The Chronicles of Paki Series Two


Did you enjoy the first series of The Chronicles of Paki books? Well, GREAT news! The second series has just been published and it is packed full of wonderful stories to share with your church, family and community. 

Scripture Union has written another curriculum series to go with these books, suitable for:
· Sunday Schools
· Afterschool programmes
· Holiday programmes

The programme is designed for 5—12 year olds, and it comes in five downloadable booklets that are free and easy to use.  They are packed with great ideas to get your tamariki (children) excited about ‘The Chronicles of Paki’ and discover the stories for themselves.  They will help you to dig deeper into how God has been at work in Aotearoa, New Zealand right from the very beginning.

Our programme for Series One focused on the use of stations as a way to allow children to
explore the stories. You can download it for free from our website.

This year we have built this programme around research conducted
by David Csinos, a Canadian theologian. We love his approach, and it describes well the
ways in which children experience and know God. You can read the whole story in his book:
Children’s Ministry that Fits’. 

During a six-month research project that involved interviewing children about their spiritual lives,
Csinos discovered four distinct yet overlapping ways for children to connect with 

God. He called these four ways of knowing God, spiritual styles. This curriculum is 
based on the four spiritual styles: WORD, EMOTION, SYMBOL and ACTION.
Each programme provides a focus on one of these styles to enable children and adults to think

through and experience which styles they find fit best with their way of connecting with God. 


Before you start:

We recommend you start with the Building Blocks document. This gives all the background to the programme, how and why it was written, and some practical tips to get the most out of the material. 


We are offering this material for FREE because we see these stories as precious taonga (treasure) to be shared. If you would like to donate to Scripture Union NZ to help us cover our costs that would be much appreciated! Click here for more info: www.sunz.org.nz
