Well done on all your hard work so far, I hope you enjoy this week’s topic.

Worship ideas

As you think about making time each day for worship, you might start by making yourself a prayer table or corner – somewhere that you can be still, comfortable but still, not distracted by anything going on around you.

You might want to set up a “table” – a real one or the top of a chest of drawers or even an upturned box, cover it with a cloth if you can and maybe place your Bible on it, maybe your Rosary beads or a crucifix if you have them and if Mum and Dad are happy, a candle which you can light as you pray.

Plan your worship time…

How will it start – maybe lighting the candle, asking that the Light of Jesus represented by that candle may be in your heart…

You might want to start with a prayer – use our School prayer book for inspiration and ideas.

Read a passage from the Bible. The Gospels are always good to read. We are still in the season of Easter and the Readings this year come from John’s Gospel.

Take time to stop and think about what the Gospel writer is saying to you about Jesus and maybe decide on soemthing that you are going to do to change the way you behave or think about things to match Jesus’ teaching.

You could sing a hymn that you know or find one on the internet to sing along to and take the time for prayer.

Pray for yourself, for your family, for your friends. Pray for our doctors and nurses and all those who are working so hard now to keep us all safe and well. Pray for our world.

Online Safety

Young Voices have suggested that you can send in recordings of your family singing together but YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PARENTS’ OR LEGAL GUARDIAN’S PERMISSION TO DO THIS. You do not need to do this to join in the concert. If your parents allow you, film in a suitable place such as your garden or living room – not your bedroom; you can dress up but always check with your parents that you are wearing suitable clothes. Stay safe!
