Spill the Beans Issue 24

We start the fourth year of the Narrative Lectionary cycle, the final year which has John's gospel as its focus, and the Spill the Beans Resource Team has got the next issue for the autumn ready. I've finished putting it all together today and so it is out as I need a holiday!

Issue 24 covers the second half of the Pentecost season from Pentecost 14 to the end of the church calendar on Reign of Christ Sunday, from 10 September to 26 November 2017. As we journey with the Hebrew people through the autumn we do so under the thematic signpost marked "Go!"

As always, created by folks here in Scotland as a labour of love, this issue has lots of ideas and resources for you to inspire, adapt, use in a worship setting or for age groups in Junior Churches and youth groups. If you have not used Spill the Beans before then have a look at this sample.

If you'd like to download a full copy of Issue 24 for use in your church or personally, then click the 'Buy' button below. The cost is only £12 (GBP). You can make a secure payment via PayPal and then an email with secure link to the download should wing its way to you. Please note that you can only download the file using this link three times, so please make sure you save the file to your computer or tablet.

Please follow the instructions carefully. The Adobe pdf file is approximately 4 MB so it may take some time to download.
