Abstract

This paper documents a systematic analysis of the online materials produced by UK churches for children’s faith nurture in response to the closure of physical “Sunday Schools” during the Covid-19 pandemic. A theoretical underpinning guided the development of a framework to examine the discipleship tools and to uncover examples of good practice which could inform children’s online discipleship globally. Tentative conclusions highlight how faith nurture of this nature may be refined and enhanced, and emphasises the significance of positive relationships to supplement these tools.
