Spill the Beans Issue 25

Here we go with another issue of Spill the Beans packed with ideas for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. This continues our journey through the fourth year of the Narrative Lectionary cycle.

Issue 25 covers from the first Sunday in Advent, 3 December 2017, to Transfiguration Sunday on 11 February 2018.

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.
