SUNDAY SCHOOL IDEAS
HARVEST FESTIVAL DECORATIONS
We would love everyone to help make decorations for Church to celebrate Harvest Festival. The decorations can be done by children (and adults) of all ages and dropped off in the church in the lead up to Harvest. Unfortunately we can’t ask you to help put them up, however we hope you will enjoy looking at them either in person or via Zoom. Download the templates: Poppies HERE and Wheat HERE
Activity for Sunday 12 July 2020
Jesus tells the crowds a parable of seed being sown onto different sorts of ground. Later, he explains it to the disciples as an illustration of how different people respond to hearing the word of the kingdom.

Sea Sunday activity for Sunday 5 July 2020
Sea Sunday is a special opportunity for us to remember and say prayers for all of the brave men and women who go to work at sea to make sure we have all that we need. These brave men and women are called seafarers and they work in dangerous and lonely conditions, sometimes not seeing their families for months at a time. The Mission to Seafarers is here to support and care for seafarers all over the world.
Colouring sheets HERE
Please return your messages and colourful seafarers to this address:
The Mission to Seafarers, St Michael Paternoster Royal College Hill, London, EC4R 2RL UK
Christian Aid Week activity
Christian Aid week is all about helping. We would like your children to write their messages on the hands (see artwork attached) HERE
It can be a simple message such as 'help' or 'kindness', or a complex one such as “Together we could work to expose poverty throughout the world and to help to end it soon”.
Lazarus and the miracle of him being brought to life.
The children observed the plant Rose of Jericho (also called the resurrection Rose) which looked dead, but with a bit of water it was made alive again just within 3 hours.
We talked about Spring and how things in nature change with seasons, and as an example we planted Marigold seeds in the church garden, and we sang a song inspired by this lady: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7OVWVR_R9Q
We planted lots of seed for many children, so if anyone wanted to take away marigolds I will send a reminder in a few weeks when the plants are visible and ready for collection.
All the best, Iwona and the family
