Hi. We hope you enjoy catching up!

Welcome and thank you for joining us. If this is your first time at The Oak, hello, we hope you enjoy our time together today.

Our plan today is to start by worshipping together (song words will be on-screen). After that, there'll be a time of prayer and news, followed by a short talk.

There are materials on this page for our 0-3's (The Nest), Preschool to Year 6 (Treehouse) and Year 7+ (Oak Youth) to help the whole family grow together.

Happy Sunday, see you at 10.30am!

You can also catch up to all our talks via our podcast here.

The NestGod’s Wonderful World Week 7
0-3's

This term in the Nest we are learning about the world around us to help us remember to be thankful for all the wonderful places God has created. This week we are looking at the Arctic!

Verse ‘I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds.’ Psalm 9v1

Book Five Minute Bible Stories by Fiona Boon & Hayley Down (pages 71-91) (see link here). Tamsin, one of our fantastic Nest team, has recorded a video of this term’s book including a Makaton signed story and song (see link here).

Songs Who’s the king of the jungle - Creator God - If I were a butterfly - Praise the Lord - When I look (see the videos here) - Father God (to the tune of Old MacDonald, lyrics below, have a go at making up more verses with your child about other things you can find in the Arctic).

Father God made the world, E-I-E-I-O,

And in the Arctic He made it cold, E-I-E-I-O

With a brr brr here, and a brr brr there etc.

Activity Make your own Arctic with some pretend snow for your child to explore. This can be made using shredded white paper, rice, cotton wool or packing beads. There are also lots of recipes online for snow made with corn flour or baking powder depending what you have available. Add any Arctic animals you have and remind your child as they play that God made the snow in the Arctic - we can thank God for the wonderful Arctic.

TreehouseLife of Jesus - Miracles - Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus
Preschool - Year 6

Welcome back to Treehouse - We are retuning to our series LIFE OF JESUS - MIRACLES 

Where we are learning more about some of the miracles Jesus did, and thinking about what they tell us about Him. 

Our story can we found in Mark 10:46-52, why don't you check it out and have a read together as a family. 

Our video today includes games and Rob is reading out the story to us, enjoy watching and joining in with the activities. 

Worship: 

God of Miracles 

House of Miracles 

Waymaker - with motions 

Miracle of Love 

Activities:

  1. Using paper plates can you decorate them to show the different emotions Bartimaeus experienced. Or create different characters from the story. Attach a lolly pop stick so you can spin your plate round to show different emotions.
  2. Each one of us is important to Jesus – Make some badges you can wear saying –

“Jesus loves me”

“Important to God”

God says I am special”

Or you can come up with your own badge design.

  1.  Use some pictures from the news to think about others - although we don’t know these people, God knows all about them and loves them. Why don’t you pray for the people in the pictures as a family?

Have a fantastic week

Why not share what you've been up to on the Treehouse Parents Facebook Group?

Oak YouthDid somebody say holiday?
Year 7+

Myself & the Oak Youth team wish you and your families a fun and restful half term and look forward to seeing you again on 13th june, where we will continue our Youth Alpha series with episode 6 on ‘Why & how do I read the Bible’.

In the meantime, continuing with the theme from our previous session, why not take some time out over half term to pray using the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. Remember to ‘keep it real’, it’s not just about giving Him a list of needs (although He wants to hear them), it’s about building a relationship with almighty God, friend of sinners.

Until next time,
Becks & the Oak Youth team

P.S. Don’t forget you can use this simple framework to help you talk to Jesus - praise, thank you, sorry & please.
