HELPING THE CHURCH ENGAGE IN WORSHIP WHEN EVERYONE’S ALL-IN TOGETHER
Creative ideas to bring the Bible alive. Free ideas for Sunday and midweek groups and all-age services
Weekly song, hymn and recorded music suggestions and resources for worship – based on the Revised Common Lectionary. Suggestions are posted on Wednesday nights, usually a few weeks in advance of each Sunday.
Many worship planners want to include the children in their congregation’s worship in ways that help them experience God’s presence now and help them grow as worshiping disciples. Figuring out how to do that on any given Sunday is not always easy.
This lectionary-based blog offers specific helps for specific Sundays. It is not about children’s sermons, although I hear people are using the ideas here to create them. It is not about children’s church services which separate children from the rest of the worshiping congregation, although I hear people are using these ideas to build those services too.
It is really about inter-generational worship which intentionally includes God’s people of all ages in a single service.
“Doing theology with a child in the midst” is at the heart of the Child Theology Movement (CTM www.childtheology.org). We do theology this way in the hope that the theological reflection and engagement that comes from this can inform the mission and ministry of the whole church, not just work with children. This phrase is taken from Matthew 18:2 and reflects the action of Jesus in responding to his disciples’ question about who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.

Some thoughts and reflections
Worshipping with babies and toddlers began as a survival tactic, but it soon became a passion.
The more we learned about the first six years of life, the more important they seemed. During those early years our sense of who we are and where we belong is shaped.
We realised that, if we wanted to build up a People of God:
who take part fully in worship
who are willing to lead
who see God and the Bible as relevant to life…
… this had to begin during these first six years.

REBOOT is a youth event of RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries) that began in London in 2013 to create a space where teenagers from any background could ask questions about God and the Christian faith. So far, REBOOT has been held in some of the most important cities around the world, and we continue to visit more every year!
REBOOT is designed for young people, who have doubts about the Christian faith or who want to be more prepared to talk about God with their friends. We look at topics such as: “Why does God allow suffering?”, “How can we know that God exists?” and “Does science deny God?” among many other relevant topics today.
No question off limits!
At REBOOT events we try to provide an open space for teenagers (with faith or none), to raise their objections and thoughts about the Christian faith. It is an opportunity for them to be honest with the doubts they have and to formulate their own “big questions” about God, faith and life.
This site is designed to bring you as many youth ministry resources as possible. Here you will find sermon outlines, youth ministry games, Powerpoint templates, sermon series artwork, downloadable forms, etc.

Kevin Mayhew Ltd
Serving churches, schools and music lovers the world over
Kevin Mayhew Publishers was founded in 1976 with the express intention of serving the entire Christian community. The company made its name initially as a publisher of hymn books, though the catalogue quickly grew to embrace choral, organ and worship music. In time, a book department was established to provide liturgical resources, material for children’s ministry, theological and devotional books.
Greeting cards, gifts and educational resources are also now offered in addition to a complete catalogue of church supplies that encompasses furniture, clerical wear, candles and much more. The music catalogue embraces all major instruments and the record label produces quality CD recordings of organ, choral and classical music, with many recordings made in our state-of-the-art studio.
The company holds a unique position in that its products are owned and trusted in equal measure by members of all Christian denominations. Whilst we continue to strive and pray for unity within the Church, we believe that it is possible to serve the whole Church of God – indeed many of our products enjoy broad appeal across the many streams.
