Lent 2021

Week 2

See NCTM Lent Journey Week 1 for last week's activities and pictures

Bible Reading Sunday: 28th February 2021

Bible reading Sunday: NOURISHMENT: it’s time to unveil our new theme for the week! This week will be all about nourishment and keeping going. For our passage this Sunday we have chosen John 6:35. Take a read and a reflect of this verse before going to bed tonight, or whenever you find yourself looking at this post. Take courage in the knowledge that God will always provide nourishment for you.

“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

Media Monday: 1st March 2021

NOURISHMENT: it’s Media Monday again! This week we are focusing on the variety of ways that God finds to give us nourishment and the strength to keep going. Feel free to send us pictures or videos of what nourishment means to you and we will post them on our social media and feature them in our news sheet! #nctmlent21 #lent

Tune Tuesday Nourishment 020321.mp4

Tune Tuesday: 2nd March 2021

NOURISHMENT: It’s Tune Tuesday and this week we have chosen “Cornerstone” by Hillsong worship. We have posted the lyrics for the first verse and chorus so you can sing along with us here. Feel free to find the whole song and listen to it in full. The words are so meaningful for the nourishment that God provides for the soul.

Sing along with us:

“My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly trust in Jesus’ name

Christ alone cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Savour’s love

Through the storm he is Lord

Lord of all” #nctmlent21 #lent

Wild Wednesday: 3rd March 2021

NOURISHMENT: Wild Wednesday - this week why not try putting out some bird seed, nuts or meal worms for the small creatures who share our local area? Sharing nourishment with those who need a little extra help to find it is always beneficial on both sides #nctmlent21 #lent

Craft Thursday: 4th March 2021

NOURISHMENT: For craft Thursday this week, we invite you to think about 5 things that keep you going, or that provide you with nourishment - this can be food based or nourishment for your mind, soul and heart! Draw around your hand (or get someone to help you) and draw a picture of one thing that keeps you going in each finger (don’t forget the thumb)! Then colour your design in however you like. You can use this as a tool to aid your prayer, and say thank you to God for these things. Things that keep me going are:

• Ice cream

• Sunshine

• Lasagne

• Family and Friends

• Reading and Learning

Send a picture of your finished designs to us and we will share them with the community on our social media and weekly news sheet! #nctmlent21 #lent

Food Friday: 5th March 2021

NOURISHMENT: Food Friday! For this week we have a recipe for Soda Bread! It’s a super simple recipe (all credit to Jack Monroe) which anyone can try. Children, make sure you have a grownup to help you with the oven! God is the bread of life 🍞 Send us pictures of your bread baking! We would love to see how you get on #nctmlent21 #lent

Social Saturday: 6th March 2021

NOURISHMENT: it’s Social Saturday! This evening our game is more of a little challenge... try putting a biscuit on your forehead (dry biscuits without chocolate work the best as they won’t stick!) and without using your hands, try to wriggle it down to your mouth! It’s harder than it looks but you get a tasty reward at the end 😁 #nctmlent21 #lent
