At this site you can view and download sets of bible story cards used by Rev. John Grindell in his children’s ministry. They were drawn by John and his artist friend, Mrs. Pam Thatcher. They are suitable for use in any children’s ministry but have been used extensively in school assemblies and church children’s meetings.

If you would like to see and use videos of John using the cards to tell stories, please visit this playlist of story videos, kindly hosted by Ridgeway Community Church on their YouTube channel:

  4. Dear John, I was first introduced to you at your last Holiday Club in Colwall, was v. impressed then. Took details of your web-site at the time. Now we are doing a series on Jesus’ miracles at Sunday School and I am doing the story of the blind man at the Pool of Shiloam at Sunday School tomorrow morning in same church and desperately needed some pictures to illustrate it, so I looked your site up, for the very first time – and could not believe my ‘luck’ – that you have exactly this story in such wonderful simple story-teller mode and technicolour! Thanks a million for your generosity! Jutta
