HomeChurch resources for children

Corona Virus Prevention measures mean we are unable to offer any face to face children’s activities at present.

Whilst we are unable to meet in person we will try and provide a children’s resource linked to the liturgy with our home church resources.

Here are a few more things for children to help them continue their journey of faith from home.

The Woodland Gospels: An audio story for children to listen to during the summer holidays, be it on a long car journey or lying on the sofa or in the garden (with headphones)


Exploring God’s Amazing World

As part of the preparation for the prayers for our first Outdoor Church on 5th July we challenged the children to find something in the natural world around them for each letter of St. Catherine’s – they can record it in drawing, collage, writing, audio or video, or write a prayer or a song or take a photo and share it with us. You can download the words and worsheet here – Exploring God’s Amazing World  Send your creations to webmaster@stcatherines-stuttgart.de

If you would like an example to give you some ideas, we have put together one here, but remember you can use any medium you like:

Can you learn the first part of the Prayer of St. Francis for our OutdoorChurch in September?

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy.
