There is a national expectation for every pupil to be taught Christianity.
However, teachers face a real and serious challenge as RE is often under-funded and under-resourced. This can result in children leaving school with large gaps in their understanding of Christianity.
You can support schools in meeting this challenge by providing inspiring resources that enable pupils to discover and engage with the Christian faith.
Lift the Lid is an exciting and innovative Christian project that designs and produces relevant, constructive and engaging educational resources to enhance the teaching of Christianity in Primary and Secondary schools. We encourage pupils to take a closer look at the teachings of the Bible, the Church and how the Christian faith impacts lives today.
“When I take the Lift the Lid boxes out to local schools, they are received with enthusiasm by teachers. One school told me they used the resources in all sorts of lessons, not just R.E.”
– Scarborough Christian Fellowship
By gifting our boxes, you can bless and support your local schools and empower teachers to create lessons that help pupils develop open, sensitive and reflective approaches to Christianity and facilitate exciting and inspiring lessons.
Better relationships with your local schools .
We want to equip you to initiate and strengthen your relationships with local schools and connect with your community.
An exciting ministry for your congregation.
Many churches are unable to deliver a full programme of Children’s Work in their local area. With Lift the Lid, your church can reach out and engage the young people in your community. It doesn’t matter about your current resources or capacity, you can grow an exciting ministry.
Children with a deeper understanding.
As teachers are resourced, they can confidently deliver engaging, bible-based lessons about Christianity. This can help pupils to receive a deeper, more accurate understanding of the Christian faith from a young age and go on to build a foundation for further learning.
