FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

Prayer Resources and More

Making (more) room for Jesus in your own home

Make time for each other,

never let work at home become more important than spending time together.

Laugh often, tell jokes; Alexa tell us a joke…

Alexa is brilliant at finding jokes, songs, and musicals.

Share a funny family story that you remember.

Support one another and be thankful for each other.

Think back over the day at the things you are thankful for,

then say thanks to God. 

Messy Church is a way of being church for families and others. It is Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

Some examples of Children’s Liturgy ideas can be found on youtube.com/c/blessedsacramentexeter:   Click ‘playlist’ where you will see recent Sunday’s Children’s Liturgies.  You will also see ‘GIFT’ (Growing in Faith Together) which is, too, a lovely family resource.

If you are on Facebook ‘Colour and Shape’ is another very good resource for looking at Children’s Liturgy ideas.

‘Family at Prayer Book’ and the leaflet for ‘prayer in times of an flu/illness’ are useful for parents and young adults.
