e-mail the Presbytery of Hamilton Web Committee that we may have an opportunity to respond.

New additions to our link lists are marked with a symbol that will remain in place for about 30 days. This will both assist regular users to spot new entries quickly and also allow those maintaining the site to see at a glance how much new material is being provided for users.

If you encounter links on this page which are not working or if you know of other sites that you think should be included on this page, please click on the e-mail icon below and let us know immediately.
