Slides
The complete PowerPoint file for Tea-time church - Download

Remember to download all the videos you wish to use and always keep them in the same folder as the PowerPoint file. If you wish to use your own musicians it is a simple matter to delete our video slides and insert the words versions using "Insert Slides from file ..." or "Reuse Slides". You can also easily remove any part that you don't need or insert your own material.

There are also complete Notes - Download

The backing track is distributed using PRS Licence LE-0014823. The words are copyright: John Hardwick and used with permission. Please do not pass it on outside the IDEAS scheme and declare its use on your CCLI report.

We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


 Craft Template
For the corporate craft we suggest using a large picture of a field of sheep (like the one supplied as a template) and then getting everyone to write their name on a sheep, cut it out and stick it onto the large picture of the field. A sheet of templates of sheep is provided.

You could make a Cotton Ball Sheep - see

Or there is a simple Origami Lamb - see
http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/simple_origami_lamb.htm

For cooking you could make or decorate sheep biscuits. There are plenty of sheep biscuit cutters available online.

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

I rely on Your constant love We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
