The Empty Tomb
w/c 22 April 2019
This assembly helps children to encounter the risen Jesus personally and reflect on the reality that He rose from the dead.
The Easter season is 50 days long and lasts until the great Feast of Pentecost - this assembly helps children to begin this journey of new life and reflect more deeply on how it is because of Jesus' death and resurrection that we are each offered the gift of new life.
Some schools will have had the opportunity to use the Ten Ten Resources Lent Service. However, if not, you might like to use some or all of it this week - in particular, the 'Thief on the Cross' monologue which describes Jesus' death and leads into the resurrection theme of this assembly.
"Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here; he is risen." Luke 24: 1-12
