Spring Harvest 2015 report
We had a fab time at Spring Harvest Minehead 2 over the Easter weekend. It is always a great place to engage with God as a family. This year we had the privilege of leading worship for the 5-7 year-olds in the morning (singing, among other things, Words Are Not Enough by BIG Ministries). We also led some all-age sessions in the afternoon;
- a Good Friday service for all the family, featuring modular prayer-station bags which we posted here, and
- an 'Engaging with the Bible as a Family' session, which we've written up with resource links here.
In the evenings we hosted the Hub Alternative Celebration, with worship leader Sue Rinaldi and our buddies from the Bless Network being creative. Each night we used an opening/closing prayer, paraphrased from Eph 3:14-21 and available here. We also did a creative response on the first night, which involved groups discussing highs and lows of the last year, and also what they wanted to get from Spring Harvest this year. They wrote these on pieces of cellophane and tissue paper, and then brought them to a light-box at the front where they were collaged together. Over the other nights this collage was adapted -it became the hands of God and Adam on night two, then became a tree for night three, and on the final day had green leaves (as this was Resurrection Sunday). You can see some pics of this below.
