Catechism Songs and Resources

Screen Shot 2021-02-27 at 10.36.50 PM
















Del Rey Church is excited to share free resources to encourage the church to memorize the New City Catechism. Our desire as a church is to encourage individuals and families to memorize the New City Catechism together as a part of discipleship.  To learn more about catechism at DRC please see Pastor Matt's blog post on the topic.

The DRC community has created resources to help us to delight in doctrine and stay engaged in the process. We are especially grateful to Landon Pietrini for creating helpful songs that coorespond with the full version of the New City Catechism.

Catechism activity books were created for the children of Del Rey Church with permission from the Gospel Coalition who holds the copyright to the New City Catechism. Each week in Kid's Church we practice a song and complete activities to help memorize the full version of the catechism answer. These materials can be freely distributed and reproduced for the edification of the church. These materials are not to be sold or hosted on other websites.

You will surprise yourself by how much you can memorize! Some catechism answers may seem quite long but we have found these resources are very helpful in aiding memorization. It is so encouraging to see even our youngest children reciting the full version of the catechism. Discuss and share this process with others so you can learn more strategies for memorizing. Let others know what is the most helpful for you. For more information on the New City Catechism, to purchase their materials, or to use their app please visit
