Jubilee: 2022 Children’s and Youth Work Theme
Resources for everyone engaging with children, young people and young adults.
This resource unpacks the biblical theme of jubilee, and explores ways to commemorate the past, celebrate the present and create the future together.
You’ll find a wide variety of ways to involve everyone, whatever their age or stage, across the year, and you will discover a wealth of material to enjoy with children, young people, young adults and in intergenerational contexts.
The resource headings for sections are only guides – please don’t limit yourself to those that most obviously fit your context as you will find great ideas you can adapt in other places.
If you don’t have any children of young people connected with your church, please:
- Enjoy the colouring pages and use some of the prayers, Bible studies and other materials with your adult groups
- Pray for those churches nearest to you which do, and the children and young people in your local community
- Offer these resources to your nearest uniformed group or school.
- There is also a pull-out poster that can be downloaded, below. This is taken from the intergenerational picture book Celebrate Together, specially written for the URC’s 50th anniversary.
