Faith in Kids hosts a bake-along video featuring Martha Collison guiding families through baking gingerbread men & women. This realtime baking lesson is interspersed with short all age talks explaining the reason for the season. Our hope is that some families will deliver all the ingredients needed to their friends, with an invitation to join us for our all age bake-along experience.
Through the wonders of the internet, anyone can join us from anywhere in the world. No tickets. No charge. No hassle! Get a Zoom watch party going to connect friends when we can’t sit, mix and taste together!
Martha Collison was the youngest ever contestant on the Great British Bake Off. Her love of baking has stemmed, somewhat unusually, from her parent’s relaxed attitude to letting a small child loose in the kitchen! Noticing a gap in the shape of freshly baked cakes and biscuits, she decided to fill it, and hasn’t stopped since opening her first recipe book, aged 8.
Ed Drew is the Director of Faith in Kids, which exists to help parents and churches tell children about Jesus Christ. As a child he learnt to make Black Forest Gateau because it was his favourite. That was a long time ago. He has never been filmed baking before, but how badly can it go?
A journey through Luke’s Gospel
Meals with Jesus is a series of 9 lessons in Luke’s Gospel that explore who Jesus chose to sit and eat with. He could have dined with the VIPs of his day, but instead he often ate with the sinners, the outcasts, the broken and the needy. Through these Bible stories, children will discover more of Jesus' character as he showed care and compassion for the marginalised.
The lessons have been written to dovetail with the Meals with Jesus book of family Bible times so families can enjoy bite sized chunks at home while these key passages are taught at church:
Lunch with Levi (Luke 5:27-32)
Supper at Simon’s (Luke 7:36-50)
Big Picnic (Luke 9:10-17)
At Mary and Martha’s (Luke 10:38-42)
Best Seat in the House (Luke 14:1-11)
With Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10)
The Last Supper (Luke 22:14-20)
On the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24: 13-35)
The Greatest Party Ever (Luke 14:15-24)
The lesson plans are broken into separate teaching materials for 3-5s, 5-7s, 8-11s and mixed age groups, and include worksheets and handouts for parents to help start the conversation at home.
