YEAR A: After Epiphany 4: Ideas to help 3’s and under relate to this weeks RCL readings

Some congregations may be using the Candlemas readings this  week.

If possible check with the congregation you will be worshipping with. You will find ideas for Candelmas here

You don’t have to stop attending worship with your children just because the school term has begun. You can choose to worship together instead of attending Sunday school. Work out what is important to your family, is it shared worship or learning about Bible Stories?

If you continue to worship with your child you can find some ideas here as to where to sit and what to bring.

If you are a small congregation without a Child and Family Minister have an area available near the front for parents/guardians to worship with their children, and print off this information so that it is readily available or direct them to this site. Set up an area with books and toys in it that will enhance their spiritual experience. (Ie not just toys for “keeping them quiet”).Spiritual Delights or Toy Box tat! andMake the books appealing

If you would like these ideas as a PDF file sent to you each week, please contact me.

Psalm 15: Truth telling

If you want to walk tall in the ways of the Lord
you have to hold on to what matters the most.
The truth is the truth, there’s no getting round it,
the truth can’t be twisted, invented or fudged.
If you want to be trusted, admired and respected
then do what is right and say what is true.
