Easter resources – Eight new ideas to try

This Easter season, journey with Jesus on His path to the cross and celebrate His resurrection. Whether you are planning a sunrise service or an Easter party, we have put together a selection of resources to help you reflect and celebrate. 

  1. Share the Easter story in new ways

Children (and adults!) love Lego and will be fascinated by watching it come to life in this wonderfully engaging video. Use in children’s groups and all age services to get children thinking about, discussing and interacting with the age-old story in a fresh way.

  1. Distribute butterfly chrysalises on Good Friday  

Before Easter, make butterfly chrysalises (or buy them online), and give them away on Good Friday, along with a special invitation card to your Easter services. The butterflies will emerge on Easter Sunday and serve as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ. After all, death, transformation, and life are all found in the chrysalis.
