Written from the perspective of those individuals working in Commonwealth countries- whereby "religion" and "Christianity" is part of the national syllabus. Some churches have good links with their local primary school. You may already do
assemblies on a regular basis and invite pupils to visit your church. If so, we hope
that these Easter materials will enhance your relationship with the school and help
you to provide a valuable learning experience for pupils.

EASTER – CELEBRATING THE NEW LIFE OF JESUS
Introduction
In this pack you will find assembly outlines, instructions for how to run a half-day ofworkshops in your church and artefacts to use to bring the Easter story alive.These resources will equip you to:
lead an assembly in your local primary school in the fortnight before Easter
welcome classes of pupils into your church for a half-day of workshops on theEaster story during Holy Week
return to the school for an assembly on the resurrection after Easter.There are of course lots of ways to use these resources. You don’t have to do allthree of these suggestions. Some churches might just do one assembly as the firstcontact with a local school. Some who have regular input into a school might chooseto use the workshop ideas over the course of the spring term. You may want to runhalf the workshops on one day in the church, and half on another day in the school.But we hope that hundreds of churches in the London Diocese will capitalise on thisfantastic opportunity and communicate the real story of Easter to the children in theirparish. Read on to find out how to use these resources, and then decide what’s mostappropriate for your church.
