Even more Easter videos...well at least one


This is the final drop of Easter videos. Enjoy.


The Skit Guys who I mentioned in a previous post have this little video that would be very suitable for exploring the events of Holy Week with very small children.




That's it. Do you have any you'd like to share? Let us know.

More Easter Videos



This is a great short video put out by Oneness Videos. The full HD version can be bought from their site http://onenessvideos.com/


The Skit guys have made this cute little video. It may not be suitable for worship but it could be useful in the lead up to Easter in the classroom. It can be bought from the Skit Guys website: skitguys.com




This one is from Hyper Pixels Media. It has a different but interesting style.

Easter 2015 on Video


It is that time of year again when I drop all the Easter videos for those people madly putting together their Easter worship for the last week of school. Here are some from last year. If you have any great videos send a link in the comments section.







This video is wonderful and has a beautiful comic touch. To me it reveals the real humanity of Jesus followers. I particularly like the quote: Well, everyone's faster than Peter. This one is made by Invision Media and sold by Worship House Media


Hyper Pixels Media also have some interesting Easter videos.




I like the dramatic intensity of this one. The graphics are in a very particular style that I am not overly fond of but I love how the music is like an action film preview.




...and I had to throw in the Jesus social media video. This one always affects me.

What's the word on mission in Anglican schools?


I am very excited about the creation of this new blog called "a place for mission". It's focus is on exploring mission and ministry in Anglican schools in Australia and beyond. There will be posts each week from contributors from around the country (and hopefully from other places as well). There are three articles up already.

Traffik Free Easter


This post comes courtesy of Jen Basham, Research Specialist - Mission and Social Justice with Anglicare Southern Queensland.

Much of the chocolate in Easter Eggs (in Australia as well as overseas), is made with cocoa from plantations on the Ivory Coast, West Africa, that use trafficked children as young as 10 years old as labour.

Today we're inviting you to join in 4 simple actions you can take to help make this Easter a #traffikfreeEaster. 

1. Sign the petition. Let your voice be heard loud and clear with this petition to Coles and Woolworths asking them to double their Easter range for next year: Add your name here


2. Ask us for some STOP THE TRAFFIK Easter cards (if you are near Brisbane) to take into your local supermarket (src@anglicanchurchsq.org.au

3. Look out for Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ Certification logos on your chocolate this Easter. Or check out the Good Egg Guide to help in your shopping.


4. Pray with us this Easter that human trafficking will STOP.


The Anglican Church of Southern Queensland is a member of Stop the Traffik’s Australian coalition.
