Places of worship free lesson plan keystage 2

  1. 1. There are 3 alternatives for this Lesson [1] Pretend that the classroom is a church and run through some of the elements that make up a church service. [2] Organize a visit to a local Church. (These can be found in the yellow Pages under 'Places of Worship’.) [3] Visit: www.request.org.uk/main/churches/buildings/buildings.htm then click on the menu which says: 'Church Buildings' and follow it right through to it's end by pressing the 'next' buttons. (It's got a lot of good pictures showing the comparisons between an Anglican Church and a Baptist Church). Then follow 'Things you may find in a Church Building.’ Also you could use Worksheet 3. This has pictures of some things which may be found in a Church building and has a Church layout.

  2. 2. Take note: 'Church' is not only a building but a group of Christians meeting together. Christians can worship God anywhere, so a church building is not essential to worship. Does the design of a Church building create a certain atmosphere? [ii]
  3. 3. Set out part of the classroom like an Anglican Church We need some participants: A vicar A steward Musicians The congregation 1) The Vicar is in the vestry (a room next to the main church area). 2) The musicians are playing some music. 3) The congregation comes in through the porch and are greeted by the steward. 4) The people sit on the pews. (Many churches don't have pews, they have ordinary chairs instead). 5) The Vicar walks from the vestry and welcomes everyone from the front. 6) The Vicar will now lead the Service. (The order of the Service may be taken word for word from a Prayer Book by the Vicar or person taking the service, or just a few items can be read and the rest will be more informal and not set. A regular custom is for the wording in plain type to be said by the leader, and bold type said by the congregation) [iii]
  4. 4. [iv] 7. The Vicar could say a declaration: “Christ the light of the world, has come to dispel the darkness of our hearts. In his light let us examine ourselves and confess our sins.” 8. A song or hymn can be sung by everyone. The next slide has a hymn from YouTube. (You don’t have to play all of it. After it has finished, press the ‘Escape’ key and then carry on with the slides). Everyone tends to stand up to sing the songs:
  5. 5. [iv] 9. A Creed can be said by the congregation (which is a declaration of faith). Many people stand up to say a Creed. This is an example of a Creed: “Let us declare our faith in God.” “We believe in God the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. We believe in God the Son, who lives in our hearts through faith, and fills us with his love. We believe in God the Holy Spirit, who strengthens us with power from on high. We believe in one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.”
  6. 6. 10) The Vicar gives a talk (known as a sermon or message), which should be based on a reading from the Bible. In the past, this sermon was given from the pulpit, but often now the Vicar remains where he or she is. 11) Many churches are family friendly and have a children’s talk which you can listen to on the next slide from YouTube: Also, there can be a children’s song. One is on the slide after the children’s talk: [i] [v]
  7. 7. He’s the King of Kings, He’s the Lord of Lords He can heal the sick, He can calm the storm He’s the Son of God, He can save us from sin And He calls us to follow Him Jesus met a man covered in disease Knew he needed to be clean Jesus just touched him The disease was gone “Only God can do that!” Who is this man?

He’s the King of Kings, He’s the Lord of Lords He can heal the sick, He can calm the storm He’s the Son of God, He can save us from sin And He calls us to follow Him Yes He calls us to follow Him. Are you gonna follow Him?. Paul Sheely © 1998 Emu Music Australia, Inc. Emu Music Ltd CD The King, the Snake & the Promise
  8. 8. [i] 12) The Vicar ends the service. Here’s an example prayer: “Be with us Lord, as we go out into the world. May the lips that have sung Your praises, always speak the truth; may the ears which have heard Your Word, listen only to what is good, and may our lives as well as our worship, be always pleasing in Your sight, for the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen ” 13) Everyone leaves the church. Often everyone goes to have a drink, biscuits and a chat! This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-SA-NC [vi]
  9. 9. [vii] Roman Catholic Churches tend to be very ornate, they have a lot of visual things like statues and the services are very formal and set, being written in a book. Some Anglican Churches can be very similar to this, whilst others have fairly plain buildings and may have informal services. How different Churches do things:
  10. 10. [viii] The Methodist, Baptist, United Reform Churches (and others) tend to meet in buildings which don't have a spire or tower, and often the building is known as a 'Chapel’. The services are not read from a book, although many are very set by traditions, whilst others have informal services. Many new, non-traditional, Christian groups meet in schools and halls with very informal services. In other words, there are many different Churches which do the same things in different ways!
  11. 11. [ix] How should you behave in a place of worship? Show respect to God You should be able to express joy Show excitement Be sorrowful in quietness Aim to not offend other people
