Hundreds of local churches and schools already have cause to be thankful for Sarah Lenton's original, multi-sensory and fun-filled approach to opening up the Gospels for children. If you're a children's church leader and find it hard to come up with fresh ideas week after week, then this book is for you. Focusing on the Gospel reading for every Sunday and major holy day of Year B, Creative Ideas for Children's Worship provides complete and ready-to-use sessions containing: * lists of the toys and props you'll need each week * downloadable cartoons and pictures * opening and closing prayers * the Gospel reading of the day * instant scripts giving you your lines and the (probable) responses of the children * games and activities to reinforce the Gospel message * ideas for presentations to the adults back in church. Requiring little advance preparation, this collection is structured for use in any Year B. Lectionary cross-references make it an ideal resource for children's Liturgy of the Word in Anglican and Catholic parishes and schools alike.
Sarah Lenton studied theology at King's College and works for the Royal Opera House helping to educate people about opera. She has worked as a broad-caster, theatre director and a cartoonist and brings all these gifts to her work with the children of her parish church and the local Catholic church in Chiswick.
