This week’s video for worship at home or streamed family worship is the story of Pentecost. You can find it here – please do share it to anyone who might find it useful.
I’ve also copied a Pentecost scavenger hunt I used when I was a children’s worker – we did it at church, but it could easily be done at home by a family, or in many homes over a Zoom Sunday School meetup!
Christ Church St. Lawrence, in Sydney, has some Pentecost reflections and activities that could easily be done at home, as does Flame Creative Kids.
Messy Church for Messy Times:
Our “Messy Church for Messy Times” activities are in full flow – we have Zoom cafes every day this week from 2 – 3 pm and you’re very welcome at any or all of the remaining ones. For the Zoom link, email me!
You can also use the video session we’ve put together, featuring prayers, activities, music, and a story. It’s led by Bishops, Archdeacons, their children, some Messy Church families from All Saints Clifton and Southill, and me.
We’re also having Twitter conversations about Messy Church – use the hashtag #MessyChurchAtHome and follow my Twitter feed on @stalbanscme
Keeping in Touch:
Church Print Hub has made downloadable prayer postcards saying “Loving God, Bless My Family Today.” You could send them to Messy Church or toddler group families to encourage them to pray for each other and remind them you’re praying for them. Or you could make them available to families to send to relatives they haven’t seen for a long time. You can order them in packs of 20 here.
