Messy Easter 2020

by Clare Liptrott

Well done to everyone who joined in Easter Messy Church Crafts

      

It is a shame that this year we won’t be able to meet together for Messy Church on Good Friday as we usually would BUT please find here a reading of the Easter Story and some short prayers that you and your families can watch and listen to.  PLUS an Easter craft activity to complete.  Any photos of completed crafts that we receive will be posted on the website so everyone can enjoy them - so please send in your photos!

Make an Easter Story Wreath

To assemble the wreath simply print, colour and cut out the images. For a wreath base I used a large circle cut from a 12" x 12" piece of cardboard.

I arranged the pictures to "tell" the story from Palm Sunday (starting on the top right) through Pentecost (placed in the top centre). If you're interested in making this wreath I'm sure you're already very familiar with the order of the events, but I will go ahead and list them just in case.

 

  1. Jesus enters Jerusalem (palm branch and donkey pictures)
  2. The Last Supper (bread and wine pictures)
  3. Jesus Prays in Gethsemane (praying hands picture)
  4. Jesus is Crucified (cross picture)
  5. Resurrection (empty tomb picture)
  6. Ascension (Jesus in clouds picture)
  7. Holy Spirit Comes Down (dove and flames pictures).

Here is an example of an assembled wreath will look like.

I hope this wreath helps make the Easter season more meaningful for you!

God bless.  Clare x
