Items needed: bibles, 3 mars bars, pens, paper and the small group sheets (click to download)
Aims: To explore the concept of the trinity and look at the roles of the different parts
Start the session with a game
Introduction: Today we’re going to be exploring the trinity and the roles of the different part…but first a challenge!
Mars Bar Challenge: Have three mars bars and three volunteers tell each they can eat their mars but but only one part (caramel, noughet or chocolate)…see how they do!
Explain: The first thing we need to remember about the trinity is like the mars bar they are 3 in 1. Each part of the Trinity is very different yet you cannot separate one from the other, the same way you cannot just eat part of the mars bar.
Ask: So what are the three parts of the trinity? (Father, Son, Holy Spirit)
Groups: Split into three groups and give each group a bible and the study sheets which give passages to help each group explore an aspect of the trinity.
Feedback: Bring the groups back together and feedback the different roles of the Trinity
Questions: Any questions?
Pray: Close by praying, thanking God the Father for Jesus and for sending his Holy Spirit
