Across October new, FREE intergenerational lectionary-based resources will be provided for each week. Suitable for use whether you are following the lectionary or not, these resources from the VCCE will include intergenerational music, prayer and Bible engagement ideas. These ideas may be used wherever liturgically appropriate in a service, including as part of an Early Word/ Children’s Talk time.

As always, your feedback on these resources will be gratefully received. Please e-mail your comments to chris.barnett@ctm.uca.edu.au.

Resources for a new school year

Aaaand we’re back! September is here. Groups are starting. It’s all kicking off. You may well have all your planning sorted for the next 12 months, or maybe you’re having a bit of a panic about what on earth you’re going to do when those children, families and young people pour back through the door.

 

Well, fear not. We’ve had a bit of a think and a hunt and compiled a list of a few resources you might want on your radar to make your life a bit easier.

 

Got others you think are great? Leave us a link to them in the comments section!

 

General resources for the coming year:

 

Looking forward to later in the term:

Thy Kingdom Come – Pentecost 2016

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited Christians across the country to pray for mission and evangelism in the nine days leading up to Pentecost Sunday (15th May).

This time of prayer will culminate in six ‘Beacon Events’ around the country over Pentecost weekend, where people will pray for the renewal of the Church by the Holy Spirit and greater confidence to share the Gospel.

One of the national Beacon Events will take place at Winchester Cathedral.

There is an unashamed focus amongst this on ‘younger people’. So Youth and Children’s Leaders, you are key!

We’d love to see all the youth leaders, young people, children’s leaders and children across the diocese linked into this event and the prayer around it. And here are two ways you can do just that:

 

Gather – Pentecost Beacon Event, 15th May, 7-9pm

On 15th May, 7-9pm, we will be gathering from across the diocese for a prayer concert in Winchester Cathedral. It will be led by Bishop David, and will feature sung worship with Matt Redman and prayer led by Carla Harding from 24-7 Prayer.

Why not bring a group of young people from your parish or Deanery?

To register for free tickets please click here. (Tickets are going fast – so book quickly with your group!)

 

Prayer – Deanery Prayer Initiatives

24/7 prayer events will be taking place in every deanery in the nine days leading up to Pentecost. The Curates across the Diocese will be taking the lead on these events, along with the Area Deans.

Hopefully they will be getting in touch to let you know how you and the young people and children you work with can link in. If not – why not get in contact with your Area Dean and see what’s going on and how you can get involved!
