About Us

The Ten Must Know Bible Stories project began when St Columba’s Church in Aberdeen collaborated with 7 local schools to rethink how Christianity is taught as part of the RME curriculum. Combining their experience and expertise has resulted in a suite of resources which promote active and outdoor learning, embed RME across the curriculum and encourage children to discover Christian belief for themselves as they explore 10 Bible Stories.


On this website there are high quality, tried and tested resources to explore ten Bible stories at early first and second level. The resources are all free to download.

The resources are designed to:

give children an understanding of Christian beliefs.
involve children as active participants encouraging them to respectfully and thoughtfully discuss ‘big questions’ as they explore how faith and belief affect the world they live in.
encourage respectful but lively discussion helping children learn to reflect on, consider and evaluate new information before forming and expressing their own opinions.
engage children in a personal search for meaning and moral values whatever belief they hold
help teachers embed RME across the curriculum.

All the resources reflect the Scottish Government’s legislation and guidance on RME in school.

As well as providing resources the 10 Must Know Bible Stories Project offers training sessions for schools or chaplains. These training sessions will increase participants knowledge of a Bible story and increase participant confidence in helping children to explore the story.

“We became far more aware of the power of these stories to take us into other areas of the curriculum which made them more real to the lives of our pupils.”
