Children’s Liturgy Newlands

WelCom September 2018:

Kitty McKinley

Youth Leaders from Challenge 2000 have partnered with St Andrew’s in Newlands to provide training for local young people to continue to offer child friendly liturgy sessions each Sunday. For Children’s Liturgy, our youth leaders read a child-centred gospel that led into a craft activity focusing on Jesus being the ‘Bread of Life’. The children discussed different types of bread that they know – buns, toast, pita bread and sandwiches. They reflected on the fact that bread fills us up and gets us going – giving us energy to play, live, work and help others. Jesus gives us his body so we can have life to the full.
