Welcome to the CSSU Web site
The CSSU produces resources for Sunday School teachers and Youth Leaders.
It also publishes magazines for children and young people and arranges an Annual Gathering for teachers and youth leaders.
Free to download
We have a wide range of materials for many different uses. Our intention is, wherever possible, to put everything online
so that anyone who wants to use it in a Sunday School or Youth Group can do so.
Please feel free to download lessons for your own use (but observe the copyright statement).
Printed books and magazines (sorry, for Christadelphians only)
We also produce printed copies of everything, but we're not a commercial organisation and we aren't able
to cope with the workload of providing books to the whole world.
If you are a Christadelphian you can order printed books from this site. Click here for details.
We are sorry that we can't supply everyone who would like to order printed books from us, but reluctantly we have had to admit that we couldn't cope with all the requests we were getting. If you're interested in the Bible and would like to know more about God's Word, click here.
Welcome back! So what's new?
All our lessons online!
The CSSU Committee has been working since 2009 to make all the lessons in our syllabus available free of charge on our web site, and that process is at last complete. There are 553 lessons online, each with notes for teachers and young people.
If you live in the UK you will know that for several years there have been various systems set up to try to ensure that people known to be unsuitable for working with children or vulnerable adults are not able to do so. Over that time, in England & Wales and in Scotland, the CSSU has acted as an umbrella body enabling applications for Disclosures to be submitted.
From June 17 2013 two changes came into effect in England and Wales:
There is in general no legal requirement for Sunday School teachers and youth leaders to have Disclosure checks, though many ecclesias and camps have decided that it the wisest course, and others have found that in practice it becomes necessary to carry out checks. There is more information here.

62 plays online!
We've had a Play Library for years, but now we've revamped the index and we're putting the plays online in Word format. You can download them and adapt them (if necessary) to your needs. Click here for more details.
Don't forget ...
We have some brilliant books that are suitable for giving to children and young people as gifts and prizes.
