"excel in this grace of giving" (2 Cor. 8:7)

All age worship

This all age service offers an outline for a Service of the Word and includes detailed suggestions for activities within the service. Those planning the worship can, of course, edit, adapt or replace materials and will need to select hymns and songs according to church custom. The service includes the option of telling the story of The Selfish Giant and illustrating the story with four full colour pictures.
This all age material can be used in a range of contexts. In some churches it will form the basis of worship all together in church. In other churches portions of the service can be used when the church is gathered together before the children go to separate groups. Elsewhere an activity may be presented by the children when they come into church after Communion. Some of the suggested ideas and the story of The Selfish Giant can be adapted by children's ministry leaders for use in children's groups.
