Praying the Lord's Prayer

Even young children can pray the prayer that Jesus taught us.  Have a go as a family at learning the Lord's Prayer together with these short clips.  We'd love to see some of your photos of the craft activities you have made.


Our Father in Heaven                                  Hallowed be your name   


Your Kingdom Come ...                             Give us today our daily bread


Forgive us our sins ...                                Lead us not into temptation...






For the Kingdom the power and the glory ...
