THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE
The Easter Story is the heart of the Christian Gospel:
The good news that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born at Bethlehem, grew to be a man who died on a cross for our sins, and was raised to life on the third day. It is a story in which there is darkness and death. But it is not, in the end, death and darkness that win. Instead, the resurrection of Jesus declares a message of light and life.
It is an urgent and vital story for our moment.
This year we have created two resources that help us to anchor ourselves afresh in the unchanging truth and wonder of the Easter Story.
wonder walks - all age outdoor lent & easter resource
Wonder Walks is a walking route map with a big difference – it doesn’t matter where you go!
Download one of our eight maps and take it with you when you go out for a walk. One each map you will find something to read from the Gospel of Mark, questions to think about, games to play, and ideas to pray about. You don’t need to prepare anything in advance, just download your map and head off for your weekly Wonder Walk!
Easter Reader - Digital Copies now Available
Our 2021 Easter reader is a collection of 40 short daily readings. Accompanying each reading is a brief reflection and prayer.
The reader follows three themes – “The Son”, “His Kingdom Comes” and “The Triumphant King”.
The reader reflections run from 8th March to 16th April
Our Easter reader is a helpful companion to bring you to the Bible over Lent and Easter, as you take time to reflect on the one who is the resurrection and the life.
You can distribute and read these passages and reflections with your church, small group, family and friends.
Copies of the booklet are out of stock, but fill in your details below and we will send you a digital copy.
online sunday club resources
These online events have been designed to be used with families on a video conferencing platform (we recommend Zoom).
They should last between 30-40 minutes and will help everyone think a bit more about the Hope of Easter
There are 5 sessions – simple in content and containing the following elements:
- Introduction – time to chat about what they have done, or will be doing at home, with their Bags of Discovery.
- Story – a story that follows Jesus’ life
- Activity – a game or creative opportunity to think more about the story
- Prayer – a chance to stop and pray before ending the session
These will work best if you adapt them to your own context. For example, in these ever changing days, it may be that these events could be adapted to be used in an outside space, with a small group of families, meeting within social distancing guidelines.
A Tale of Two Gardens
This video is available to download for churches to use in Sunday clubs and online services.
It tells the story of Jesus’ final hours in the Garden of Gethsemane before his death on the cross.
But the story doesn’t end there. We also witness the amazing events that took place in another garden – events that changed the course of history!
