Welcome to HTkids@home, we hope you are feeling creative and ready to build on a firm foundation with our Bible story this week!

Last week, we learned how fun finger painting can be…and how MESSY! Through the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den, we learned that when we have messes we just can’t clean up, God wants us to give those messes to him so he can do the clean-up.

The kids rose to the challenge in our ‘HTkids Challenge Accepted’ segment…some excellent cleaning up of messes at home, and some very happy parents!!  Jump on to our YouTube channel and check them out!  

This week in our ‘Bible Art’ series it’s all about building on a firm foundation…even if it is with icy pole sticks! Tune in to our Bible story; when we build our life on God’s Word, we will be prepared for any storms that may come our way!

Welcome to HTkids@home. We hope you are feeling creative and ready to discover another awesome Bible story this week!

Last week, we learned how creative our God is…He created the world in just six days!

The kids really rose to the challenge in our ‘HTkids Challenge Accepted’ segment…some amazing, creative, never before seen creatures…all modelled from clay or play doh. You can check them all out on our YouTube channel and on this page! I think the parents are really going to love this week’s new challenge! Playdoh

This week in our ‘Bible Art’ series it’s all about messes…finger painting gets really messy, but that’s half the fun in creating wonderful artwork. Tune in to see who our Bible story is about, and to learn that when we let God into our “messy” situations, he will turn them into something wonderful!

Trini the vicarage possum is back to help us with this week’s story and has some really good questions about ‘messes’. 
 

18/7/20

Welcome back to HTkids@home, we hope you have enjoyed your break and are feeling creative and ready to discover some more awesome stories from the Bible!

This week we start our new series ‘Bible Art’, and we have some new friends joining us.

This is Trini, the vicarage possum and she lives in the big tree at the front of the vicarage.

I have it on very good authority that Trini used to live IN the roof at the vicarage... and, from time to time, would make an appearance INSIDE the house!!…I’m so glad she has decided to make the tree her home!  

Trini will be joining us each week, and we will be following her adventures, so look out for her!  Trini the possum

Another exciting thing for kids church is we’ll be adding some new and different segments each week, AND we’ve introduced a weekly challenge to do…it might be crafty, it might be creative…but it’s sure to be fun!  Look out for it near the end of our program where we’ll tell you all about this week’s HTkids CHALLENGE!

You can find HTkids@home on YouTube; just click the link or search Holy Trinity Hampton. If you would like to be included in the HTkids craft mailout, or know someone who would, please contact us and we'll add you to the list!

volunteerWe’ve been having lot of fun bringing HTkids to you via YouTube and learning new skills too!  We would love to have some younger people as part of our team (…if you have teenagers…?). If you know someone who might like to be involved with videoing, production or content please contact Ross😊  

 

11/07/20

We will be back next weekend - stay tuned - stay well!

04/07/20

Our HTkids@home is taking a break for the school holidays!  You can still find HTkids@home on YouTube or here on the website, and binge watch all the ones you may have missed😊 Just scroll down, or in YouTube search Holy Trinity Hampton and subscribe…so you don’t miss out on any of our stories! 

Last week we explored ‘Incredible Me!’ where we learned that we are ‘…fearfully and wonderfully made’!  God has created each one of us individually! We might have similarities, but we are created to be different and unique…which is INCREDIBLE! 

We also had another lovely catch up with several families at Thomas Street park.

If you would like to be included in the HTkids craft mailout, or know someone who would, please contact us and we'll add you to the list!

Our next series is ‘Bible Art,’ where we’ll explore getting creative with God…which is sure to be messy, colourful and fun!

In the mean time, why not download this drawing and make a unique flower? Enjoy!

volunteerWe would love to have some younger people as part of our team to bring fresh ideas and to share the load.

If you have teenagers, or know anyone who might be willing to give an hour once or twice a month to have some fun and be involved with content, videoing or production, that would be awesome…please contact Ross😊  

Incredible Me

27/6/20

Our ‘Incredible Faith’ series came to an end last week…with 
the Mightiest Superhero of All…Jesus!! The hero God wants us to put our faith in!

We learned that no one had the faith of Jesus either.  You see, for Jesus to become our greatest hero, he had to become human.  He had to be part of a scary and dangerous plan that God the Father laid out for him to fulfil his destiny and become our mightiest hero!

The kids enjoyed making a Garden of Gethsemane craft, a prayer tree and a multiple choice!

On Sunday, we were very excited to meet up in our own community garden behind the church, with some new friends joining us.  We shared a lovely unicorn cake to celebrate Lara’s birthday😊

This week is all about ‘Incredible Me…fearfully and wonderfully made!’ Psalm 139 tells us that God knows what’s in all of our hearts because he made us. 

 

If you or any teenagers you know is already wonderfully made in the skills of creating content, video making and/or production, or would like to learn, and would like to assist the team creating HT Kids @home for an hour once or twice a month please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Superheroes of the Bible

20/6/20

Well, our HTkids@home ‘Incredible Faith’ series on YouTube has been an amazing, creative, learning, making mistakes (…and learning from them😊) kind of time…and lots of fun! Thank you so much to everyone who is clicking on to view!

Our superhero Zoom auditions have come to an end, and we have met an amazing team of superheroes from the Bible!

Last week’s superhero was faithful to God. Daniel refused to give in and look what happened...God shut the lions mouths and they left him alone!

It’s not always easy to follow God’s ways. We want to do our own thing, and we want to fit in. 

We can ask God to give us not only a faithful heart, but an obedient heart. Choose God’s way, and let God make you a witness, just as he did with Lion Man. 

The kids enjoyed making a (not so scary) lion face, a Colour by Numbers, and a True or False!

On Sunday, we were very excited once again to meet up at Thomas Street park, with some new friends joining us, and a lovely visit from Lucille and Rudi!  This week we’ll be meeting at our Community Garden behind the church…and celebrating Lara’s birthday…with cake😊

This week's superhero is the Mightiest Hero of all…JESUS!  In his darkest hour, Jesus found the faith to fulfill his destiny and become our mightiest hero!  God wants us to put our faith in Jesus. Through Him, we can have the courage to take a stand like Esther, be brave like David and make tough choices like Daniel.

 

13/6/20

Our superhero Zoom auditions are coming to an end, and we will soon have our newest superhero team complete!

Last week’s superhero was very brave! Esther showed us that people of faith are brave enough to stand up for God, even when doing so is scary. God wants us to be brave. He wants us to take a stand, and if we ask him for help, He will give us the words to say and the courage to say them.

The kids enjoyed making Esther’s crown (just can’t beat a bit of glitter😊), colouring in and completing a 'Find the Difference'! If you missed out on these, then download this Esther activity.

On Sunday, we were very excited to meet up at the Thomas Street park, catching up with old friends and new...it was sooo lovely to see everyone!

This week's superhero is all about staying faithful and obedient...even when choosing to obey God and doing what was right meant he risked being killed by lions! Click the link to find out who it is...

6/6/20

Well, last week’s superhero was amazing!  He may be small, but David showed us that he had the courage to take on Goliath, when no one else would! We learned that size doesn’t matter much to the Lord, not when he has work to do. God isn’t looking for faithful adults…He’s looking for faithful people. Even kids can serve God and do great things if they have the faith to trust in the Lord.

The kids enjoyed making David’s pebble pouch, and colouring in and a maze! We also shared a great Zoom morning tea and catchup on Sunday☺  If you missed out on the activities, you might like to download this colour-by-number activity.

Don't forget, if you would like to be included in the HTkids craft mailout, or know someone who would, please contact us and we'll add you to the list!

 We’re excited to be meeting up at the Thomas Street park this Sunday (7/6/20) @ 10.30am for a BYO morning tea…yay!  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

This week's superhero is brave…she was asked to take a stand and risk her own life to save the lives of many other people!  Click the link to find out who it is!

Thank you to all those families checking in to HTkids on YouTube, we hope you are enjoying the ‘Incredible Faith’ series, where we are meeting some amazing superheroes of the Bible!

Our Zoom auditions continue, and we are well on the way to having our newest superhero team ready!

Last week we met Princess of Protection – aka Rahab.  Rahab showed us that faithful people are helpful people. As followers of Christ, we need to be helpful whenever we see someone in need. Superheroes help people. We can be superheroes of faith if we learn to look, listen, and respond to people in need of our help.

The kids enjoyed making Rahab’s wall and window, complete with the escape rope, and colour in and Find the Difference! We also shared a great Zoom morning tea and catchup on Sunday (…we may even look at catching up in a park soon!)☺
If you missed the activities, here's a Rahab wordsearch you can download, and if you would like to be included in the HTkids craft mailout, or know someone who would, please contact us and we'll add you to the list!

This week's superhero is mighty…he may be small, but he didn’t let that stop him!! 

23/5/20

Thank you to all those families checking in to HTkids on YouTube, we hope you are enjoying watching it as much as we are enjoying bringing it to you!

Our hunt for the newest superhero team continues, with Zoom auditions going well!  Last week we auditioned Moses for his place in the team and learned how he led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt.  BUT they were trapped with the Egyptian army behind them, and the Red Sea in front! Because Moses encouraged his people to have faith in God, He parted the waters of the Red Sea and they walked across on dry land!

The kids got to make their own parting of the Red Sea colour in and we shared a great Zoom morning tea and catchup on Sunday...hot chocolate optional☺

This week's superhero is sure to amaze...click the link below to find out who it is!

HTkids@home is off and running and getting some great feedback...and not just from within our parish; kids and parents outside of our parish are enjoying it too!  

We are continuing to explore some amazing Superheroes of the Bible, in the Incredible Faith series.  Last week was all about Abraham, who showed incredible faith through his obedience to God...he packed up, left his home, and travelled to a new land because God asked him to...no ifs or buts, no questions asked!!

The kids got to colour in, and help Abraham pack up his donkey with all his belongings!

We shared a great Zoom morning tea and catchup on Sunday...hot chocolate optional☺

This week's superhero is sure to amaze...read on to find out who it is!

HTkids@home was launched last week with the help of some awesome superheroes of the Bible.  Over the coming weeks, we will be looking at the stories of some amazing people who had Incredible Faith, and showed it by listening to and obeying God!
Last week we learned all about Arkman...aka Noah, and his Incredible Faith in believing in God's plan for him.  The kids got to make a superhero mask, and colour in Noah's Ark!
Hmmm...I wonder who this week's superhero will be?
 
And kids, don't forget it's Mothers' Day on May 10th when everyone give thanks for everyone in their life who has provided motherly support, cuddles and kindness to us. Download the activity sheet after you meet this week's superhero from the Bible. 
 

 

2/5/20

A very big welcome to our new HTkids@home page, where we are discovering our creativity and learning new skills to bring kids church to you!

Over this next period of time, HTkids@home will be exploring a series called

‘Incredible Faith’ and quite a few superheroes of the Bible will help us do that!

Every week the children will receive in the post a pack (how exciting to get something in the mail!) with some simple craft for the HTkids@home session, a quick rundown of that week's super hero, a memory verse and simple prayer.  It also includes a lesson info sheet for parents.

Each Saturday a link will be sent via email to the parents, inviting them to that week’s HTkids@home session, which can then be viewed at the family's convenience.  These are short sessions, which include a kids chat, a short clip of the story (super hero) for that week and a skit...we're discovering our filming and acting skills!! 

The email also includes a second link inviting the kids and parents to a Zoom morning tea catch up each Sunday at 10.30am...hot chocolate & marshmallows optional :)  If the family can make it, fantastic!!  If not, we hope to catch up the next time!

This is a new experience for all of us, and an awesome opportunity to be creative in bringing God’s message to our kids. 

It's a work in progress, which is sure to evolve as the weeks go by…

If you know of any families, grandkids etc who might like to be included, please let us know and we can add them to the email list!

Here’s to exploring our Incredible Faith!!

This week - meet ARKMAN, and you might like to download this colouring in sheet.
