Creative Ideas For Children's Worship Year C


by Sarah Lenton


Price: £24.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:November 2012

This is the follow-on to Creative Ideas for Children's Worship covering Years A and B of the Lectionary.  Based on the Sunday Gospels it also includes material for the major holy days.


There is also a CD ROM containing all the material in the book plus additional cartoons. Each Sunday has a script which sets the theme together with ideas for setting up the program for the session. There are prayers, Bible readings and interactive games and activities, followed by ideas for the children being 'back in church'.


Although having an Anglican/Roman Catholic profile, the material could be easily adapted for use in a Free Church context and offers some imaginative material for opening up the Gospels to children of all ages, throughout the year. Although it follows the lectionary, it could easily be used outside of a liturgical context.


For children's church leaders looking for ideas and activities this volume, together with the previous two would be very useful to have on the shelf.
