w/c 9 September 2019
Building from last week where children learned about God's dream for them, this assembly helps children look forward to how wonderful a life with Jesus can be, and how to ensure Jesus is the firm foundation at the centre of their hopes and dreams for the future.
“…And indeed, which of you here, intending to build a tower, would not first sit down and work out the cost to see if he had enough to complete it?” Luke 14: 28
Key Point / Learning Objective:
- Look ahead with hope and reflect on how Jesus will help them to plan for the future.
- Understand that life is better when we invite Jesus to be with us always and in every part of our lives.
- Engage with the imaginative exercise.
- Answer questions and engage with a time of prayer.
- PowerPoint presentation
- Appendix 1 – ‘Making a Life with Jesus’
- Appendix 2 – Gospel reading
- Print a copy of Appendix 1 to lead the first part of the assembly – it is an imaginative visualisation exercise.
- Prepare a child to read the Gospel.
Contemporary: 'Build Your Kingdom Here' by Rend Collective

What is included in the assembly download?
- Assembly Plan - We will provide a plan for each assembly which is written in note style rather than a script per se. We encourage teachers to make the resources their own and to adapt the questions and input to their children.
- Appendices – some assemblies have appendices which need to be printed for use during the assembly
- OPTIONAL* Powerpoint - the majority of assemblies have an accompanying PowerPoint with all relevant media embedded (e.g. film/music)
*Sometimes, PowerPoint files are large because they contain film footage. Alternatively, you can use the Online Presentation, which is the same resource, that streams the presentation and film content. This is also useful for Mac users who may not be able to view the film footage.
What software and equipment do I need?
- You will need Powerpoint software if you choose to download the presentation instead of using the online version. Alternatively, you can use the Powerpoint Viewer, which is a free download from Microsoft. (If you have an old version of Powerpoint, we also recommend downloading the updatedPowerpoint Viewer)
- As we use .wmv files for our films, you will also need Windows Media Player. This is a free download from Microsoft. It is usually downloaded automatically as part of Windows Updateso please ensure that you have updated your Windows.
- And we also recommend downloading Quicktime, which is a free download from Apple.
- To play the film and audio, you will require a projector, screen and sound system.
Do I need to stream films?
- If you use the PowerPoint, the film file is contained within the presentation.
- If you use the Online Presentation, you will need to stream the films on the internet.
- If you are a Mac user, you may not be able to play WMV files. In this instance, please use the online presentation to stream the films online.
How is the Online Presentation different from PowerPoint?
- It is quicker and easier to access the Online Presentation instead of downloading a large PowerPoint file.
- You need an internet connection to view the Online Presentation.
- The films do not play WITHIN the presentation. Instead a new tab opens taking you to the film page. After the film has finished, return to the original tab and make the presentation full-size again.
- Depending on your browser and computer figuration, reflective music may not be available to you.
