Jesus Out of the box

Jesus Out of the Box is an immersive and fun way for churches to explore surprising stories from the life of Jesus, with their local schools..

What is it?

Jesus Out of the Box is an interactive resource which seeks to ‘unpack’ the person of Jesus by focussing on 5 surprising stories from his life. There is plenty of space to wonder together, ‘press pause’ and reflect on these stories in a creative way. It is aimed at young people in Years 5-8.

What are people saying about Jesus Out of the Box?

Jesus definitely comes ‘Out of the Box’ in a way that makes him real, and in a way which intrigues you to know more about him.


The user guide made it easy to lead and the tactile story objects brought it to life for the young people.

Church Worker

A fantastic opportunity to reflect on Jesus, challenging their idealistic thoughts on who Jesus was.

Year 6 Teacher

An amazing new way to learn about Jesus, with stories we hadn’t heard before.

Year 6 pupil

The press pause box made me think about how I was living my life.

Year 6 pupil

Having time to consider the meaning of each story and how this might apply to their own lives is a valuable part of this resource.


How can we help?

We love to see churches serving their local schools through deepening relationships. Hosting a Jesus Out of the Box session is one of the ways churches can do this. We would love to hear from you if you would like any support in hosting Jesus Out of the Box in school, or in anything related to building a connection with your local school. We work mainly with churches in the Bristol region.

We welcome donations

All our Jesus Out of the Box resources, training and services are free! We welcome donations towards the cost of our work. A gift of £400 enables us to provide a group of churches (close to each other in Bristol) with a set of boxes to share. A gift of £70 enables us to support a church providing a set of ‘press pause’ resources for a class. Visit our online CAF Giving page.
