Every Giant Will Fall – dance

In February a group of us gathered together to spend a day dancing, praying and worshipping. It was great to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. During the final part of the day, we learnt a dance together, to celebrate the main theme of the day. That every giant will fall, because God is bigger than them all.

It was amazing to see how God worked amongst each participant throughout the day, helped them to grow as a dancer and grow in their faith and draw together with others.

When we looked to build the dance we wanted to consider how God had built us up during the day, from being on our own to walking alongside God and others in our walk. Verse one began with 2, verse 3 a group of 4, before a big group took verse 3. The choruses brought everyone together, to connect, rejoice and then move on.

Enjoy watching and be blessed, don’t forget that every giant has fallen, the mountains have moved, and the chains of the past have broken in two.

He’s got a Big, Big Heart

Big Big Heart Prayer activity

Sometimes we need to know how much God carries us in his heart. This is a simple activity that you can do to help with reflection.

What you need:

  • Big heart drawn onto a piece of card
  • A mat or cloth to put on the floor in case of spillages
  • Different paints and brushes or sponges
  • Wet wipes to clean and a bin for dirties
  • Optional – felt hearts that people can take away with them, rope or something to mark out a big heart on the floor.

Invite participants to paint their hand and when they are ready print their hand inside God’s heart. There is the option if they wish to write their name in their hand in the heart, they could also choose to print a hand and write names of people who need to know they are in Gods heart too. Once they’ve done their hand print they can move into the heart drawn out on the floor and sit or stand inside Gods heart. When and if they feel ready they can then move and choose to dance right inside Gods heart.

Solid Rock I Stand

In Octobica-group-091016er I had the privilege to dance with some ladies from Emmanuel Church, Guildford, where we put together a dance to In Christ Alone/ Solid Rock by Travis Cottrell.

Putting a dance together is always such a process, but the most enjoyable thing is taking time to draw close to God and seek out what he wants to say to others through our dance. One of the over arching themes during this dance, was the desire that God is our solid rock throughout all seasons, and will carry us ‘when all around is sinking sand’. Each dancer has a different skill and set of choreography to bring to a dance, which is why it’s a privilege to work together. God speaks to us all in different ways, and that includes through different movements.

We shared the dance during a missions Sunday, which gave a great opportunity to bless others and show how dance can be used to share a message. Do hope you are blessed as you watch. Know that God will carry, He’s bigger than what you are going through, let him carry you, and build you up when you need it most.
