Time for Thought - A Review

‘Time for Thought’ is the new resource created by URCGSF, and companion to ‘Time for Prayer’.  This pocket-sized booklet offers 24 themed reflection and prayer ideas for use with Guides and Scouts, children and young people.  It will be invaluable to leaders who want to offer a spiritual dimension to their groups and activities.  It is designed to link with themes and experiences that will be part of their normal programme, and will enable them to deepen their engagement and offer a faith perspective.  We have been delighted to be able to give a copy to every URC church with links to Guiding or Scouting, and hope this will enable many more people to connect with the URCGSF.

In response to a suggestion from the URC Guide and Scout Fellowship, a new resource has been developed to help encourage children to pray, whether individually or leading a group prayer. These lovely cards have attractive illustrations which can be used as a stimulus for prayer and on the reverse are a few words, accompanied by Widgit symbols, to provide some words they might use in their prayers. The cards are available online as a downloadable resource for you to print Prayer Prompts for Children and also available free of charge on request from the Children’s and Youth Work office for use with URC children’s groups. We hope soon to be able to offer the download in Welsh too. 

The Fellowship has limited stocks of the new packs of prayer cards produced by URC Children & Youth.  There are two packs, each of 26 cards, with an engaging colourful picture on one side and a related simple prayer idea on the other side.  One pack is aimed at 4-8 year olds, the other for 8-12s.

These are a great resource for Squirrels, Rainbows, Beavers, Cubs and Brownies.

To encourage their widest use, we would like to send a free pack with any new order for badges or woggles over £5, and will send two free packs for orders over £20.
