Spill the Beans Issue 26

First things first: my apologies for this issue being close to the wire. Alas, a nasty bug in the post-Christmas season caused the delays for my part. But we are here with a big issue, 144 pages full of resources and ideas for Lent-Easter-Pentecost. This covers us to the end of the formal Narrative Lectionary cycle, though we will have one more issue covering the summer which will also use the suggested reading from the Narrative Lectionary team.

Issue 26 covers from the first Sunday in Lent, 18 February 2018, to Pentecost Sunday on 20 May 2018.

Created by folks here in Scotland, this issue has lots of ideas and resources for you to inspire, adapt, use in leading worship 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.
