Online Services

Each Sunday we broadcast our 10:45 service of Family Worship. The live stream will normally start shortly before the service is scheduled to begin so as to give you time to get setup for the beginning of the service. Our services are broadcast on YouTube.

Easter Activities

For several years we’ve enjoyed welcoming hundreds of families into church as our contribution to the Always Ashton Easter and Halloween trails. Unfortunately we can’t do that this year due the Coronavirus restrictions. Instead we hope this resource will help families to enjoy this time safely together. You’ll find sheets to colour, videos to watch, crafts to try, a maze to solve and a word search.

What is Easter?

Easter is one of the most important celebrations in the Christian calendar. At Easter we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. After His crucifixion, death, and burial, on Good Friday, Jesus rose from the grave. In doing so, He conquered death and redeemed us from sin if we believe in Him. This BBC video explains things in more detail.


Here are some ideas for crafts which you might like to try. If you complete any of the activities then please send in pictures to and we will share them on our Facebook page. You might also want to put them in your window for other people to see.

Colouring Sheet

If you have access to a printer then you might like to print off the colouring sheet and have a go at it.

Word Search

Again if you have access to a printer then why not try this Easter word search?

An Easter Prayer

Finally, please say this prayer with your family.

Dear God
Thank you for giving us such good gifts.
For our families who love us.
For yummy food and tasty drink.
For so many different beautiful animals.
For parks with tall trees and soft grass.
For birds that fly among the clouds.
For seas and streams that are fun to paddle in.
And thank you for your son Jesus.
We like to read about him in the bible.
He taught his disciples about you.
He healed people who were sick.
He walked on water,
And even died and came back to life.
Help us to remember all the things he did
And celebrate him on this special day.
