“This is a Holy week and Easter like no other – but we are still the church, the family of God and below are some ways in which we can continue to connect at home through this time. Check out the ways you can take part or help your children and young people engage with the Easter story, the story we are part of and the important truth of that for our lives.” – Gillian Gilmore, IMYC

 

Family resource

  • This Easter, spend some time with family reflecting on the journey of Jesus to the cross and then to resurrection. Use this resource as a daily devotional for 4 days or as an alternative way of engaging in the story on Easter Sunday. Monologues, reflection sheets, questions and crafts can all be found here.
  • Easter Sunday Family Service: we know many of you are connecting in new ways and continuing to worship with your own local church family. This is a little extra aimed at children and families by the TOM team – available from 9am on Easter Sunday morning (click here to access).
