Resources for Sunday 3rd May 2020

We have compiled some of the amazing resources circulating for this Sunday’s service.  These have been shared by the Children’s Ministry Network, many of whom are creating home friendly versions of their resources or collating ideas each week.  They are an amazing gift to the Church of Ireland as a whole and especially to our Children and Family Ministries.

Remember, it’s always best to pick 1 or 2 to suit your Sunday Club or Family.  You can always revisit others to reinforce the message during the week.

Seeds Children’s Ministry in Derry and Raphoe compile this brilliant one pager full of ideas for each week.  This Sunday Read, Watch, Do, Pray and Share all on the Story of Jesus the Good Shepherd: Sunday 3rd May 2020 – Jesus the Shepherd

Down and Dromore Children’s Ministry have been working hard to transform  their Diocesan Sunday Club Resource JIGSAW into a Jigsaw@Home Resource.  We found it impossible to choose our favourite.  This resource is called ‘Our Part in God’s Church’ JIGSAW Y2U9L1 Our Part in God’s Church but you can check out lots more ideas on their facebook or instagram page: @jigsawddyc

Sermons for Kids have some lovely ideas for chatting about the Bible Story and plenty of Activity Sheets:

Head to Roots on the Web for brilliant free resources that are lectionary based like this Activity Page: The Good Shepherd Activity Sheet 4A Roots For more ideas go to

And there are great things coming out of the Together@Home resources such as this lectionary based resource: TatH_-_03.05.2020_-_Lectionary_based_Resource (6) There’s lots more on their Facebook page if you want to explore for yourselves.

Finally, if you want to eat and pray together as a family, check out these chats and prayers around this week’s reading from Acts and prayers for the Church, all whilst making banana oat bars Read, Bake, Pray
