We hope this email finds you well, as we make our journey through Holy Week.

May the power of the Cross, the joy of the resurrection, and the presence of our risen Lord be with you, now and always.

The Strandz Team 

Last minute Easter

We have been adding ideas to our Lent and Easter page, so check out the Maundy Thursday family talk, the Good Friday family service and ideas for Easter Sunday. Make sure to send us in photos of your ideas and resources you love or have created! 
Lent, Holy Week and Easter ideas on our website

Ninja resourcing

Our Strandz children's ministry planners have been flying out of the office so quickly we had to do a reprint! We have sold over 120 in a month, and are working with Messy Church and Anglican Schools to develop their own planning pads too. Order your own planner for $10 here

Resurrection Calendar

A Resurrection Journey is an online, multimedia journey from Palm Sunday all the way to Pentecost, created by the Diocese of Auckland. This calendar begins on Palm Sunday, journeys through Holy Week to Easter Day and then encompasses the entire Easter Season, right up to Pentecost.

Thy Kingdom Come

'Thy Kingdom Come' is a global prayer initiative running for 10 days from 25th May - 4 June. They have lots of good ideas on their website, and we've just linked to their 'Bright prayer ideas for families at home' resource today. Well worth a look!

Easter Competition!

Email us with your favourite Easter resource, telling us why it worked so well in your church or ministry unit, and you could be in with a chance to win a copy of the new purple Explore Together Resource Book! Our winner will be announced on Facebook and in the next Strandz newsletter
