Families Worship Resources

Doing Church Differently

Church at Home - Family Worship

The resources on this page are aimed at helping families with primary school children to worship together.
To help you keep to the routine of Sunday church new resources will be posted each week in time for Sunday morning.
 

These activities are designed for a family to do together.

The Sunday morning groups for children and young people
will restart on 5th September so this is the last time this page will be updated

The files from previous weeks can be found at the bottom of the page

Why? Why go to church?

What does it do for you?

OPENING WORSHIP

Reading

We open our worship with a reading, Hebrews 10:23-26

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 
24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 
25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do,
but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”

Song
If you don’t know the words, or you don’t want to sing, then worshipping God using your body, like in an action song, is a great way to praise the Lord.

EXPLORING THE BIBLE

All Age Talk
On 5th September we welcome the children and young people back into church. After 18months of not getting up on a Sunday morning and going to church it may be difficult to think of ‘going to church’ as important. That’s why, this week, I look at the question, ‘Why go to church?’

The link for the All Age Talk is https://youtu.be/wnMltF8yh8I

Points for Discussion

  1. How do you feel about going back to church?
  2. Why should we go to church?
  3. What do you enjoy about church?

 

PRAYER ACTIVITY

Connect
Hebrews 10:25 says, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another“

Going to church is an important part of being a Christian. Christian friends help us to be strong when other people encourage us to do something we know is wrong. Being a Christian, a child of God means we are part of God’s family. When we ask God to forgive us and show us the way to live for him we are ‘saved’, we get eternal life, that means we go to heaven when we die. The best thing you can do for your school friends is to invite them to church, so they also have a chance of eternal life.

Next Sunday (5th September) we are starting CONNECT. CONNECT is the new name for the kid’s group that meets on Sunday mornings, it starts in the back hall at 10.30am.

Why not invite a friend to CONNECT.

  1. Think of a friend who doesn’t go to church on a Sunday morning.
  2. Make them an invitation. Here are the details you need to know about CONNECT.
  3. When you have finished your invitation, pray for your friend and pray for yourself. Going to back to church or starting at a church is a big step in your journey with God.

    Father God,
    Thank you that you love us and want us to have eternal life so we can live with you in heaven after we die.
    I want to know you more and I want to be strong in my faith when things tempt me away from you.
    Give me the confidence to go to church and the courage to invite my friend.
    Thank you for my friends, for the friends I have and the friends I will make at church.
    I pray for my friends and how they respond to my invitation.
    It would be so good for my friends to know you too.
    Amen.

 

Task for the week
Deliver your invitation to your friend. Before you go, remember to pray for your friend and what they do about your invitation. And most of all, remember to get up on Sunday and come to CONNECT – I’m looking forward to seeing you all at church. 😊

 

Prayer Colouring
Print off the colouring.pdf. As you colour, read the words and think about what they mean to you.

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works
(Hebrews 10:24)

 

CLOSING WORSHIP

“Well, my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you.”
(1 Corinthians 14:26)
