The rocks will cry out
An All Age Palm Sunday Service
Use your imagination to enter into the story of Palm Sunday.
This service is a great way to encourage your whole church to enter into the event of Palm Sunday. It begins by setting the scene as Jesus approaches Jerusalem, providing helpful background details. It also includes:
- Role Play: imagine you are one of the people in the crowd that day. Why have you come to see Jesus?
- Waving of palm branches and laying coats along the front of the church.
- Bible readings
- A reflection activity using rocks, based on this verse:
“I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”
This All Age service is designed so that people can be as involved as they want to be. It provides depth as well as interaction, seeking to bring to life the story in a creative way.
