Breaking Bread - Holy Communion Retreat

  • Breaking Bread

    This afternoon retreat is for children in primary school preparing for the Sacrament of Holy Communion and those in their class who are on the journey of faith with them . The retreat is designed to be held at a time before the Sacrament and not as a celebration afterwards. Following three structured sessions; Setting the Table, Breaking Bread and You're Invited, the retreat is packed with music, prayer, activities and sharing, designed to enlighten, strengthen and prepare the faith of all those taking part.

  • An Afternoon Retreat

    This lovely retreat is designed as an afternoon off-curriculum retreat. It begins with a short film before lunch from Dan and Emily to say hi and prepare the children for their afternoon, followed by the main retreat after lunch.

  • Enjoy the Retreat with your class

    All the work has been done for you by OneLife Music, meaning there is very little for the lead teacher to do! The first chapter on the platform will provide them with a Planner, Attachments and Teachers note and the rest is led for you on the platform. Everything has been thoughtfully structured to allow the children a time to pray, sing, share and enjoy activities and because it is pre-recorded, you can make your purchase and hold the retreat on an afternoon that is best for you.

Get everything ready for us there - So they prepared the Passover.

|Mark 14:13,15-16.|

Jesus sent two of His disciples and told them, “Go into the city. You will meet a man carrying a jug of water. He will take you upstairs and show you a large room. The room will be completely furnished. Get everything ready for us there” The disciples left. They went onto the city and found everything as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover
