Sunday school lessons in Chinese are more readily available online due to church closures during COVID19.
If you’re simply looking for ways to expose your children to Mandarin/Cantonese Sunday school lessons, here’s a list I put together for you.
Not only is this a great resource for kids, it’s also a great resource for parents who are wanting to pick up some Chinese Christian terms.
江子翠行道會/Change Life Church Sunday School
Age Group: Preschool-Grade School
Denomination: Church of Christ
Language: Mandarin with traditional Chinese subtitles
This is our favorite Sunday school, the one my daughter (4.5 YO) mainly watched during COVID19 lockdown.
This church in Taiwan is part of the Church of Christ denomination.
I like the fact that these lessons are high quality and engaging for children.
The Sunday school begins with worship which includes some Stream of Praise songs with Chinese subtitles and other older children’s worship songs. Then the children’s ministers leads kids in a fun rap, declaring Biblical truths of who they are in Christ. Next they tell a Bible story with some acting and end with prayer.

真光教會/True Light Church Sunday School (Mandarin)
Age Group: Grade School
Language: Mandarin with traditional Chinese, zhuyin and pinyin
This Sunday school’s worship includes Stream of Praise songs in addition to others with lyrics on the screen in traditional Chinese, zhuyin and some pinyin. The youth pastors/ministers share a short message and lead kids in prayer and verse memorization.
The fun thing about this Sunday School lesson is that they teach verse memorization through rap.
圣经工程/Bible Project – Mandarin Chinese
Age Group: Grade schoolers – adults
Language: Mandarin with simplified Chinese subtitles
The Bible Project is a ministry based in America that creates high quality cartoons teaching the books and themes of the Bible.
They have translated their resources into Chinese with simplified Chinese subtitles.
This is a great resource for families looking to do Bible studies in Chinese or parents who are looking to grow in teaching the Bible to their children in Chinese.
The great thing about YouTube is that you can slow down the speed of the video if they’re speaking too quickly.
611兒童教會崇拜/611 Bread of Life Hong Kong Sunday School
Age Group: Grade schoolers and up
Language: Mix of Mandarin + Cantonese
Fun engaging service with worship, games, Bible stories and prayer.
雙連教會/Taiwanese Presbyterian Church Sunday School
Age Group: Grade schoolers and up
Language: Mix of Mandarin + Taiwanese Hokkien
Their lessons tend to be longer and more appropriate for older kids. Worship uses some Stream of Praise songs.
