We talked about following Jesus today and trying to walk in his footsteps.
We coloured the footsteps while we listened to Heather and Fran, and then we laid them all out at the front of the church and showed the people how to use them.
SALT & LIGHT
We thought about Salt and Light today, how they both make things better.
Like when you put salt on food and it brings out the taste, and sunlight brings out the colours in nature.
Just imagine if we were like salt and light and everything we touched would be better – that is exactly what Jesus said we should try to be!
15 December Nativity play
2nd Sunday of Advent
Thinking about hoping and waiting which is what we do in Advent, we thought of making lists of wishes – and then we thought about making lists of PRESENTS that we could give to Jesus. Here are some of them.
We lit another candle today as it’s the Second Sunday of Advent and we’re now half-way to Christmas. There’s an Advent story at the bottom of the page. Jump to it by clicking the orange button above.
On 1 December we are beginning our journey towards Christmas. We call this time ADVENT, a word from Latin meaning ‘coming’ and we call it so because it is a good name for the time to Christmas which is when we celebrate Jesus’ coming into the world.
1 December is Advent Sunday, when we will have Christingle in the afternoon. Christingle is also the start date of the Posada and we hope you will get a chance to have the figures of Mary, Joseph and the donkey in your house for one night!
Today was Pentecost and we made crowns of flames to go with the story.
We had lots of them and they weren’t all the same, but only Lucy stayed long enough to model one for the website – we believe there may have been cake waiting somewhere…
In our All Together Sunday service today we heard about UNITY. The prayer chain in the picture was made by putting many strips together into one piece, and the loops had names on them of all the people in the church.
But the funniest bit was when Teresa tried to get the duvet into its cover by herself. It was to show how you cannot do everything on your own – not even being a Christian.
22 April 2019
Today we are starting our Behind the Organ page all over again, because it’s EASTER, and Easter is when all things are made new :)!
We had our Easter Workshop today. We did lots of different activities.
We made an Easter Garden with real flowers
And then we had loads of craft
And also Bible story telling about Easter in between
And a pretty good party at the end!
We’re now in the season of Lent.
Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, and in Sunday Club we talked about how we could prepare ourselves for that big Feast.
One thing you’d have to do is to remember that we are in Lent, and the picture helps with that.
It is a bit similar to an Advent calendar: you can cross off the days to Easter. And it also shows you what we specially remember on some of the days, especially in the last 7 days called Holy Week.
That’s about remembering to prepare. But what will you do to prepare?
One suggestion is to pray every day.
It doesn’t have to be a big prayer; you could just make it a ‘thank you’ to God for something good that happened that day, or for a difficulty that has gone away.
It doesn’t have to be a different prayer every day either.
But as you practise praying, you’ll find that there are lots of things you want to talk to God about – just try it and see!
