We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.

We suggest drawing pictures or making collages of different skills or talents on cards such as 'playing football', 'drawing', 'sewing', 'playing a musical instrument', etc. We suggest later that they be used in the closing prayers and then stuck onto a sheet for display.

We would also suggest offering coin rubbing. Place some coins under a sheet of thin paper and then using a soft pencil gently shade over the coins to produce an image. You could use a large sheet of paper and make this into a communal craft.

For cooking we would suggest obtaining some chocolate coins and decorating cup cakes with some icing and then pushing some coins into the bun to create a hoard.

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

I can do all things We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample

Nothing's too big, big, big for His power Nothing's too big, big, big for His power, JP 585
