Easter EncountersTony Bower
For Primary and Secondary Schools


Let’s go back nearly 2,000 years, to a big city in the back-water province of Palestine. Many people back in the city of Jerusalem were about to have an encounter with a man they would never, ever forget. Even though Pilate washed his hands of an innocent man, how could he ever forget his conversation about truth with the ‘king of the Jews’? A Soldier would always remember the words of the man on the cross. But, that’s not all. This man died and was buried. Three days later... people... encountered... the same man..... Alive. Surely, that was an encounter that they would never forget. And this man’s name is Jesus.

This book is a collection of scripts, poems prayers and dramatic readings all about these ground-breaking encounters. They are written by Tony Bower, who is the head of YoYo (York Schools and Youth Trust), which is a Christian charity that brings the Christian faith alive.

These scripts, poems, prayers and dramatic readings can be used in schools and churches, for lessons, assemblies and services to impact and inspire.

Happy and BlessedJohn Cox The Beatitudes are some of the best known of Jesus teachings. But too often they are thought to be a matter of simple common sense.

Popular author John Cox, brings his open and accessible approach to the challenging nature of these short sayings revealing them as among the most radical of what Jesus had to say.

This five week course for individual or group study, explores the context of ideas in the Beatitudes, the insights that differing translations bring to them, and how they continue to challenge us in our world today including our attitude to possessions, to loss and forgiveness, to judgement and salvation.

Ideal for all of us during Lent.

The Possibility of DifferenceMarcus Green In this book, Marcus Green makes three startling honest confessions. His first, that he is an Anglican, his second that he is an evangelical, and finally, his third, that he is gay. It is these seemingly uncompromising and conflicting contrasts that make the basis for this striking, perhaps controversial but absolutely necessary book on attitudes towards homosexuality in the Christian faith.

Rational yet fiercely passionate, Marcus tackles some of the scripture that is often used to condemn homosexuality as a sin and opens it up to the reader as what it really is, the word of God’s love. Addressing the conservative but contemporary orthodoxy that is expected of the Christian community, Marcus explores the alienation that the ‘party line’ has on gay Christians and questions the impact that this has on the wider Christian community.

As Marcus says ‘it’s good to talk. It’s vital to challenge places where talking feels forbidden.’

Sunday School In A Tin!Eleanor King
Stories, Ganes & creative craft ideas for year C


No planning, no preparation, no photocopying or collection of lids or yoghurt pots - once you have filled your tin or box with a few inexpensive and easy to find resources you will be set up for the rest of the year. For each Sunday there is a story, based on the lectionary readings, a game, something to make using what you already have in your tin, and a child-friendly prayer.

The ideas are flexible so that they can be used with children of different ages, and with different sized groups. This is useful if the number of children at church fluctuates from week to week, or if there are families who only come to church from time to time. It’s also great for busy people who don’t have time to plan for or prepare activities for the children in church but see a need for something that makes church more fun and engaging for the youngest members of the congregation.

This book takes the stress, hassle and rush out of preparing activities for the children in your church so that Sunday mornings can be a little more restful.

The Puzzle Of Pastoral careAlison Moore The Puzzle Of Pastoral care is for anyone who is responsible for, interested in or practising pastoral care: lay or ordained; in full time or part time ministry; paid or voluntary. Anyone being trained in pastoral care or responsible for training others. The issues raised are relevant to churches of all denominations.

Pastoral care in churches is a puzzle. Why is it rarely talked about seriously? How has it come to be either taken for granted or sidelined as less important than ‘mission’ and ‘church growth’? And why is pastoral care so difficult to do well? It is clearly at the heart of the Christian life, yet in many churches, pastoral care is surprisingly inadequate, and where it does work well, it is often mysteriously difficult to replicate elsewhere.

This book aims to help churches work on better pastoral care provision. It takes a down-to-earth approach in a brief and accessible format. While addressing what makes for good, thoughtful, high-quality pastoral care, it also looks at what can get in the way, the hitches and glitches and challenges. Each short section includes illustrative stories, ending with suggested Bible passages and prayers. It could be used by a group or dipped into by individuals.

Exploring the Sunday Gospel Patricia Ainge Exploring the Sunday Gospel offers an accessible resource for churches and parents alike as it aims to bring the Sunday Gospel to life through the use of simplified texts, explanations and activities. Helping young children connect and engage with the church year and its significance, it also encourages them to think about how the Sunday Gospel stories are special and how they relate to modern life. The book provides material for the three cycles, A, B and C, that is followed by the Catholic church on a Sunday and ensures that the materials given are suitable and interesting for a younger audience.

Not only a popular author, Patricia Ainge spent twenty-five years working in Catholic schools, both as a teacher and as a deputy head. With her understanding of the difficulties faced by teachers and catechist leaders, Patricia provides a comprehensive and exciting manual on teaching the Sunday Gospel to preschool age children.

Echoes of Eternity - 125 Vibrant New HymnsMartin Leckebusch Here is a further collection of new hymn texts by Martin Leckebusch, whose writing is finding a place in many hymnals both in the UK and beyond. He writes in the tradition of the classic hymn writers but uses fresh, contemporary language to explore the Christian faith for the twenty-first century. These words are mostly set to well-known and widely published tunes, making them easily accessible to congregations for use in worship.

This latest selection comes as the author passes the milestone of thirty years writing hymns; his work draws inspiration from a wide range of sources while always remaining true to Scripture. The book is made highly usable by the inclusion of Biblical, thematic and other indexes.

As the author says: ‘Hymns – both those from past generations and those by contemporary writers – remain an important element in my own Christian walk, and one of the ways my faith is nurtured and sustained. I hope that readers of this collection will find here insights and words to encourage and strengthen their own faith.’

101 Creative Prayer IdeasEleanor King

Marble-run prayers, milkshake prayers, paper boat prayers and teapot prayers – there’s something for everyone in this fun, thought-provoking and creative book. With a focus on peace, respect, care for others, and the world around us.

The prayer ideas are grouped into five themes:

• Saying thank you
• Sorry prayers
• Prayers for others
• Prayers for ourselves
• Things to remind us to pray

The activities will be loved by children from 3-11, and many of them will also be appreciated by teens and adults who want to reflect and draw closer to God in an accessible, practical and creative way.


Endorsements:


Not sure how to help children to be prayerful? Whether it's a child at home or a group at church, this book has a wealth of creative ideas to get them involved and get them thinking. (And it might just do the same for us adults!)

Revd Phyllis Owen, Associate Priest, Parish of Southend

I love the way in which Eleanor provides a range of practical, imaginative, child-friendly activities which will connect children to God through play.

Syrie Cox, CEO Southend YMCA

It’s full of fun, fresh and practical ways to help children to pray. I will definitely use them in my classroom!
