The Church

Mission Cyprus

8-11 year olds, All-age
Paul's first missionary journey was the island of Cyprus. It was the scene of conversions and a dramatic confrontation as the gospel took root. This outline explores the story with ideas to use for a small group or within an all-age celebration.

Mission Malta

8-11 year olds, All-age
Paul never planned to evangelise Malta. He was there because of a storm at sea and a series of bad decisions by others; however this setback turned into an opportunity, because the story of Jesus was proclaimed on this Mediterranean Island.

We all have gifts

All-age
The church is the people of God, filled with the Spirit, following the way of Jesus and working together for God where they are. Each person has a gift and ministry in this church. This all-age outline draws on Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4.

Power from on high

8-11 year olds, All-age
Pentecost is the next festival after Easter but it often gets overlooked. Just as God breathed into Adam at creation, we need the breath of God's Spirit to bring us to new life in Christ. This is a reflective story suitable for an all-age service.

Travels in Greece - Mission Philippi

8-11 year olds, All-age
Paul's missionary journeys established Christian churches all around the eastern Mediterranean. This session explores how the first Christian church in Europe was established in Philippi, with a focus on praying for guidance.

The story of St Boniface

All-age
St Boniface was one of England's great missionary pioneers from the early days of Christianity in these isles. We don't often focus on Christian heroes with our children or even in our Sunday congregations; these stories inspire us to be pioneers for God.

Saints alive

All-ageAll-Age service
Every single person in the Christian family is important and gifted, including those who aren't the ones 'up front' but who go about their ministry quietly within church or publicly in their day-to-day lives outside Sunday.
