An Easter weekend resource for families
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.

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.
