A Lent resource for churches to give to students, seniors, households and families to reduce isolation and offer hope in these challenging times.
Please note - these are being posted out in February.
The pack invites them to join a journey through Lent with opportunities to build connections with Jesus, others and their local church. The materials include a wide range of activity suggestions so there should be something for almost everyone to engage with in their own home.
Contents: A3 poster – a map from Shrove Tuesday to Easter Sunday; hundreds of stickers to use with the map and journal; A5 spiral bound stand-up diary/journal with pull out activity pages; a booklet of seasonal and fun recipes.
Each day take a step towards Easter – mark your way on the map, use the creative diary/journal and dip into the activity suggestions: cook * make * give * pray * connect * think * do * discover * share * challenge * dream * play * smile * thank
Diary includes: Monday to Saturday read a real life story of someone walking the way of Jesus, reflect on a Bible verse, and use the space provided to record something of your day. Sunday pause to engage with a story about Jesus, a reflection and some suggested ways to pray, with space to record your responses.
Holy Week create a garden and follow the final few days leading up to the cross and tomb. Easter Sunday celebrate new life: faith hope and love restored.
The Sundays use the same readings as ‘Holy Habits: following Jesus' by Andrew Roberts (BRF)’.
Churches may wish to include other material so the envelopes are supplied unsealed in bulk orders.
