Gifts for Jesus
w/c 8 January 2018
This assembly explores the Epiphany through children’s experience of giving gifts. We discover the meaning behind the significant gifts of the wise men and there is a prayerful reflection time for the children to think about what they can give to Jesus. The assembly ends with the revelation of how Jesus himself is the most perfect gift of love from God to us.
