We have gathered various resources for you to use over the summer period.
Children's Summer Resources
|Birds, birthdays and God||
These are two lovely activities you can try over summer to help your child begin to think about God’s Holy Spirit – the part of God that lives in our hearts today, filling us with God’s power and love.
Summer is bursting with the colour green. It’s a big contrast to the bare stillness of winter, when everything rests. Find out why green is a special colour in the church as well.
|Fruits that are special||Now is the time of year when there’s a lot of fresh fruit on the trees and in the shops. It tastes wonderful, is good for our health and colourful to look at. There’s another kind of ‘fruit’ that’s good for us too. Read on to find out more.|
|Outdoor Fun||Once the weather’s warm enough to be outside, there are so many more things that you can do together as a family – and it doesn’t matter how messy you get!|
|We're going on a journey!||
Day trips, visiting family or even going abroad all require some sort of travel. Whether it’s on foot, on a bike, in the car, on a bus, train, or plane, the journey itself can be an opportunity to see new things and ask for God’s blessing too.
|Days out and fun times||
Enjoying time and treats together is really important, whether that is doing ordinary things together like making and helping or going on a journey somewhere completely new. Being together, using imagination, making mistakes and laughing are all part of the amazing Christian journey. Find some new ideas here.
|Stop and smell the roses||
Even in the middle of cities, a British summer is full of flowers. We love to see them bloom, bringing spectacular colour and sometimes fragrance into the summer months. It’s a lovely time to appreciate the beauty of God’s world, and think about how God cares for us as part of creation.
|Love where you live||
Whether you live in the country or in the city, there are so many ways to grow together as a family, and to take part in what’s happening in your local community.
|Sun, sea and sand||
If you’re going to the beach this summer, whether just for a day, or for a longer holiday, you’ll love these ideas to help make your time together fun and memorable.
|Book - Sports fun for Messy Churches||
Enhance your Messy Church with fun-filled games and sports activities for the whole family to enjoy. A wealth of simple, interactive games and sports ideas. This book is also available to borrow from the Resources Centre.
