Lost Sheep aims to provide high quality affordable resources. There are significant costs involved in creating these materials, and our only funding comes through sales. We do not solicit or receive donations from any other sources. In short, we rely on the integrity of those who buy our materials to fund the production of more stories, teaching resources and activities. If you value Lost Sheep – you know what to do!
Our resources are intended for use in both public and private settings by the person or group who subscribes to or buys our materials. We hope that you will use the resources widely in your church and in the community, but don’t just pass our materials on to others for their ministry. Instead, direct your friends to our website. If you’re not sure what is allowed, please email us.
Materials may be printed off for home, church, school or group use. School subscribers may upload the files to the internal school computer system. The digital storytelling kit and other images are intended for use in public settings. If you want to use a Lost Sheep story as the script for a school or church play, that is fine. We ask that the church or school owns a digital Story Telling Kit copy of the story. Please send us some pictures so we can enjoy it too!
We are very happy for the stories and resources to be used as part of your online gathering and events. It is OK for these to be recorded and shared within your church community and to be on your multimedia pages. If you're telling a story then please use the digital Story Telling Kit, so that you can display the copyright slide at the end.
If you're a church or school with multiple campuses or locations, we'd ask you to purchase a separate membership for each campus where you want to use our materials. When you're working out the correct membership size, count the number of people for that campus.
You are not permitted to email, give or sell files to other people or uploading the files or links to your Facebook page or website with out contacting us. Selling or incorporating Lost Sheep materials into any product for sale (whether they are in a digital or printed format) requires prior written permission from Lost Sheep. Products purchased as part of a Home Membership are not to be used in a public setting.
The Cecil at Home flip books including the videos, stories and materials are not to be used in Church, Kids Group, School or any public settings. We have created “Cecil at Home” exclusively for Parents & Carers because Parents are the number one God entrusted spiritual teachers of their kids. The main job of churches, schools and yellow sheep is to offer parents some resources then step back a bit giving them space to form the faith of their family.
This applies whether you receive “Cecil at Home” as part of a church, group, denomination or organisation bulk purchase or a Home Membership.
If you would like to include Lost Sheep materials as part of something you are producing please contact us. We also love to hear from, and regularly give materials to, our brothers and sisters around the world who can’t afford to purchase resources. We love to hear from friends in ministry and see how we can work together.
