The Birth of John the Baptist:
June 24th


  1. Invite the children to the front and explain that today is the day when we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist. Talk a bit about his birth and who he was.
  2. Why was water so important to John? There is a very good idea by Lucy Moore for wondering at water's properties, on the Bible Reading Fellowship's Barnabas website.
  3. Talk about the meaning of baptism: you could invite the children to gather round the font for this. Could your priest be available for this part of the teaching?
  4. Read the story of Jesus' baptism from a children's Bible.
