A very warm welcome to the Aslan website!
The information and resources on this site are freely available for anyone interested in providing an alternative Sunday School experience for 5-19 year olds with special needs.
At Tonbridge Baptist Church, we have been running an Aslan group since 2013 and I love being part of this ministry. My prayer is that many other similar groups will be set up so that whole families can benefit from belonging to churches that offer opportunities for each member to grow in their understanding of the love of God and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
All the resources were added with group sessions in mind, but since the introduction of social distancing in March 2020, I have added a new section, ‘Aslan at Home’. This works well for anyone wanting Bible teaching and activities to do at home, but would work equally well in a church setting if the group was small. Read more about it here.
I would love to know if you find these resources useful. Do leave feedback if you have time.
A model for children who thrive on an alternative church experience.
Tried and Tested
All the resources on this website have been tried, tested and developed for a group of varying abilities over a 6-year period.
These resources are completely free. Please download, print and adapt as you wish!
If you click on the Resources page you’ll find all the lesson content, information on running a session, an explanation of the different levels of ability catered for, and a 3-year plan. You can follow the plan systematically or just dip into anything that appeals!
For us, having Aslan has made the difference between us being able to come to church or not. It means our other children can come and enjoy their groups. It means that we can sit in the service instead of having to stand outside (literally outside the building) with Joshua as we used to do […]
Here’s our blog with some extra information which could be helpful and which I will keep adding to. There’s also a bit more about me and the background story of how Aslan came about which you might find interesting!
