Sunday Service for Kids

Hi families,

As we move into a new way of 'gathering' for our Sunday services, we have a new resource for kids to use.

We have 2 new 'service notes' pages for our children to do as they take part in the services each week. We will continue to teach lessons drawn from the Sunday service each week, and we hope that this resource is a helpful tool in involving, engaging and teaching our kids as we move into this next season together. 

Download and print these pages each week –  and feel free to share photos or stories of your kids' responses on our Facebook page 🙂

Sunday Service Activities: 26th July

Hi families,

Here are the Sunday service activities for our second week in our series on Generosity.


You will need:

  • Scissors
  • String/ribbon
  • Pen/marker

Gift box template

Download the gift box template and print on to coloured card or paper. In the center square, write the word 'everything'. Cut out the template shape. Then fold each of the solid lines, then press the points up together to make a pyramid shape. Cut small holes in the tops of the triangles and weave your ribbon through and pull it tight to bring it together as a gift box. On the outer sides of the triangles, write "Jesus generously gave me" – one word on each triangle. Then, as children open the gift box, they see He has given them 'everything'. He became poor, so we could become rich.

To see the finished product, watch this Youtube tutorial here.

Here's the service activities for the kids to do as we start our new series on generosity


Generosity Jug

You will need:

  • Plastic or paper cup
  • scissors
  • Pens/coloured pencils
  • sticky tape or glue

Download the jug template and have children write or draw things that God has generously given them on each line of the jug. Then cut out the strips and stick them into the cup as a way of demonstrating that we can pour out into others what God has generously given to us.


You will need:

  • Plastic or paper cup
  • scissors
  • blue or coloured paper
  • sticky tape or glue


Start by cutting strips of blue paper, sticking them around the edge of the cup. Then kids colour in the hearts, cut them out and stick them with the glue to the blue paper, demonstrating God's overflowing love for us.

Sunday Service Activities: July 5th

Hi families, 

Here are the activities for our kids as we look together at Acts chapters 7-9. We will be focusing on joining in on the work of God in sharing His good news with others.


Tools to Do God's Work toolbox and Tools to do God's Work

Download the above templates. Colour, and then cut out the toolbox and stick it together to create a place to store your tools. Then, colour and cut out the tool templates. As Ps Geoff is talking, write down some of the 'tools' we use to help with God's work. Alternatively, write down some of the 'tools' or things children think we need to share God's love. Eg. Kindness, grace, forgiveness, courage, prayer etc.


Helping Activity

Download and complete the activity on 'helping with our hands'. Trace around children's hands and talk about ways they can help show God's love and help to others on each of their fingers.

See you Sunday!

Emma, Lois & the FLBC Kids Ministry team.



Sunday Service Activities: 28th June

Hi families,

Here's the activities for the kids to do as we look at the Lord's Prayer for the last week in the series.

This week we will focus on the verse 'Yours is the Kingdom, Power and the Glory, forever and ever, amen." For the kids, we will focus on the fact that at the end of our prayers, we place all our worship, requests and repentance in God's hands, trusting that He is strong and faithful enough to carry it all. 


Kingdom, Power, Glory dumbell template

Make dumbells to demonstrate God's strength. Download the template, or copy it to draw for yourself. Provide kids with 2 sets of the circles. Cut out the circles and place them on top of each other, sticking them together, in sets of three. Write or draw the words "Kingdom, Glory and Power"- one on each circle. Then, using a skewer, stick or straw, stick the concentric circles on either end of the straw to create a dumbell. The dumbell is symbol of strength that reminds us that only God has the power to answer our prayers, so we can leave them in His hands and trust Him.


Here is a simple colouring in sheet to help children visualise that it is God who is the one who has the power to answer prayers.

See you Sunday

Sunday Service Activities: 21st June

Hi families, 

Here's the activities for the kids to do as we continue to read through the Lord's Prayer together.

We will be talking about the 'teaspoon' prayer with kids- TSP. Thank-you, Sorry, Please. An easy framework to help kids pray. 

Download the 'teaspoon' template.



On the first spoon, write or draw things to be thankful to God for. On the second, things we can say sorry for. On the last spoon, write or draw things they would like to ask God for. As an added challenge, ask children to only write or draw things that start with the corresponding letter on each spoon. T, S or P.


For each of the spoons, have children make the spoon into an animal starting with the letters T, S and P. (Tigers, Snakes, Pigs etc).

Have a great week!


Sunday Service Activities: 14th June

Hi families, 

Here's the activities for the kids to do as we take part in looking at the next verse of the Lord's Prayer together.

"Lead us not into temptation."


Cut strips of coloured paper. On the strips, have children write or draw things that could 'tempt' them away from following Jesus. Then, staple the strips of paper into a chain, as in the picture. Then pray with children about each of these tempting things, and as you pray for freedom from this temptation, break open the chain. Use this activity to remind children that Jesus breaks us free from the power of sin and temptation over us.


Walk the Path template

Download and print the template above. Have children draw themselves and their families, within the lines of the path that leads to Jesus. Decorate the path with foot prints or patterns. Talk about how there is always a choice to walk the path towards Jesus or be distracted by other things that take us away from Jesus. Help children to see that Jesus helps us stay on the path when we 'fix our eyes on Him'.

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Service Activities: Sunday 7th June

Hi there families,

Here's the activities for the kids as we join together and talk about the next verse in the Lord's Prayer, 

"Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us."


Download the template for the lantern. 

lantern template

Cut off the end of the paper. Set aside to use as the handle. 

  1. Decorate the sheet using coloured pens, paint or glitter.
  2. Fold your paper in half lengthwise along the thin line.
  3. Cut the marked lines along the sheet. 
  4. Unfold the paper.
  5. Match the long edges together on the lantern and use tape to hold it in place.
  6. On the lantern handle, write "Jesus help me to be your light in dark places."
  7. Staple the handle to the top of the lantern.

Place a tea light candle or small torch in the lantern and use it to pray around this week.


broken heart

Cut out the whole heart and cut out the broken heart into 3 pieces following the lines. Children can 'fix' the heart and put it back together using the whole heart as a guide as to where each piece goes. When we come to Jesus we are sinners, broken and lost. When we trust in Jesus and ask for his forgiveness and let him into our lives, he helps to complete us and works in us to make us whole again. We can help heal the brokenness of others too, when we forgive them for hurting us.

See you Sunday!

Love Emma, Ceri & the FLBC kids ministry team.

Sunday Service Activities: Sunday 31st May

Hi families, 

Here are the activities for our kids as we look at the next verse together in the Lord's Prayer. 

"Give us today our daily bread." Matthew 6:11



Colour in both sides of the bread and glue them together. Then pole a hole in the top and thread through ribbon or string to hang up.


Daily Bread Activity

Draw a large circle on a piece of paper to be your 'dinner plate'. Then cut out the food from the downloadable acitvity and colour in whichever foods you like. Cut them out and stick them on, along with the provided prayer as a reminder to say thank you to God for all the things He gives us.

From Emma, Lois & the kids ministry team of FLBC.
