The backing track is distributed using PRS Licence LE-0014823. The words are by © 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.


The Corporate Activity 
For the group craft we offer a picture of the temple courts as they were in Jesus's time. Transfer this to a large sheets and then get the children to draw and colour (or find pictures for them to colour) of the main characters in the story and then stick them onto the main picture and display in your church - Image

For individuals there is a Jesus at 12 door handle hanger at Sunday School Crafts. This can be coloured and then laminated. There is also a bookmark and cup-cake markers based on the same image.

There is also a worksheet including mazes and other materialalso at Sunday School Crafts.


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

Show respect for the Son We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
