For churches : the Resourcing Festivals series
The Resourcing series is a range of all-age worship and activity materials. Many churches are looking for practical, imaginative ideas to engage everyone aged from 0 – 90 in worship. These resources offers ideas for talks, prayers, confessions and much more, for all the seasons of the church year. They all work within a Common Worship framework, but can be adapted for almost any situation. Each pack (except Pentecost) includes an outline for an activity morning. Service ideas can be adapted for use in Eucharistic and non-Eucharistic services. The packs are incredibly good value at £5.00 each.
Resourcing Easter £5.00
The season from Lent through Easter is demanding, and it’s not always easy to see how to engage children and families. This pack includes worship ideas for Lent, Mothering Sunday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday. It also includes an activity morning for Good Friday.
Resourcing Pentecost £5.00
Pentecost is both a festival and a season. This resource offers all-age services for Pentecost, Trinity and Father’s Day together with a series of worship outlines to accompany Experience Pentecost, which draws on the story of the growing church. These include ideas for celebrating the world church as well as thinking about the work of the Holy Spirit.
