This Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday. Every year we hear a passage using sheep and shepherds to describe Jesus’ relationship with his people.  In Biblical times the analogy of shepherding was used to describe rulers and leaders. Today it gives us an opportunity to think about trust and belonging.

PRAM SERVICE

In pram service this week we will have stories of sheep: thirsty sheep, hungry sheep, smelly sheep, naughty sheep, scared sheep … you get the idea.  We’ll have some songs and prayers and will make sheep together.  If you’d like to join in the craft please download the sheep template HERE and print on card.  You will need some cotton wool and glue to make the sheep look properly sheep-like. Pram Service starts at 8am, to join us please click this zoom link https://zoom.us/j/523536110 

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Join us for a song, stories, some drawing, sticking, some prayers and a chat. This week we are exploring Jesus as the good shepherd. You will need either white paint or cotton wool/ tissue for your sheep and lambs. Sing along to the Lord is my shepherd for this weeks hymn:

The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want;
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; he leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
E'en for his own name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill:
For thou art with me, and thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

My table thou hast furnishèd
In presence of my foes;
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God's house for evermore My dwelling-place shall be.
