A Glimpse of God's Kingdom
A Glimpse of God's Kingdom are a set of Assemblies / Collective Worships for use in primary schools. Each assembly has a script and a PowerPoint. These assemblies have themes taken from The Beatitudes, part of Jesus sermon on the mount. In these assemblies each of the beatitudes has been linked to a Christian value which is part of the title of the assembly. The first assembly is an introduction to the theme.
This focus on God's kingdom is to enable school to be part of the Thy Kingdom Come initiative in May 2018.
The assemblies could be used by school staff or by church visitors taking school assemblies. They are suitable for use in non-church schools although may require some adaptation to the prayer / reflection to suit the school's usual practice.
There is a set of prayer stations suitable for use with all ages on the website here.
