50 Praise, Pray And Play Sessions

Easy To Run All-Age Outlines For Use Throughout The Week

by Rona Orme


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:February 2015

Another excellent resource from Barnabas, each session has a fun activity that in turn forms the basis of the bible passage talk and prayers, the prayers themselves are experiential too, and if you have the time there are even more activities that can be done as reflection pieces. At the end of the day you can't fail to find a session in here that will work for you, that is fun and that is ultimately really easy to do.

The sessions cover the highlights of the church seasons, so we have lent, advent, easter, pentecost, christmas, trinity and more, as well as bible highlights like creation, fruits of the spirit, jesus, thanksgiving, prayer .. and finally a series of sessions on the senses.
All of these are literally so well put together you can do them straight from the book, or of course they work in such a way you can tailor your own sessions from them too.

On the whole this is an excellent addition to anyone's library of resources who is likely to have to do an all age (or Childrens/Youth) session and wants a service that is fun and engaging as well as being biblically rooted.
