During Lent, we do not say or sing the word ALLELUIA. This is because Lent is a quiet, thinking time. We use the season of Lent to get ready for Easter. This Sunday at the Children’s Table colour your very own ALLELUIA and place it into an envelope to be opened at Easter, when we celebrate that Jesus is alive and say and sing ALLELUIA once again!

This week children are invited to make Sun Masks as a reminder that God’s light shines in them.

The Children’s Table area is designed to give children the opportunity to experience worship in ways that allow for creativity and room to wiggle. Children and their caregivers are invited to visit the Children’s Table following the anthem and make use of the materials and activities that are there. Children’s bulletins help even the youngest worshippers connect to the day’s message and instructions are provided for a self-guided activity. Additional books, toys and colouring supplies are also available at the Children’s Table for those who wish to make use of them.
