Resources for Holy Week at home
Below are a number of suggested activities for families to do together each day of Holy Week (and Palm Sunday). Alongside these we particularly recommend the following resources:
From Dwell - providers of a children's ministry and Sunday school curriculum, this great FREE download God's Big Easter Story - a Holy Week journey for families.
To go alongside the resource above from Dwell, the Children, Youth and Families team has created this Holy Week Journey for Young People, a journalling resource that can be downloaded and either printed and written on directly or viewed on-screen using a separate paper journal.
Also available is the Methodist Holy Week and Easter poster, which you can download, print and display in your window for your neighbours to see. It is available in two versions - colour or black and white (the black and white version can be coloured in before displaying). Click here to find the resources to support the wider Church with worship during Holy Week and Easter.
