Our colleagues in England & Wales have launched a free Bible app to encourage parents to share Bible stories with their children.

One in three British children aged eight to fifteen (35%) don’t know why we celebrate Good Friday, while for Easter Sunday it’s a similarly high one in four (24%). A quarter thinks the Golden Goose (26%) and the Hare and the Tortoise (28%) may feature in the Easter story.

The app is written by a children’s author and is his unique take on five Bible stories with some surprising elements to engage children. As well as the Easter story in two parts the App also features Adam & Eve, Jonah & the Whale and The Prodigal Son.

Find out more and download the app from the Bible Society of England & Wales.
