Followers Educational Program (3-18)
Followers is an Archdiocesan educational program for 3 to 18 year olds, freely available for all to use. There are 480 lesson plans, fully resourced, available on this site. It is designed for use in Orthodox parishes but the material may still be useful for others. It is anticipated that parishes will pick and choose lessons for banded ages (3-6; 7-10; 11-14; 15-18) in line with the age profiles of the children involved. Lessons are provided to a specific age only as a guide to where that lesson might be placed within the band. Flexibility of use is the key. Make your own choices please in the light of your own circumstances. Please read the FAQ’s page for more information.
