Ancora from Scripture Union


GOAAvailableNow[1]You can help ensure children are engaging with the Bible in an innovative and richly immersive way…

  • If you’re a parent or grandparent, Auntie or Uncle, why not share Guardians of Ancora with the children in your family and get them engaging with the Bible in this new and innovative way?
  • If you work with children in churches or schools you could share Guardians of Ancora with the children in your groups and help to bring the Bible to life for them.
  • If you’re helping to run any mission work this summer, perhaps you could introduce the children to the game or even incorporate it into your programme?
  • If you don’t have your own children or you’re not involved in children’s work yourself, perhaps there are others you could share Guardians of Ancora with who would love to have a resource like this to use.
  • And whatever your situation, why not share the game with your church so that as many children as possible can discover the incredible adventures of the Bible?

To download Ancora, go to the Scripture Union Website:


Stage-Fright is a theatre company which explores the thin places between heaven and earth, life and art, faith and theatre.

Their latest piece is called ‘EPICS in moderation’
Stage-Fright presents a series of happenings that changed the world. Witness the epic heroes of ordinary life standing awkwardly beside the pompous demigods of history. A variety of vicissitudes boiled down into sweet sticky moments.

For those of you that were able to attend one of the ‘Good News for Young People’ days or evenings, we hope you found it enjoyable and useful in the mission to reach out and engage through your Church with young people. For those that were not able to attend, you may be interested in viewing a recording of one of the days which was kindly recorded by Bill Blakey in St John the Evangelist, Carterton. This recording, presentation and booklet ‘101 (or more) Ideas for developing church and school communities’ are now available on our website via the following link:
