About A Day With the King

A Day With the King is a children’s program produced by 3ABN Australia Inc. It has been developed to teach children about the Sabbath and to lead them through the book of Genesis in season one, and the rest of the Old Testament in later seasons. Hosted by Natalee McLean (Aunty Nat) and Cecily Harker (Aunty Cecily) in seasons 1 to 4, and Daniel Vokurka (Uncle Daniel) and Leah Hodge (Aunty Leah) in season 5, this program targets six to twelve year olds, though people of any age will enjoy it. It includes segments such as singing with Pr Rick Ferret and Pr Braedan Entermann, and a story time with Dr John Hammond. There is also a Bible Study time where the children can learn more about God. Each segment is detailed below.

Singing with Pr Rick & Pr Braedan

Singing imagePr Rick Ferret (seasons 1 to 3) and Pr Braedan Entermann (seasons 4 and 5) lead us in singing each week. You can join in as we sing the songs because the words are on the screen. The songs include old favourites and less known songs, which the children can learn, such as:

  • God is My Best Friend
  • Remember the Sabbath
  • Books of the Bible

Rick Ferret is a retired theology lecturer, Cooranbong, NSW, Australia.

Stories with Dr John

  • Tiglath Pileser
  • The Conleys
  • The Big Bible

  • and more!
