Easter Journey

Nativity Scene

The Easter Journey’s aim is for every child to hear about the life of Jesus and the events of Holy Week and Easter and be encouraged to consider, question and explore the key questions: ‘Why was Jesus a King?' and ‘Why did He die?’

The children will each receive a notebook at the beginning of the session. They will move around the room and visit five interactive stations where they will hear about the teaching and miracles of Jesus and the events that happened in Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday. Afterwards they will be encouraged to reflect on what they heard in discussion with the group leader.
Before moving to the next station they will complete an activity in their notebook.  The children will be able to take these back home to remind them of what they learned on their Easter Journey. As the session draws to an end the children will gather together for a conclusion and opportunity to give  feedback and ask questions. 
 
There will be some light refreshments during the session and the whole ‘Journey’ will take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
