Welcome to Premier NexGen Pro, your hub for all things related to working with children and young people in church or organisational settings. We understand the unique challenges and rewards that come with this responsibility, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

June 2024 resources are now ready to use. 

With our resources we provide material for children of infant, primary and secondary school age, which you can use as is, or adapt for your group.  We work to a three year curriculum and you can see the topics for future months in this school year here. Alternatively you can simply browse the topics and choose the ones you fancy.

In NexGen Pro we hope you benefit from expert advice, shared experiences, and the latest news within the sector. There are even tailored devotionals for your personal spiritual growth.
