Navigate - exploring the Bible

Navigate is a resource for youth leaders to use with young people to help them to explore and engage with the Bible. 

The five interactive sessions, each with an easy to use session plan, contain discussions, quizzes, creative and reflective activities as well as 5 short animations following the animated character Bob as he asks questions about the Bible.

The many questions explored are such as

  • What is the Bible?
  • Why should I read it? 
  • How do I read it? 
  • Can I trust it? 
  • What difference does the Bible make?

Navigate is primarily aimed at 11-15 year olds, however the material can be adapted for use with younger (9-10 yrs) or older (16+ yrs) groups. It is most suited to those with limited knowledge of the Bible as it serves as a basic introduction.

The resource has been produced by the Methodist Church and the Bible Society.

Navigate contains five sessions plus an extra session. The PDF for each session contains all the information and resources you will need to run the session. There are cartoon animations to accompany each of the 5 sessions which can also be downloaded below. Some sessions also have extra resources available to download e.g. powerpoints. Please read the introduction to Navigate, which gives guidance and advice as to how best to use the resource.
