SAT-7 BEDTIME STORIES – DVD RESOURCE
A resource for churches and Christians working with Arabic-speaking families and refugees in the UK.
SUPPORTING AND EDUCATING DISPLACED CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
Christians in the UK have always been at the forefront of offering support to refugees. Continued instability across the Middle East has seen thousands of men, women and children, crying out for peace and for a home, as they’ve been displaced across Europe. As Arabic-speaking families have come to the UK, the Church’s tradition of working together to offer welcome and care has continued.
SAT-7’s Bedtime Stories DVD has been produced for you to give as a friendship gift to Arabic-speaking children and families. We pray that it will add value to the many ministries of friendship and support that are flourishing across the UK.
What to expect
The DVD has eight programmes:
Six episodes of Bedtime Story, a favourite of our young viewers. A presenter reads stories that give encouragement and teaching to the children. Bedtime Story is suitable for children aged 2-8 years old. Episodes are 18 minutes.
Two episodes of My School, an education programme launched by SAT-7 in 2016, especially for displaced and refugee children. Each episode is 50 minutes. Suitable for children aged 3-10.
We will be encouraging churches that are welcoming Syrian refugee families through Community Sponsorship to present SAT-7's Bedtime Stories to their families as a friendly gift. Most families arrive in the UK with young children who may have been traumatised by experiences of war and persecution. We believe SAT-7's latest DVD resource will help educate them, especially in English, enabling them to settle successfully into a new country and culture."

Adam and the Flute
Adam gets upset when his Father gives him a flute when he really wants to play piano, but learns that it is better start with small things and progress to bigger things.
The painter and his colours
The black paint was jealous of the bright paints when he wasn’t used by the painter. But he didn’t realise that the painter was keeping the black paint for last to make the painting perfect.
Adam and the Lamp
When we compare ourselves to others we may think we are not strong enough, big enough or sharp enough, but Adam learns that we are all different for a purpose.
Adam and Time
Adam thinks he can put off doing boring things and only do what he enjoys. But in a dream he learns that you can soon run out of time.
The Doll Maker
The dolls try and do things that get them in a mess, but because the Doll Maker loves them so much he fixes them so they are even better than before.
Grandpa and flowers
Adam’s Grandfather explains that every flower in a beautiful garden has its own beauty just like people. We might be different but we complete and love each other.
