This week ‘The Gathering’ Contemporary Worship has been shared for our online worshippers.
Psalm 139 encourages us that God knows all our thoughts, worries, joys and delights. This week the illustration involves a coin disappearing and re-appearing and through it we explore that God promises to be with us all the time where ever we are. At a time when children are going into new classes or new schools, with possible anxiousness, we try to offer some encouragement.
This week we explore that the Bible can come into colour as we read it. It is the word of God and the book for life. This edition of Bible Bites has one of our favourite illustrations, we hope you will enjoy it as we explore Psalm 119 verse 105: “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path”.
There are teacher supporting notes available for all the editions of Bible Bites. If you work at a school and would like these, please contact us. We would be very happy to support you.
The simple illustration this week links in with the theme that prayer is connecting to God. We explore what Jesus said about prayer, how people pray and where. The illustration is explained so children can learn how to do this at school or home. Props needed – £5 note (or paper!) and 2 paper clips.
This week we learn more about the The Trinity using Jaffa Cakes and a piece of paper. The church celebrates Trinity Sunday at the end of May, this week we try to offer some insight.
This week Bible Bites explores having courage to let the good shine out bright rather than hiding the light under a cup or bowl. How do the bright yellow pompoms, representing light, move through the cups to represent making a brighter light? Watch to discover as we learn from Jesus teaching from the Sermon on the Mount about letting your light shine bright.
Teacher supporting notes are available.
As we explore trust we see if we can trust Rev Mark to make some water disappear!? We learn more about trust with Bible Bite about the man and the mat.
We celebrate Jesus is Alive! The Easter Sunday Bible passage of John 20:1-18 is read by Millie, Rev Mark shares the Easter message and Tom leads us in a time of prayer.

We are excited the Bible bites Easter Treasure Hunt is now here!
This is where you can get the the map to show where the different clues are in Dersingham. The clues are all in place and can be seen from the outside of shops, organisations or businesses and will be available until Saturday 10th April 2021. Use the QR codes on the map to see a short introduction video from Rev Mark and one at the end when you have finished by Rev Dave. The answers from each clue in order will make a summary of a Bible verse in Luke’s Gospel about Easter.
Every entry will get a prize for taking part!
We hope you will enjoy getting out and exploring during the Easter holidays.
Rev Mark and Rev Dave – Bible Bites
We journey through the Easter narrative focusing on Good Friday exploring that Good Friday is Good because of the love that God has for us, so that we can say sorry for our sin and be forgiven. This week’s illustration involves paper disappearing and unusually it is explained how it works!
The good news is there will be an Bible Bites Easter Part 2 for children and families during the holidays available online from Easter Day. Rev Mark and Rev Dave are looking forward to learning more about Jesus Resurrection by making something unbelievable yet great fun!!!
