The Instructor has been the children’s magazine of the Free Church for over 100 years and recently celebrated its centenary. The current editor, Irene Howat, is a well-known writer of various Christian books and is extensively experienced in children’s work. The Instructor is aimed at children of primary school age and contains stories, quizzes, articles and pictures, and is full of life and colour.
Free is our magazine especially designed for teenagers. Edited by Chris Nicolson, an experienced journalist and mother of three, it features articles on the many issues facing adolescents, together with the questions that are often asked about how the Bible relates to the world we live in. It contains real life stories; news on youth events throughout the Church and beyond; a fun photo feature; articles on music and youth culture; book reviews; prayer topics; - and regular columns to challenge you and make you think.
Sunday schools play an important part in the life of every healthy congregation. In turn, each Sunday school depends upon the materials used to teach children Biblical truth, in language which they can understand and in an environment which they enjoy. The Free Church publishes Sunday school material, which has been carefully constructed by experienced children’s writers. They follow carefully thought-out plans to take children through Biblical themes each week, in an attempt to encourage them to get to know the Bible personally for themselves.
