Emergency Housegroup Leaders Kit Of Ideas

Imagine the situation: You’re hosting your church home group, and the person leading the Bible study doesn’t turn up. What do you do? You could ditch the bible study, have a quick chat and get on with your lives? (But no one ever seems to want to do that)

Lots Of BiblesOr you could lead a bible study anyway? But what is your bible study going to be about? To help get you started here are our Emergency Housegroup Leaders Kit Of Ideas!

  1. You’re going to need an energy kick to get through this. All the cool kids seem to drink Monster…
  2. Bibles. Have lots and lots of Bibles! Hand them out. Get people to read a verse or twenty at random. Ask people what they think about said random verses.
  3. An impressive Bible book. Unlocking The Bible is one…
  4. Buy and bring a local business a present. Explain that you wanted to bring them a present to encourage them.
  5. Bible Through Lego! Use Lego characters to tell Biblical truths. Or something…
  6. Ask everyone to give an encouraging Bible verse to the person on the left. Give them all a chalk pen to take home with them to write the Bible verse on a mirror at home. (You can use the Encouraging Bible Verse Picker for help)
  7. Ask deep searching questions about these unfortunate Bible verses. (Examples of questions you can ask include “How do these verses speak into your life?”)
  8. Got some cushions? Get everyone to lay down, and “wait on God” / Pray / meditate / sleep / whatever…
  9. A video clip of someone talking about God. Saves you from having to do it…
  10. Just drag everyone down to the pub, and buy them all a pint.

Any other ideas you’d like to add?

The Christianity Exam. The Second Paper.

What if… You joined a new Church, but before you were allowed to settle there, you had to prove you were a Christian? What they ask you questions about the Bible? Would they make you sit an exam about Bible things, to prove you’re a Christian?

We wondered last year what a Christian Exam Paper would look like… but what if you managed to pass that?

What would a second Christian Exam Paper look like?

How about something like this?

The Christianity Exams have been inspired by this BBC Report, into how Christian converts seeking asylum into the UK are treated by the Home Office.
