Children's liturgy

Prayers and resources for children's liturgy catechists as well as for families who aren't able to attend church in person at the moment.

Virtual children's liturgy

We are continuing with our live sessions for the moment as we know not everyone has been able to return to church.

Join us at 10am this Sunday for our next virtual children's liturgy. Please register if you haven't before. Follow the link and click on "Enter the series" to register. If you can't join us live, a recording will be available to watch afterwards.

Throughout August, we do not have our usual illustrations for every week. If you would like further activities for the children for these Sundays, please see our family prayer resources.

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (18 July)

Jesus and his disciples wanted to get away and spend some time resting by themselves, but it didn't quite work out like that. Jesus shows the crowd compassion.

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (25 July)

Jesus fed a huge crowd, over 5,000 people, with five loaves and two fish. What an amazing miracle!

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (1 August)

Jesus tells us that he is the bread of life. He makes us strong and able to help others. 

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (8 August)

Jesus talks more about how he is the bread of life, but the crowd finds it hard to believe because they know his parents, Mary and Joseph. Sometimes we miss seeing God in unexpected people and places.

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (15 August)

We celebrate how Mary was taken to heaven at the end of her life and reflect on the special song of praise that she sang to God.

Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time (22 August)

Lots of people found it too hard to believe that Jesus was really the Son of God, and so they gave up, went away and didn't listen to him anymore. What do we do when things are difficult?

Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time (29 August)

Jesus tells us that it is not enough to believe in God. We must show that we love God by our actions and being the best people we can be.

Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time (5 September)

Jesus helps a man who is deaf to hear and to speak more clearly. We think about how we can listen and speak out.
