Good Morning!

You can join in our Sunday Celebration from here, on Facebook Live from 10:30am or from our YouTube Channel.

Thanks so much for joining us. All of our weekly celebration is now in one video.

Time to Pray

We would love to give you an opportunity to respond to what was shared this morning. If you are watching this with your children, encourage them to get involved with the prayer response too.

  • What stood out for you in Soroush's talk?
  • Who do you need to forgive right now? Come to God and ask him for the strength to forgive.
  • Pray that as a church we would not settle in this season and in faith, keep moving into all God would have us do. 

For Children

What did Joseph's bones represent to the Hebrews in Egypt?

Joseph showed his faith when he instructed that his bones should be buried in Egypt. Joseph's bones were a symbol of hope to the Hebrews, as they became enslaved by the Egyptians. This powerful symbol pointed them to a time when a deliverer would come and take them out of Egypt, into the Promised Land - and they would take Joseph's bones with them. 


Secret of the Prince's Tomb, Imagination Station book 7 (A Focus on the Family Book) by Marianne Hering and Marshal Younger.

This story helps to bring alive this verse in Hebrews 11:22.  The Imagination Station take Patrick and Beth back in time to Egypt when the Hebrews become enslaved by the Egyptians.  The link below gives a plot summary of the story. Read the plot to the story here.

Memory verse/craft

"By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones." Hebrew 11:22 (NIV)

Joseph was buried in Egypt.  Make a pyramid to represent Joseph's bone's staying in Egypt - until they would be taken with the Hebrews into the Promised Land.  Write the memory verse on it.

Use the video below to try making an origami pyramid!

Or you try making a pyramid out of card board (cereal box) following the steps in this link here.


Ellie Holcomb - 'He will' - This song is about our Lord who brings hope and fulfils His promises.


A periscope helps you to see things that would otherwise be out of sight!  You can use it to look around walls, corners or other obstacles.  Submarines have periscopes so that people inside can what is on the surface of the water. (Adapted from: and

This experiment illustrates how the Hebrews were looking to Joseph's bones as a symbol of hope (mirror 1) and the bones pointed to the future deliverance from enslavement in Egypt via the Exodus (mirror 2).

Look at the photo of the periscope below and instructions to make it from the 'Usbourne Book of Science Activities volume 1'. Oat biscuit boxes are a good size and shape. As an adaption, if you have two small make up mirrors - put a small ruler through the slit at each end of the periscope and stick the mirror with a look of tape behind it!



Dear Lord God, I thank you for this story about Joseph giving instructions about his bones.  It demonstrates his faith in you, as he believed that one day the Hebrews would leave Egypt and go the Promised Land as you promised.  Lord, please help us to be filled with faith and hope in you.  Help us to be absolutely sure that you are faithful, and you keep your promises.  Amen. 

Want to know more about want it means to become a Christian?

Becoming a Christian is about following Jesus and starting a friendship with him. Watch this short video below which explains more.

We also love Alpha here at Jubilee! Alpha is a great way to explore some of the big questions of life as well as looking at what the Christian faith has to say about them. You can read more about Alpha at Jubilee here. If you want to watch the first session of Alpha click here.

You can also contact us if you'd like to talk with someone about becoming a Christian or just want to know more!

Want to Give?

We know that a number of you give on a Sunday morning through the collection. There's still an opportunity to give through our giving page. Alternatively you can find all the details there to make a gift through your bank.

Stay in touch

More than ever, this is a time to encourage, support and pray for each other. Please do contact those people you know or that might need extra help. If you want to contact one of the leadership team, use the contact us page and one of us will be in touch.

If you're new to Jubilee, we're super-excited you could join us today. Feel free to contact us if you'd like more information and do join us again next week!
