Here’s a little quarterly booklet packed full of useful ideas for Sunday-by-Sunday preparation where all ages are in church together. If you think Scripture Union materials are not your thing, I urge you to think again as the material really provides exciting ways of engaging with the Sunday readings without costing an arm and a leg.
A bonus feature is the number of links provided which enable you to download reprintable materials for free.
There is also a larger publication called the “All Age Service Annual” which provides material for thematic services (rather than lectionary based ones).
St Stephen’s Onerahi LSM have purchased this material and are already putting the ideas to use. The booklet should arrive within a week of ordering from the Scripture Union site (you’ll need a credit card).

This quarterly volume makes the approach and expertise of Scripture Union’s market-leading Light resources available to those churches using a lectionary to explore and teach the Bible in their all-age worship services.
Each volume contains 15 all-age service outlines with nine or ten elements organised under the headings of ‘Bible’, ‘Prayer’ and ‘Helpful Extras’. Light for the Lectionary is compatible with both the Revised Common Lectionary and the ‘Common Worship’ lectionary used by Church of England.
