An array of resources to celebrate Easter
FREE BARABBAS - AN ESCAPE ROOM FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY - Gather the family for a 25-minute online adventure! Aimed at families with 8-12 year olds, but enough to keep toddlers and teens engaged. Enjoy this series of challenges that will have you laughing, problem-solving, and working together. No prior biblical knowledge needed, perfect for sharing with friends and neighbours. Team up with others via Zoom and embark on the journey together, or challenge another family to see who can complete the tasks the fastest.
WEEKEND OF WONDER -This resource aims to encourage families to experience and enjoy the good news of Easter - at home, outdoors and with others - and give them confidence that they can open the Bible together at home.
The activities and conversation starters are designed as a taster to help families see that it is possible to talk about faith as part of everyday life. Perhaps this will be a stepping stone to encourage them to try out more resources.
Churches could use this booklet as the basis for an Easter gift bag for families. The bag could include a copy of the booklet, ingredients for the pizza bread, a luggage label and wool, letters for the hunt and a chocolate egg with ‘He has risen! Luke 24:6’ attached. You could include your own Easter card, with details of the church’s Easter services, or stick your own Easter greeting onto the front cover of the booklet.
ZOOM EASTER SCRIPT: THERE IS HOPE - This script is a series of short scenes designed to be easily adapted for your setting. You could use adults, children or family groups. Make it your own, and have fun! Zoom backgrounds for each scene are included.
EASTER ASSEMBLY: HOT CROSS BUNS AND EASTER EGGS - This 10 minute assembly uses familiar Easter treats – hot cross buns and Easter eggs - to explain Jesus' death on the cross and his resurrection. Two eye witnesses will explain how these treats remind us of the truth about Easter.
AN EASTER TRAIL: HOMES OF HOPE - As the first buds and flowers are bursting through, this is the moment for an Easter trail in your community. Get families walking around their local streets, following the Easter story - the only source of certain hope.
EASTER BAKE ALONG - Real time baking with a sprinkling of the Easter story. Script download
