Description

Why not invite local school classes to visit your church in the run up to Easter and re-enact the Easter story for them? St Polycarp’s in Sheffield did just that with brilliant results! They visited schools first to teach the pupils some songs, choose 12 disciples and make palm leaves. Then they invited all the pupils into their church and walked them through the events using videos, a Passover meal, dramatic story-telling and song. The children and teachers loved it and we think it’s an idea that could work brilliantly around the country!


Resources


There are lots of organisations who can help you deliver excellent schools work. Check out www.schoolswork.co.uk, www.yfc.co.uk, and www.scriptureunion.org.uk for more details.

Rationale

Schools are right at the heart of the community and provide a great way to reach young people and their families. Don’t be daunted if you’ve never worked with your local school as Easter offers a multitude of reasons to get involved. Easter is part of the curriculum so teachers are often very grateful for help, plus this could be a great chance to start conversations about other ways your church could be a blessing to them over the whole year.

This idea could be done by one church, or in partnership with others in your area.

Outcome

Schools are supported, and your faith is shared.
