Bishop Auckland Methodist Church

Youth Worship Team’s Resources

Commissioned on 1st September 2019 for a new year of service through music, reflection and prayer

Hope, Millie and Hannah all work within the context of Bishop Auckland Methodist Church providing weekly reflections, and ideas for worship, music and prayer.

Each week they produce PowerPoint slides with music and a Creative Prayer idea.  If any churches wish to use these resources, especially those in the Bishop Auckland Fellowship of Christian Churches, whose grant application is enabling their funding this year, they are most welcome. 
If you wish to let us know what you think of their work, please use the comment box below or the comments at the end of each post.

Millie has also put a youtube channel together where she prepares music to play before worship.

Hope has her own website where you can see more of her photography and artwork

    Hannah’s Creative Prayer

    The Bible has lots of names for Jesus…

    Some of them are: Immanuel, Prince of Peace, Ancient of Days, Friend, Servant, The Word, Saviour, Good Shepherd, Rock. 
    Which name for Jesus means the most to you at the moment?
    What does it really mean to you?
    What does this tell you about Jesus?
    How could this help you to love and trust Jesus?

    Hannah’s Creative Prayer

    This week I chose a 5 finger prayer.
    Start with your thumb and work round to your little finger.
    Hold your thumb and prayer for family and friends.
    Hold your next finger and prayer for leaders and teachers.
    Hold your next finger and prayer for the government and authority.
    Hold your next finger and prayer for the weak or sick
    and finally hold your little finger and pray for yourself.

    Hannah’s Creative Prayer

    Imagine you are seeing Jesus for the first time after him rising from the dead  just as Thomas did.
    Would you believe he had risen before you saw him?
    What would you say to him?
    What might Jesus say to you?
    Would you want to touch him, as he invited Thomas to do?

    Hannah’s Creative Prayer

    Hope that you and the congregation are both well. 

    This week I did my first teaspoon (tsp) prayer on a youth Zoom meeting. We managed to pray about a range on things so I thought it could be a good idea for this weeks prayer.

    T-thank you: Here you could thank God for Easter and all that it means and stands for
    S-sorry: Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Ask God for forgiveness for the wrong you have done
    P-please: Here you could ask God for help and guidance, especially at this difficult time

    Happy Easter!

    Verse: Philippians 2:5-11

    Create your own personal image of Jesus. When you read scripture, how do you imagine him looking? This image may be based on films, stained-glass windows or art images that you have seen, or perhaps on long-help personal ideas of how Jesus may have looked.

    Using you own ideas of the image of Christ, begin to pray to him as you Lord and Saviour, giving thanks for the many things he has taught you as well as the stories he told and the man he was, as recorded in the scripture. 

    Consider some ways in which you would like to deepen or renew your relationship with Jesus. Pray these though and ask him to guide you. 

    Remember that Jesus died on the cross, but also that he rose in glory.

    Pray for a renewed sense of Jesus’ resurrection power for you personally, and an understanding of how it can inform you onward journey with God.

    How might it affect the part you play in the body of Christ, your church, and your local community as you serve God where you are?
