Bible Chat Mat

Explore the Bible with the Bible Chat Mat

Bible Chat Mat allows children, young people, and adults to read the Bible and have conversation together, whether around a meal table, sitting on the sofa or wherever works best. This activity can be done as a household, friends together, home group, Sunday group or in a school club. The sheets can be coloured and doodled on, allowing you to respond to the Bible story in your own unique way.

Series 1 of our Bible Chat Mats are all themed as ‘Jesus the…’ and all 12 are free to download below. These help you to explore a range of New Testament stories.

Series 2 of our Bible Chat Mats is now available to purchase from our online shop for £20.00 as a downloadable pack. There are 19 Chat Mats themed around Christians Values. Each Bible Chat Mat links to a well-known Bible story. If you have access to a Lion Storyteller Bible, we recommend using that version, but any age appropriate Bible will work. The 19 Christian values are: Compassion, Courage, Creativity, Forgiveness, Friendship, Generosity, Hope, Humility, Justice, Koinonia, Peace, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility, Service, Thankfulness, Trust, Truthfulness and Wisdom.

If you are school looking to purchase the Bible Chat Mats, we hope that we have made this an affordable resource that you can use year on year. We ask that you purchase these as an individual school and that you don’t share freely with others in your Trust or similar, but rather ask them to purchase their own. If the price is a barrier to you purchasing this resource, please do get in touch.

We also have three seasonal Chat Mats for Easter, Harvest and Christmas and a Lord’s Prayer Bible Chat Mat which are all free to download.
