Welcome to Jumping Fish!
It was a privilege to be invited to share news of our more recent publications, which specifically focus on Advent and Christmas.
Jumping Fish publications are produced primarily to support those working with children in both the school and church setting, yet they are also used within a wider range of contexts. These publications are designed to help bring alive stories and spirituality central to the Christian faith.
The Experience Journeys set of resources are an exciting way to explore Christian festivals. Visitors are invited to travel around stations set up in the church building or outdoor space and have opportunities to reflect through multi-sensory activities on parts of the festival in focus.
Whilst the Experience Journeys were originally designed to be hosted by a church community for their local primary schools, churches often choose to keep the displays in place and open the church during the days following schools visits, so that their own members or external visitors can experience the journey. The journeys can also be held in other locations, such as halls or classrooms.
Experience Christmas looks at the nativity story whilst Experience Advent focuses on preparing for Christmas through the meaning of the Advent wreath. Both resources provide sets of cards giving a colour photograph of each station along with detailed instructions of how to create the stations, as well as careful directions to help the group leaders explore each part of the story Each station also includes a reflective, multi-sensory activity.
Jumping Fish are delighted to work in partnership with the Diocese of Gloucester, sharing the vision of LIFE from John 10:10 (NIV)
I have come that they may have LIFE, and have it to the full.
