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
Love Medley
Love Medley

Available as a full video with backing track - Download - Sample

The backing track is distributed using PRS Licence LE-0013013. 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.
Jesus is the King Jesus is the King

Available as an animated video with words and music - Download - Sample

The backing track is distributed using  PRS Licence LE-0013013. The words are copyright: Paul Sheely, © Emu Music Australia Inc (Permission applied for). Please do not pass it on outside the IDEAS scheme and declare its use on your CCLI report.

A prayer
A prayer can be found in the main PowerPoint and Notes files. Our aim over the 3 years is to gradually move to more and more interactive prayers to encourage children to pray themselves - Download
Puppets 'n' Parables
We suggest using the call of the disciples from the Miraclemaker including the call of Matthew - Sample

If you are using the DVD at this point you could switch your projector or TV to DVD and show the film (already cued up).
Matthew 4:18-22 and 9:9-12
Alternatively we supply a PowerPoint file of Matthew 4:18-22 and 9:9-12 - Download

It is a good idea, if possible, to get a child to read it or ask for volunteers to read it a screen each.

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 creating a large picture of Jesus and the disciples and then supplying everyone with piece of paper to draw themselves on and then stick on the larger picture. This is to give a reminder that we all can be disciples of Jesus - Download Template

Danielle's place offers a "Pig in a Basket" craft at:

DLTK also offer a number of resources including a puppet and name tags at:

There are a number of suggestions on Pinterest:

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

Love Medley We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
