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

Craft
For the communal craft we suggest making a poster based on the Ascension picture provided. Write on it "I will be with till the end of the world". Have some figure shapes ready for the children to fill in their faces and colour in their clothes. These can then be stuck onto the poster - Download

For cooking we suggest making an Ascension cake together. Have some green, blue and white coloured icing and a fairly large sponge cake. Use the green for the ground, blue for the sky and white for the clouds. Feel free to eat it for tea.

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. It would also be great to add some Christmas treats such as Mince pies, Christmas Cake, Chocolate Logs etc.

The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.
