Lent: Christ in the Wilderness
(Matthew 4:1-9)

This teaching activity is closely based on a Barnabas in Churches idea.


  1. The children are invited to the front for a short introduction to Lent and the idea of preparing for Easter by facing up to our temptations.
  2. The story of Jesus in the wilderness is read in stages, whilst children are invited to put various props on a little stage that has been prepared.
  3. The children are invited to reflect on Jesus' responses to temptation, and on what this might mean for us today.
