SERVICE WEEK 3: Learning Wisdom from our Parents

In this worship the children learn the Bible’s teaching that we should honour our parents and the wisdom that they pass on to us.


This week’s worship is based on a short Proverb taken from the Bible for you to read together.

Proverbs 1, 8-9

Listen my child

To your Father’s instruction

And do not forsake your Mother’s teaching.

They will be a garland to grace your head

And a chain to adorn your neck.

Reflection (Discuss this together)

  • Discuss the meaning of the words in the passage with your children.
  • One of the Ten Commandments given in the Bible is about honouring people in our families. Ask your children what it means to honour someone. Can they suggest how they might behave towards someone if they were honouring them? Why is it important to do this? How might you show this?
  • In some countries garlands are made and presented to special people to help them know that they are valued. One of the things you could do at home is to make a garland of paper flowers together and write on each flower a piece of advice that you have shared in your family.


Dear God

Thank you for all the advice and help that we are given by our families.

Help us to appreciate this support and to show them how much it means to us.


Taking It Further

EYFS & Key Stage 1

  • Talk about how you can show someone that you honour and value what they do for you.

Key Stage 2

  • Why is respect an important value? Look through a newspaper and find examples of respect and lack of respect for people, property or the environment.

I hope you enjoy sharing this act of worship and the ideas in it within your family group this week.

For further worship ideas you can follow this You Tube link:


The material has been put together by a Christian drama group called Bible Tales who came into our school during the autumn term to do some work with the children.

Again I hope that you find something to enjoy and share together.
