The Road to Easter

An action-packed Lent and Easter activity programme for 5-10s

Jacqui Gardner & Chris Leonard, illustrated by James Alexander

Currently out of print £8.99


Here is a resource designed especially for busy children's workers within the church who are looking for material to use with their fun-loving, active and energetic children in the lead-up to Easter.

The eight-session programme relates stories of Jesus from John's Gospel to the Christian journey of faith and the lives of children. A vivid road theme is used throughout to apply Jesus' Easter journey to everyday life and to remind children that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

The sessions are planned to finish on Easter Sunday if begun on the first Sunday in Lent, or to be used in an Easter Holiday Club programme. The material is suitable for small single-age groups, as well as larger mixed groups. Each week, two take-home sheets will reinforce the teaching and fun.

Each session includes:
Take-home activities
Take-home sheets with photocopy permission
Instructions for making a giant frieze which can be displayed in the church at Easter
Key Bible verses
Drama sketches


Endorsements for The Road to Easter have not yet been added.
