Remember to download all the videos you wish to use and always keep them in the same folder as the PowerPoint file. If you wish to use your own musicians it is a simple matter to delete our video slides and insert the words versions using "Insert Slides from file ..." or "Reuse Slides". You can also easily remove any part that you don't need or insert your own material.

Who, who, who, do you put you trust in Who, who, who, do you put you trust in

The backing track is distributed using PRS Licence LE-0014823. The words are by © John Hardwick and used with permission. Please do not pass it on outside the IDEAS scheme and declare its use on your CCLI report.

We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


 Craft Template
For the corporate craft we suggest using a large picture with the words "Forgive 7x70 times" on it . Then get the children to draw things in the 7 x 70 that the think people need to be forgiven for or if older perhaps a collage taken from newspapers. There is a  template for this - Download.

There is a craft activity that helps illustrate 7x70:

For cooking you could decorate cakes with hundreds and thousands. Packs of fairy cakes can be bought very cheaply, use a paste of icing sugar and water to create a sticky surface and then sprinkle on the hundred and thousands or chocolate strands. Explain that the hundreds and thousands helps us understand how many times Jesus wants us to forgive other people. You can eat the cakes at tea time.


Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

Who, who, who, do you put you trust in We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample

It is a good idea, if possible, to get a child to read it or ask for volunteers to read it a screen each.
