Doubting Thomas

John 20: 24-29

Apologies for the rather sporadic posting recently. With the Easter holidays things seemed to have gotten a lot more hectic, but here’s hoping things settle down again soon. For the moment however we bring you a lesson on Thomas as it highlights some interesting points not just about believing in Jesus but also in the Resurrection itself.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday

Because Easter is such a special day we aren’t going to use the normal format for lessons. Instead we are going to have the children stay in the main service, however we are aware that children can have short attention spans and so we have some worksheets available here to keep them occupied. Older children should be able to follow the service. However we also have plenty to keep you busy over the Easter period…

Palm Sunday

Palm  Sunday
Matthew 21: 1-11. Mark 11: 1-11. Luke 19: 28-44. John 12: 12-19

Better late than never O.o Palm Sunday is upon us! Which means Easter is almost here! But before we start getting too excited about the joys of Easter, we have Holy week to prepare us. While Holy Week is massively important to the build up to Easter not all churches host child friendly services for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday or perhaps you will not be hosting Sunday School during these days. So we are focusing purely on Palm Sunday for the moment and will probably upload some activities for Holy Week services in the week.

Saint David’s Day

Saint David’s Day

Well…this was set to post last week, before Saint David’s day rather than after so pffffffffft. But I’ll put it up anyway for next year’s benefit 🙂

It’s Saint David’s Day on Friday! Yaaaaaaaaay!!! For those of you outside of Wales this will mean very little, for those inside Wales enjoy it! Certainly the kids will as schools across Wales cancel lessons in favour of a day of Welshness, though imagine my horror to learn that girls are no longer forced to wear the traditional Welsh dress. In my day (and at twenty four I am far too young to be saying that) wearing that terribly scratchy petticoat and all those heavy woolen layers was part and parcel of the day!

The Lost Sheep

The Lost Sheep
Matthew 18:12-14. Luke 15:3-7. Ezekiel 34:11-16.

Apologies for the recent technical difficulties that have left us unable to update the blog properly for some time. Thankfully all that is sorted now and we continue!

The parable of the Lost Sheep is one of the simplest stories to illustrate God’s love to us and show Jesus as the ‘Good Shepherd’.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday
Daniel 9:3-5 Ezra 8:23

Apologies for the lack of lesson last week. Between technical difficulties and illness it has not been a good week at sundayschoolsos headquarters. Thankfully the illness has abated and the technical difficulties are fixed enough for us to resume normal service, albeit a little late, in time for Lent.
