Transformation for children, young people, and the Church
2012 is Olympic and Paralympic year for London - and you won't be able to escape it! Ben Mizen, Children and Youth Adviser for Portsmouth Diocese, has put together a selection of online resources and downloads which have an Olympic theme. He writes:
What are you planning to do next summer with the Olympics being held in our lovely nation? Not everyone has tickets for the main events but there are plenty of opportunities for churches to engage with their communitiesusing this grand occasion as a theme for activities. Some of you may want to run a holiday club, some a special sports event and others a special service. One thing is for sure is that summer 2012 will be buzzing with excitement and opportunities for us to engage with the big event and be the Gospel!
So for those of you who like to plan ahead here are some links to ideas and resources with an Olympic theme that you might find useful. And if you come across more, please let us know so that we can add them in. (There's even a map of all the Paralympic Venues in London!)
