We had light inspired crafts- scratch art book marks, where the dark is scratched away to reveal the colours beneath and tea light holders made of decorated blank Cds and we also had a few light based prayer stations
The children really engaged with the prayer stations more than the adults did, which surprised me at first, but because their children wanted to do something hands on, sometimes their parents got involved in order to help them. It was great to see the children really entering into what was there!
Another activity was to write prayer requests for those who they wanted God to help:
And we also prayed for places in the city where we would like God's hope and light to shine.
Looking forward to next year!
