The outdoors lends itself to worship, with God's creation all around. The Bible is also full nature references and metaphors. The seven prayer stations in this set are based on things you may find in a garden; trees, flowers, water, hills, thorns, fruit and earth. Engage Worship have a section here specifically for outdoor worship:

Faith at Home

is the Church of England's campaign to support finding and following God in everyday life - at work or school; connecting with friends and family; in the tasks we do around the house and the ways we relax and recharge. There will be a growing number of resources and links posted in the coming weeks.

Enjoy the poem 'Thank you- you're enough' and the Faith at Home animation as well as resources here:

Thy Kingdom Come

is a prayer season between Ascension and Pentecost. We have produced a number of resources to help children and families engage with this, all of which are ideal in lockdown.

The Family Prayer Adventure Journal is a beautifully illustrated journey through the themes of TKC. It features Bible stories, activities and prayer ideas to help you pray at home. As well as bulk discounts on the physical books, we're also offering PDF versions for the first time. You can buy a licence to legally share these via email with large groups such as school classes, toddler groups or your Sunday School.

Alongside the journal is an 11-session Podcast. This has songs, games, interactive Bible stories and an engaging prayer moment. It is free to download from all your favourite podcast apps, or stream from Engage Worship here:
