Advent Offering 2019 | Homelessness & Hospitality


The theme for this year is “Homelessness & Hospitality”. At the heart of this year’s Advent Offering are the personal stories of people with experience of homelessness, who are being helped by the Bristol Methodist Centre. You can download resources from the Methodist Church website .



The materials range from the traditional – such as the popular Candle Liturgy, suggested Bible passages and hymns that complement this year’s theme – to interactive materials such as a video, PowerPoint, and concrete ideas on how you can put your faith in action and help the homeless. There are also role play activities and talking points which are particularly designed to engage children and young people.

JMA Commissioning Service 2019 | Mission for Everywhere


The new JMA Commissioning Service Sheet is now ready for you to download . 



The fresh, new and colourful design for the Service Sheet has been created especially with children in mind. The materials are also available to download in printer-friendly black and white format.

For the first time ever, the JMA Commissioning Service includes an exciting range of accompanying resources:


·         two short videos

·         a mission-focused PowerPoint

·         extra activity worksheets

·         suggested prayers and hymns

·         scripture cards


·         points for discussion

The theme for this JMA Commissioning Service resource is “Mission for Everywhere!” The materials are centred around “mission” and “one body, many parts” and are made to complement each other – however, each resource can also be used as a stand-alone, so feel free to pick and choose as much, or as little, as you like!




The videos feature an inspiring example of mission at home and abroad respectively and can be screened to add an interactive element to your service. The projects featured are Phakamisa in Pinetown, South Africa (Wandering Teachers programme) and a story-telling garden in Bloxwich, West Midlands, which has been created to engage children with the gospel.
