ACTIVITIES

Challenges for young or young at heart.


Sunday Service 4 October

In one of our Bible readings today it says

‘Wait for the Lord;
             be strong, and let your heart take courage;
             wait for the Lord!’


I would love you to think about when it is difficult to wait for something and how difficult it can be to be patient. The activity is to come up with a game or something else that will help you wait patiently.

You could draw it or write about it or even make it. Here are some ideas to get you going: What about Church top trumps, or a Lego challenge or countdown clock.  

Let your imaginations go wild! I very much look forward to seeing them later.


Sunday Service 27 September

Please have a conker or something else to remind you of nature that you can hold in your hand.

You may also like to have a pen and paper ready to take part in today’s service activity.


Sunday Service 6 September

Heart Lego Build Challenge - Thinking about loving other people, create a Lego model that would help us love people even when we might find it hard. It might be something to make us smile, or a fun friendship machine, or an automatic kindness booth….let your imagine go wild. I am so excited to see what you come up with.

us know by completing this request form, that way we can make sure we have enough. You can collect your

Sunday Service 14 June

The challenge this week is based around Psalm 100. Using any of the imagery seen in the psalm create a drawing, sculpture, lego build or facemask of a sheep thinking about what it means to be one of God's sheep. Or create a noise maker or find something to make a noise with (sorry parents!) or take some time to sit and reflect listing all the things you are grateful for.


Sunday Service 31 May

Please find attached a colouring sheet. There will also be other task options given at the start of the service for those who fancy doing something different.

Sunday Service 24 May

This week’s challenge is to make, paint or draw a place, person or situation that makes you feel safe. In our service we will be hearing about how Jesus prayed to God to keep safe the people that had become Jesus’ friends in this world and had begun to follow him. Jesus knew he was going to be leaving them to go back to God.

‘Heart’ Activity sheet


Sunday Service 17 May

The challenge today is to build and decorate paper boats (you can build as many as you like). We are using a metaphor that COVID-19 is a storm and everyone is in the same storm but we have different boats. How can we help our boats show the grace, hope, love and light of Jesus.

Children's Resources - Hope you have fun!


If you want to hear Rev. Becky read a brilliant story called ‘The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross’ you can watch it on YouTube.


Rev. Becky says ‘I thought I would let you into a secret, when ever I hear someone talk about Zoom (the BRILLIANT means by which we now connect online) I always think about what was one of Noah's favourite nursery rhymes :-) Here is it.....Warning, it will get stuck in your head!


Through Holme CofE academy Rev. Becky is sending resources out to children and their families.

You can find them here.
