Game - Follow Me: ‘Seek the fish’

An idea that kids as they come in...

This is an idea that children can be doing before the programme has actually started, as they come in.

You can use it for example with the story of Peter who has been fishing all night and hasn’t caught anything. The following day Jesus helps him to catch lots of fish and even calls him to become a fisher of men.
