Creative ideas for themed games, power-points and use of art in worship.

Art & Spirituality

This session looks at the role and use of art within Christian spirituality at different times in history and to see how some people use it as part of worship today. Could be used as either a school lesson or a church based session. It would need a little adapting if leaders are unable to use the PowerPoint (which is available in other forms on request.)

Messy, silly and great fun both to create as well as play – in teams. One game for each of the plagues of Egypt – well 9 of them anyway.  This can be used as an introduction to a session on Moses or used as the main activity with a short God slot at the end. Each of the plagues has a link to the ancient Egyptian gods.
