Thank you for your interest in these resources and welcome to REforming Christianity.
Reforming Christianity: A new resource for Key Stages 2-4
A new teaching resource for Religious Education for teachers
working with children and young people at Key Stages 2-4.
What does the Reformation mean to you? Ancient History? Something to do with Henry VIII?
The period of soul-searching and challenge to authority which swept Europe 500 years ago heralded radical and sweeping changes to religion, culture and politics.
What does this 500 year-old conflict mean to pupils and how can we bring the huge impact of the Reformation to life in the classroom?
2017 marks 500 years since Martin Luther, a devoted monk, publicly challenged the Church. His protest unleashed a chain of events that eventually broke apart a thousand years of Church tradition and heralded brutal sectarian conflict in Europe, as well as allowed many new ways to live a Christian life to flourish.
Supportive and classroom-ready, these lessons explore key historical and religious moments and movements, to support pupils’ deeper understanding of Christian belief and practice.
They cover questions such as:
How does change happen in religion?
Who can hear God’s words?
What does it take to stand up to authority?
