Christmas school assembly ideas

Damaris Trust is a wonderful organization that creates resources for evangelism. Their goal is to relate the Bible message to popular culture, including using movies to explore the theme of redemption.

This year, Damaris have once again received permission to use snippets from the British film Nativity! Using this as a starting point, they have created ideas for a primary school Christmas season assembly.

When you visit the Christmas assembly page  you can click to open up the elements you wish to use and have a PDF made of those parts.
There is also a PowerPoint presentation to use and ideas for drama, singing and a time of reflection.

To view the Damaris suggestions and pick up the PowerPoint, visit the Collective worship for Christmas page.

    Free Christmas Powerpoint game: Cookie Count


    Christmas Cookie count free Powerpoint gameFree PowerPoint Christmas game - Cookie CountChristmas Cookie Count is a simple but effective PowerPoint game. It can be played quickly as a stand-alone game, or used effectively as a review game after a Bible lesson.

    Here’s how it works…

    • Two teams play alternately
    • After answering a review question correctly and being awarded points (we suggest 50 for a correct answer) the first team chooses a cookie. It is fun to have them describe the cookie, rather than simply point to it. This encourages the children’s powers of expression.
    • The PowerPoint operator then clicks once on the selected cookie.
    • that cookie will slide off the screen and a Bonus Score will then be revealed and should be added to the score so far.
    • The next team will win their chance to play by answering a review question.
    • They then choose their cookie and the revealed score is added to their total.
    • The game continues until all the cookies have gone, or the time alotted has finished.
    • The winning team is the one with the highest score.

    RIGHT-click on the links below to download the PowerPoint and save it to your computer.

    If you do not have the PowerPoint program on your computer, you can still enjoy the game by downloading the PPS version. This is a self playing version which will start and fill your screen. Use the mouse to click and advance the slides, and then click on the cookies in the usual way.

    Is Christmas a Myth or Truth?

    We made this PowerPoint teaching available a year ago. It was one of the first items we uploaded onto this blog.

    Since then, many more visitors have joined us here, so it seems apt to flag it up again, as older blogs can sink to the bottom of the archives!

    Myth or Truth? is a  PowerPoint presentation which may be used as one element in a service, or as the basis of a small group Bible study.

    It is a brief introduction to the main areas of evidence which prove that Jesus is the promised Messiah, Saviour of all who trust in him.
    Develop this as you wish. It is absolutely free to download.

    A script is provided in PDF format, to guide you through the slides.
