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!
