Sunday Club

Here you can find our videos, colouring pages and puzzles. There will be something new each week – except for the first Sunday of each month, when we have something different at St Nicholas Marston – you can find out more about that on our Home Page

Sunday 23 May: Pentecost – The Birthday of the Church

This is our last Sunday Club for now. We loved receiving your pictures and are looking forward to seeing many of your again at St Nicholas church when we re-open on Sunday 13 June. But before, that, don’t forget our Green Church when we meet outdoors and have another adventure with Andy. That will be on Sunday 6 June. Hope to see you there!

Here is the template for the Holy Spirit spinner which you can print, cut out, colour and make.

Sunday 9 May: Christian Aid Week

Jesus calls us his friends. He chose us and gave us work to do, to show love and kindness to others. We’ll hear about how some of his friends are doing that.

Here are some pictures you could colour and give to someone you love.

 

Sunday 2 May: Green Church

There is no Sunday Club today, but if you live in Marston, please join us for a Brid Walk with Andy. Start in the Memorial Garden at 10.30 am and finish at the Vicarage. Sunday Club will be back next week!

And while you are passing the church, call in and have a look at the beautiful letters we received from pupils at St Nicholas School. Thank you Yew and Olive Class, we loved them!

Sunday 25 April: The Good Shepherd

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed some holiday over Easter. As we think this week about Jesus the Good Shepherd caring for us, we remember our friends at Divya Shanthi in Bangalore where the coronavirus pandemic is so bad. We pray that Jesus will protect and keep them safe.

Sunday 28 Mar: The Road to Easter

This is a special video which you can watch between Palm Sunday and Easter Day. To join in the activities you will need: paper, pen, scissors, something for modelling (e.g. clay, plasticine, pipe cleaner). You can collect a pack of materials with some extras from St Nicholas Church

Sunday 21 Mar: Jesus speaks about his destiny

Like a seed has to fall to the earth before it can bear its fruit, so Jesus came to die that we might have life.

Next week we have a special Sunday Club: The Road to Easter with activities you can do at home.

Sunday 14 Mar: Mothering Sunday

We say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has cared for us, especially mums, grans and aunts. But also to God who love the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but have everlasting life.

Sunday 28 Feb: Fair Trade Fortnight

Warning: if you have given up chocolate for Lent, you might find some scenes are rather tempting!

Sunday 21 Feb: Pray with Jesus

When times are hard, it’s good to know that Jesus has been there before. He always loves us and hears us when we pray.

Sunday 14 Feb: Acts of Kindness

It’s St Valentine’s Day! And this week will be the beginning of Lent. Will you have a pancake feast on Tuesday? And make an ash cross on Wednesday? If you live near Marston, you can collect a Lent pack from the church.

Sunday 7 Feb: Take time to talk with God

Jesus had a busy day in Capernaum. Crowds of people wanted to see him. But still he took time to be alone and pray to his Father.

Sunday 24 Jan: Ready, Set, Go!

Andrew, Peter, James and John were ready to go with Jesus. We can all get ready to go with him.

 

Sunday 17 Jan: Come and see

What did Tolkien and Lewis have in common with Philip and Nathanael?

Something different this week – not just a code, this is The Code of Life. See if you can solve it!

Sunday 10 Jan: New Beginnings

What do you hope to do in 2021? Some of our friends have sent us a video message. We’d love to hear from you too!


Here’s an activity sheet and a picture to colour:

Christmas: It begins in Bethlehem

A special story from Bob Hartman’s rhyming bible

 

This booklet is produced by the Bible Society and is part of Bob Hartman’s Rhyming Bible.

Sunday 20 December: Hope, Peace, Joy and Love

Eileen concludes the Godly play, and you can make an angel decoration.

Sunday 13 December: Getting Ready

Look out for the magnificent Jesse tree which the children at Divya Shanthi school have created to help tell the Advent story.

Sunday 29 November: Watching and Waiting

As we look forward to Christmas, we also remember how the prophets look forward to the coming of Christ.

Sunday 22 November: Acts of Kindness

The kind things you do make a difference to peoples lives. And when we work together it is a big difference!

Sunday 15 November: Lights to the World

We might feel very small and insignificant, but God wants us to share in his work by shining light into the darkness.

Sunday 8 November: Our Hope in Christ

Today is Remembrance Sunday. Writing to his friends at Thessalonica, Paul reminded them of the hope they had in Jesus, who died and rose again. Through Jesus, God will bring to himself those who have died and remake the world.


 

Sunday 25 October: Caring for others

Paul’s at Thessalonica are having a hard time, but he reminds them how much he cares for them. We are grateful to the people who care for us and show us how God helps us to care for others.

Sunday 18 October: Set a good example!

Paul is writing to encourage the church at Thessalonica. They have been facing a hard time but have continued to follow Jesus. Paul tells them what a good example they are to others.

Sunday 11 October: Rejoice in the Lord!

Paul was in prison in Rome, writing to his friends 850 miles away at Philippi in Greece. He wanted them to encourage them to rejoice, whatever difficulties they were facing. It’s still a good message to us today. Maybe you could write a letter or a card to encourage someone you know?
