FAITH AT HOME
The CofE is also launching #FaithAtHome on today (Thursday 30th April). This will be available to many children and young people through our partnership to provide collective worship with Oak Academy, and through church and school networks. It will offer people of all ages and faith backgrounds a chance to pause, think and reflect, and to rebuild lost habits of prayer and faithful reflection in the home.
These weekly 10-12 minute packages of video content will be available from 7th May.
The first can be accessed at www.churchofengland.org/faithathome
Daily videos for teenagers using challenges from sport and culture to help explore the Bible and how it might be relevant today.
Created for teenagers with no experience of church, as well as those who’ve been there all their lives:
Last week we learnt about Saul, now called Paul. Paul travelled around, visiting many of the early churches, but some people didn't approve of what he was doing, and he was often put into prison. This meant that he couldn't visit the churches, but he could write letters to them, and these letters form a large part of the New Testament.
This week's Messy Church at Home includes a game of Pictionary, some origami, and Mess-ages to God as we explore Paul's letters.
